Starlight - as with most online brain games, this is played entirely with the mouse (or track pad if you are using a laptop). Move the cursor and watch the sky shift its position until it reveals the hidden image. That's it for the controls, let's take a closer look at the game!
How long was it since the last time you wished upon a star? Or better yet, think about when was the last time you simply looked up at the sky filled with stars. Well, most people just go about their lives... never looking up and just training their sights forward. HOWEVER, playing Starlight, one of the most colorful brain games created by Kostiantyn Stankevych, may intrigue you enough to have you looking at the star filled sky much more often.
Since the brain game's control scheme is so simple, Starlight is easy enough to pick up and play for just about anyone - even a toddler.
The game comes with 3 game modes: (1) Relax Mode - There are no time limits, no scores to beat. Just chill and enjoy this brain game and its benefits. (2) Time Run - If you think you are good enough, take on this game mode where you try to finish the game as fast as possible. (3) Timer - As the game mode's name suggests, this mode gives you a time frame to solve the WHOLE game. Can you beat it?
While all 3 games are very enjoyable, I think the best way is to just enjoy the game. Just take your time, ignore the score. That's especially true for young players. Why pressure them to earn points when the sky's the limit?
How To Play Starlight - (1) As I have mentioned earlier, you need to move your mouse or track pad to change the orientation of the sky and its stars. (2) Your goal is to find that angle or view point where the stars form a picture. (3) When you complete a level, you will receive 200 points. (4) If you one of the brain game's levels are giving you a hard time, click on show solution. You will be taken to a level-by-level video walkthrough. But then, that takes out a lot of the fun so keep your viewing of the walkthrough to a minimum.
Brain games are not just fun, but they are very beneficial in enhancing certain cognitive skills. And Starlight is NOT an exception. This game does a good job of improving your spatial perception. For those of you who don't know it, spatial perception is the ability to evaluate how things are arranged in certain space and determine their relationship to the environment.
Having excellent spatial perception allows you to grasp the arrangement of your surroundings and how you relate to it. It's the skill that keeps you from colliding with the different objects around you. When you are shopping for example, with the help of spatial perception, you perceive the layout of a store, pinpoint the entrance, and those are just to name a few. And in this brain game, it will help you find the right angle / viewpoint to show those hidden images / constellations.
Coming at you with soft music, radiant colors, plus a total of 64 levels - this brain game will surely entertain you. That may sound like a lot BUT after playing a level or two and getting the hang of it, you will easily sail through them. If you're looking for something to unwind with, this is a game you should check out.
