Island of Dr. Brain  
Education   Problem solving

This follow-up to the classic Castle of Dr. Brain sadly doesn't live up to its predecessor, mostly because the wonderful variety of educational puzzles in the original is reduced to a boring lot of language puzzles (e.g. word search and grammatical games) that feels more like English 101 than anything else. Most puzzles also seem too hard for the intended age group of 12+ yrs. old. Overall, the game will be fun only to those who like grammatical challenges, and not as original as its predecessor.
