Brain Party is a fun, free puzzle game for all the family that's made up of 36 minigames designed to push your brain to its limits by testing memory, logic, mathematics, reaction time and more!
Brain Party is split into two modes: test mode gives you five minigames in a row and adds up your brain weight to see how smart you are, and practise mode lets you play your favourite minigames as often as you want. If you do well enough, there are six extra minigames that can be unlocked as well as a new game mode designed to keep you playing and enjoying your favourite games even longer.
Brain Party is licensed under the GPLv3 and is compatible with Linux, Mac OS X and Windows - it's free to download, share and enjoy. To get started on Linux and Mac, download the source code from the link below, then extract the tarball and run "make". If you're on Windows, the download already includes "brainparty.exe" for you to run. Have fun!
Frequently asked questions
Isn't this an iPhone game?
Yep! Brain Party is available to buy for $0.99 on the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch, and it will continue to be there. But I'm releasing it as free software because I want everyone to enjoy the game - and any developer who wants to take the source code and modify it is most welcome. Of course, if you want to support Brain Party development or if you want to play the minigames using your fingers (it really is much nicer!), you can buy it on the App Store. The only difference between this release and the iPhone release is that the iPhone version has one extra minigame - it's not included here because it relies on the accelerometer.
I'm using Linux/Mac OS X. How do I build it?
It's released as source code so that you can build it yourself. You don't need to use "configure" - just run "make" to build it, then run "./brainparty" to play.
Does it have any dependencies?
Brain Party relies on SDL, SDL Mixer, SDL TTF, SDL Image, SDL GFX and OpenGL. If you're using Ubuntu, you'll need to run the following command: sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev mesa-common-dev libglu1-mesa-dev
You may already have most of these installed already, but there's no harm being sure. Obviously you will also need a C++ compiler like GCC's G++.
Brain Party has been tested on 32-bit and 64-bit Ubuntu, Fedora and ArchLinux, so it should work fine pretty much anywhere.
