Insane in the Brain Game

Lobotomy Christmas

Insane Children Christmas

Merry Christmas from the Insane Children and Spicy Horse! Ever wonder why the Insane Children are insane? Mad looks, twitchy fingers, exposed brains – all symptoms of playing too much DexIQ!

Dan Kricke over at Appolicious provides details about this challenging new brain game in a recent review:

DexIQ’s hook is that it tests not only your IQ, but your dexterity, by making you play two different games at one time, with the screen split down the middle. It’s the iPhone equivalent to patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.

Dan goes on to give DexIQ a 5 out of 5 rating and closes by saying:

I can’t stress enough, if you’re interested at all in puzzles and games that activate the brain, you should be putting DexIQ onto your iPhone as we speak. It’s a little short on the available amount of challenges, but for under $1, you absolutely cannot go wrong.

Yoyo over at iPhone Footprint says of DexIQ in a recent review:

I don’t think I’ve had so much fun going through an IQ test, probably because it has the game tag attached to it. So at times I am squashing bugs on one side while running away from a ghost on the other. Or maybe I would be calculating sums while floating through clouds simultaneously.

Our little brain game also scored a 5 out of 5 rating in that review!

News about DexIQ and the launch of Spicy Pony has spread far and wide: Blue’s News, Avault, Buzzapp, Videogame.it and Hybrid (Korea).

The Spicy Pony team is already working on improvements to the original challenge – expect a release sometime after the New Year. In the meantime, be sure to check out the brain game everyone is going insane for.

Just a little back story for those interested: This is actually the 2nd iPhone title built at Spicy Horse, but the first to be released. The concept was created by Ken Wong, our Art Director and built by “Spicy Pony”, our little internal iPhone development team. DexIQ represents our first attempt at becoming a serious iPhone developer of fun games and entertainment apps. We’re hoping our unique location in Shanghai, China will also allow us to build apps specific for China.

If you enjoy DexIQ please take a moment to rank it (5 stars!?) and write something nice about it. If you do it’ll make my day 🙂
