V is a free to play game that challenges you to complete a simple yet challenging task involving answering a yes or no question correctly. It sounds incredibly easy but the game pressures you to do it quickly while using tricks to confuse your brain.
Test your brain power by challenging yourself
The game is essentially a video game Stroop test. You will be shown a list of words and asked to left click if the colour of the word matches the name of the word or right click if it does not. The challenge is to do this as fast as possible and it quickly becomes evident that it's very easy to get confused. The game has a frequency counter which makes this even harder, as it is constantly counting down and once you get to 0 you lose, but you can gain time for every correct answer you get. V makes things even more challenging by going out of its way to distract your brain and make you waste time, such as turning the screen upside down and providing irrelevant distractions.
Simple gameplay belies a tough challenge
Our brains use shortcuts in thinking that V exploits and challenges you to overcome. The gameplay sounds easy, but once you try doing it quickly the challenge soon becomes apparent.
