Fretboard Hero will put you on the fast track to music stardom. It was created in collaboration with professional guitarists in order to help players memorize notes on a fretboard. Each session game includes a mix of questions that will ask you to read from the fretboard and locate notes on it. One wrong answer and the game is over. The game includes a variety of customization options including nine tuning categories, three gameplay styles, and an expert mode. It also records your reaction times for notes, allowing you to chart your improvement.

Why we picked this?

You’re put in control of a girl who is trapped in a world made from her dreams. Help her reach the light at the end of each level and escape her endless dream by jumping from platform to platform. The only way she can move is by tapping the symbol that matches the platform. If you tap the wrong symbol, you’ll have to start all over. As you progress through the game platforms will begin to collapse and hidden dangers will appear, so move quickly.

You need to train your brain. It requires you to recognize patterns and think ahead.

You prefer something you can sink your time into. The gameplay can start to feel repetitive midway through since each level shares the same visual style and basic concept.
