Personal Zen is a simple game in which there is nothing special at first glance. The developers promised that by playing this game several times a week, you will be able to significantly reduce anxiety, anger, and stress.
Many professors and psychologists took part in the development of the game and tested it many times and the results were very positive.
The gameplay looks like this: You’re shown a green grass field. For a short time, there are two faces, one happy and one angry, and then they bury themselves in the grass. The tall grass line grows from the place where the happy face has dug a hole; your task is to draw this line quickly with your finger.
The goal is to teach the brain to focus on non-threatening impulses, in this case, a happy face, but here you have only a second before both faces disappear. That is, you have to be very lucky to find a happy face.
In our lives, we focus more on negative things and the basic game teaches us to look at the world differently, thereby reducing stress and anxiety.back to menu ↑

SuperBetter is a competition-oriented game that focuses on dealing with one’s own problems by making them a kind of competitive challenge. Сhallenges vary into 3 different categories: “quests”, “power-ups” and “bad guys”.
“Quests” stands for achieving something in the app. “Power-ups” are different forms of physical activities. “Bad guys” represent any kind of bad habits that players have to get rid off. Once a player has done any of the challenges they have to check the box near that challenge to tell the app that this challenge is done.
Players get scores for each challenge they have done or invited an “ally”. “Allies” are other players, so it is a sort of recruiting program.
However challenges are not-linear, so players can play however they want, on one hand, it is a good method, but on the other hand, it doesn’t focus on the teaching about how to do them, for example, how to deal with certain “bad guys”.back to menu ↑
