A perfect fit for the DS

This new training game for the DS fills a void that others haven't: spatial training. Space/Figure Hirameki Training is a collection of training tasks for kids that teaches spatial skills by requiring players to match shapes in a variety of situations. The examples in this set of screens include laying out a room in 2D based on a 3D image, and correctly identifying a cross-section of a cake.

We appreciate it when a developer gives their training game a look that diverges from the usual clinical Brain Age style. Most DS training games are designed for adults, and have to have 'adult' style. Appropriately for children's software, Hirameki Training is bright, colorful, and cute.
