This week, we launched a new Problem Solving game on web and mobile: Fuse Clues. Fuse Clues challenges logical reasoning, or your ability to combine multiple cognitive processes to recognize patterns, draw conclusions, and make decisions. Fuse Clues requires logical reasoning skills to fix a power outage in an apartment building. You’ll go from apartment to apartment, restoring electricity to each by completing numerical patterns.

Our new Language category is the culmination of a concerted effort from the Lumosity Games and Applied Science teams to conceptualize, research, develop, and polish a suite of five word games that allow our community to practice and engage their English vocabulary.
