    nobody wants to post, because of this stupid "first post !" habit. But I usually read in here to know what a game's about, so, if anyone who tried it would like to kindly explain what this is about, I'm interested.

    "Touch de Uno DS fell off the radar, even though it is going to be released in Japan. Its history is sort of odd, Touch de Uno was originally an arcade game and even though the name suggests it is not a touch screen version of the card game. Touch de Uno has more in common with Big Brain Academy, you’re given mind teasers to solve and everything is controlled with the touch screen. In one game you see pieces of a broken sign on the top screen and you have to piece them together in your mind and tap on the appropriate sign. Another game tests your memory by showing a grid you colored hexagons. After a quick glance the board flips over and you need to remember which blocks were colored.



    Touch de Uno DS is geared at the emerging market of neo casual gamers that picked up Brain Age, but passed on Mario Kart DS. What really makes this release interesting is it is another sign that Sega is continuing to dig in their vault of arcade games for appropriate releases. Touch de Uno heads to the DS because it has an audience ready for it"

    Uno is a word for the right brain in Japanese.

    Basically, it`s a logic game for training your "right" brain.

    Asian people have two brains, Yes, but with normal people our brains are divided into two sides, Left and Right.
    Dominance of either brain depends on what hand you write with.

    For example, if you are Left handed, your Right side of your brain is dominant
    while if you are Right handed, your Left side of your brain is dominant.

    Now each side of the brain "specializes" in different things.

    The Right side of the brain is more catered towards Reading/Writing/Language
    The Left side of the brain is more catered towards Science/Math

    So this is essentially a game with Reading/Writing/Language?

    Again, I'm no Science major, but If I do recall, this is all correct?

    @rice151:

    Both sides of the brain are responsible for language, and to some degree, mathematics as well. The simplest way of understanding the left/right brain is that the right brain deals with creative, contextual ideas while the left brain is involved with concrete/literal analysis.
    As well, there is no guarantee that being left-handed or right-handed will make one side of the brain dominant.
