                           Section One: Introduction                 **LBRB_1**

Welcome to another FAQ of mine. This one covers the Nintendo DS game known as
Left Brain Right Brain. This game is of a relatively unique type. It takes the
general stuff you'd find in a typical Brain Age-type game, but, rather than put
it towards edutainment, it puts towards something more ... trivial - one's own
ambidexterity, or ability to be able to use both hands in an equally-skilled
manner. It does pretty well, too.


That's all I have to say on this game. Enjoy.

                         Section Two: Version History                **LBRB_2**

                   Section Four: Start-Up and the Game Modes         **LBRB_4**


You will begin by selecting "Exercises" to create your new profile. You can
then tap an empty profile and enter the desired name for it, up to seven
letters. You are then asked which hand of yours is your "good hand".

This question simply implies the one you use in everyday activities, such as
writing. Even the truly ambidextrous have a preferred hand, so, if you are
ambidextrous, just opt for whichever hand you prefer.

You will confirm this choice, then be forced to hold your DS/DSi/3DS in a
manner as if you were using the other hand. In other words, if you are good
with your right hand, you must now rotate the DS/DSi/3DS so the text is
legible while the console is in your right hand, so you will be using your
left hand for other activities.

Game Modes

At the main menu, there are several modes:

 - Ambidexterity Check: You will play several of the minigames to see how
                        ambidextrous you are without creating a dedicated
                        profile for yourself.

 - Exercises: This creates a dedicated profile and set of statistics for you,
              as well as allowing you access to all of the minigames.

 - DS Download Play: This allows you to play two more modes in which you can
                     play against another player via Download Play 
                     (Multiplayer) or let another person play as they will
                     while you go about your business (Game Sharing).

 - Options: Here, you can configure the positioning of the DS in relevance to
            your dominant hand, erase profiles, and see the credits.

The Exercises mode will bring you to another set of menus. They are restricted
to those actually using the profile, and are as follows:

 - [Left/Right] Hand: Use five sets of three minigames to strengthen your
                      non-dominant hand.

 - Balance: See how balanced your ambidexterity is.

 - L vs. R: A quick race through a maze to see which of your hands is faster.

 - Data: See a number of statistics.

                          Section Five: The Minigames                **LBRB_5**

Throughout the course of the game, there are a number of minigames you will
play. They are found in the Ambidexterity Check, DS Download Play,
and the numerous submenus in the Exercise profiles.

Here, we will detail the minigames. For convenience, I have organized them
according to their level in the [Left/Right] Hand submenu of Exercises.

Level 1

 ~ "Touch the Green Square!": In this minigame, you are to tap the squares on
                              the Touch Screen as they turn green. Only touch
                              the green squares, as touching anywhere else will
                              prevent any tapping for a brief few seconds.

 ~ "Touch 'em All!": Here, a number of colored circles will appear on the Touch
                     Screen. Tap each of them and more will appear. Keep going!

 ~ "Surprise!": Here, you will first be faced with a big gray slab. Tap it and
                it will crack into six smaller pieces. Touch of them to reveal
                some object or animal, then to soon get another slab. Repeat.

Level 2

 ~ "Feel the Music!": In this minigame, you need to tap the notes as they turn
                      from gray to some other color. It will be oddly tough, as
                      they flash for very brief moments of time, so don't be

 ~ "Pop the Balloons!": Akin to a previous minigame, you'll have to tap all of
                        colored circles to get more to tap, and so on. However,
                        this time, they are moving. As you progress, there will
                        be more of them, moving at faster, more varied speeds.
                        I will note that the game doesn't care for actual
                        accuracy here, so feel more free to go a little crazy.

 ~ "Hit the Monsters!": The "Whack-a-Mole" of this game, you will just have to
                        tap the monsters as they pop out of the holes. Like
                        with the musical minigame, they appear very briefly, so
                        it helps to focus primarily on one hole or a small
                        group thereof. You also do get to hit the UFOs that fly
                        across the top of the screen, if you want.

Level 3

 ~ "Connect the Dots!": In this minigame, you will just have to tap one dot,
                        then drag a line through the rest of them to eliminate
                        them and receive another set. It's pretty simple... >_>

 ~ "Scratch Away!": Here, you'll receive a number of gray circles, and you'll
                    need to scratch them (rub them on the Touch Screen) to find
                    the word "HIT" beneath one of them. Remember to not scratch
                    any of the circles any more if you know it doesn't have
                    "HIT" under it!

 ~ "Save the World!": Here, a number of meteors, of slowly-decreasing sizes and
                      slowly-increasing speeds, will fall from the top of the
                      Touch Screen. All you need to do is flick them away, or
                      at least to where they are relatively harmless (top of
                      the screen), for as long as possible.

Level 4

 ~ "Open the Safe!": Here, you will see three numbers at the top of the Touch
                     Screen, and a dial below it. You simply need to drag the
                     pointer on the dial to each of the three numbers mentioned
                     previously - and you need to do so in order. There is a
                     slight margin of error allowed - within one dashed mark
                     is the limit - so feel free to go somewhat fast.

 ~ "Gather the Stars!": In this minigame, you will drag around a blue circle to
                        avoid being hit by the big red things while also trying
                        to grab the numerous blue stars. In this, you'll want
                        to prioritize survival over actually getting stars -
                        you need to live to get them, y'know?

 ~ "Roll on Down!": In this minigame, you'll need to drag the multicolor ball
                    to the left and right to avoid the pink walls. Beyond that,
                    you are measured for how far you get. Try to avoid the
                    multicolor arrows, by the way - all they really do is speed
                    you up, making it harder to get a decent score.

Level 5

 ~ "Write the Letter!": In this minigame, you will be told to write some
                        letters, obviously, and as many as possible in a given
                        period of time. This game will mostly try to just
                        detect the necessary structural strokes in the letters,
                        so just try to emulate those if the game is having
                        trouble deciphering your handwriting.

 ~ "Trace the Shape!": Much like a certain minigame on Mario Party DS, you will
                       need to trace the outline of a shape, while trying to
                       balance both speed and accuracy. Remember, you need to
                       trace the literal outline - pretty much anything else
                       will somehow penalize you - so just trace on the line.

 ~ "Navigate the Maze!": As it says, just drag the black circle through the
                         given maze without hitting anything. Just focus and
                         don't panic and you'll be fine.
