How do I turn game sounds on or off?

While playing a game, press the Android back button or pause the game. This will bring up the game menu. Toward the bottom you will see a toggle to turn the sound on or off.

Game sounds are also tied to the system media volume. Turning that up or down should also affect in game sounds.

What happened to my percentile data?

Setting a different age range will reset all percentile data for a player.

Percentile data is unique, in that it measures your performance against others in the same age group. Changing your age group will put you in a new percentile range and reset your data.

How do the leaderboards work?

Leaderboards are shared between all players within your account.

What is "Avg Acc" or "ACC"?

"Avg Acc" or "ACC" is the current players averaged accuracy over the last three games played. This metric can be found within the game preview cards on the training and game listing pages.

What is a percentile?

This metric represents how well you score compared to other people in your age range.

Selecting a different age range for a player will reset all tracked percentile metric data.

How does the "auto" game difficulty work?

All games have three different difficulty levels: easy, medium and hard. If a player has selected "auto" then all game difficulties will scale up or down based on the current game performance.

The higher the difficulty level, the more points you can get for correct answers. If you are shooting for a high score, it behooves you to play at the highest difficulty level.

This setting can be changed within a player’s profile, before a game starts or when a game is paused.

Account Management

What happened to the login page?
