Here are some of the best memory games and concentration challenges on this website. Many of the games on this site help train other aspects of your intelligence such as reaction time or attention span.
So I thought it would be a good idea to have a separate page dedicated to memory games only.
These games train memory directly, especially short-term memory. But they also strengthen other brain skills, including concentration, perception, and reaction time.
Note: Since making this page, I've added a more complete memory games list. That page links to all the memory improvement games on this site.
When you get tired of playing these memory games, hop over to my free brain games page where there are a lot more fun games to play.
Three-dimensional mazes, like any kind of maze, help train your memory for spatial locations. It's really fun to try and find your way out of the mazes!
Quick Tip: If you get lost in a maze and can't find your way out, turn on the "auto-map" feature (press the TAB key or the "M" key on your keyboard). This displays a two-dimensional maze that shows where you've been. Play free now.
This game is really cool visually, and it is challenging. Plus it has tons of levels to play (33) and interesting side rules for bridges, switches, orange tiles, and teleporting.
I like the passcode feature too. The passcode lets you restart the game where you left off. So if you're tired by level 18, you can write down the passcode for that level and start up there again tomorrow. Play free now.
This game rocks. It's like a combination of Pong and Tron rolled into one. Every level gets faster and faster to the point where you really have to focus to beat your opponent. I think it's really cool that you can hit curved shots in this game. Play free now.
This is a simple-looking game too, but wow is it tough. The urban legend is that this game is used to test the reflexes of air force pilots.
If you can keep the red block in play for longer than 20 seconds, you definitely have my respect! Play free now.
A simple, silly game but fun (and funny) to play. It's actually a good game for training your short-term memory too.
I love the sound of the ocean waves in the background. And the kids' voices are really funny. They don't say words, just a weird "Me--me-ne-me-ne-me" sound. It's like hearing a conversation at a distance where you can't quite make out the words. Play free now.
Why do I like this game? I'm not sure. One reason it's so fun is you think you'll be able to ace it right off the bat. After all, you're no idiot, right? It kind of hurts when you mess up and the game actually insults you.
This is one of those games you can't quit playing. Fortunately it doesn't take that long to make your way through all the screens. Play free now.
This game is filled with little logic-based puzzles and interative action. I've always liked logic puzzles, and I love Scooby Doo. 'Nuff said. Play free now.
It's fun analyzing each level and trying to figure out where the "safe spots" are. Of course, then you have to get to the safe spots without getting caught by the lasers, security lights, or roving guards.
This game is basically a visual logic puzzle. Very challenging, but I like figuring stuff like this out. Play free now.
Why is this such a fun brain game? I've always liked Scrabble and this game is a lot like that. Plus the visuals and sound effects in this game are pretty cool. Play free now.
I like word searches though in the past I've usually only played them in puzzle books (on paper). But this is a neat online variation. Yet another challenging and fun brain game. Play free now.
