Computer Shopper, August 1995
"This entertaining program offers brain-numbing logic
puzzles wrapped in rich graphics and warped by a zany theme."
"The program features creative logic, deduction, and timing
puzzles that have you routing cells, much like trains on a railroad track, or
moving them in a hockey-like game by introducing energy patterns. It also has
3-D puzzles that ask you to re-create objects one side at a time, word/letter
scrambles, filing games, multilevel mazes to navigate, programming games that
set robots in motion, and music activities. The relentless sequence of puzzles
can wear thin after a while, but kids and adults should have a great time and
come back for more because the puzzles are well designed.
"The game isn't linear - if you get stuck, you can try
another type of puzzle. Dr. Brain poses three difficulty levels to challenge
players from eight-year-olds to adult. Our young testers, ages nine to 12, were
immediately hooked, and grown-ups had fun as well."
PC Gamer, December 1996
"When Dr. Brain transfers his intelligence into a lab rat,
children can rejoice because the search for a remedy is a playground for the
nervous system. Sierra's program challenges children to conquer various puzzles
that have been souped up with action game techniques.
"The Lost Mind of Dr. Brain has a thin, but sufficient story
line running through the puzzles: The race to restore Dr. Brain's intelligence,
the various persona taken on by lab rats in each puzzle, the pedantic niece's
explantions of the mental process being affected by each puzzle all spin an
appealing yarn through the program.
"While the graphics and plot are well crafted, the puzzles
are the crowning jewels. Some puzzles are new, such as Train of Thought which
requires players to direct balls across tracks and through switches in a
particular order. Other puzzles may be familiar, like Synaptic Cleft which is a
remake of an old Macintosh favorite called Crystal Quest. Each puzzle features
20 levels of difficulty, starting out so simply that players can build on their
"The Lost Mind of Dr. Barin has great educational value, but
the lessons are well camouflaged. Players develop their logic, their memory,
their spatial perception and many other thinking skills as they work through
Dr. Barin's games. These are the kinds of exercises that can't be duplicated in
the real world, making this package an excellent and most engaging choice."
