This game requires very little mental ability - except to move each of your hands around. If you want to strengthen your week hand (the one you don't normally use), then it's OK for that. If you are fairly abidexterous already, there's not much point. When I was in 8th grade, I used to write letters with my left hand (I'm mostly right-handed) and my friend would write with her right hand (she's left-handed) - as a result, I write fairly well with both hands & the game labeled me as "balanced" (though some friends & family members might argue that point)! LOL! :) Anyway, the point was there wasn't really anywhere to go once you're already balanced (according to the game's standards) - so I wasn't motivated to play again. Glad I rented rather than purchased on this one. Then again...that's why I have my Gamefly account - so I can try out games I'm interested in to see if it's really something I want to keep! :)

I've had this game for over a month now because I had forgotten I had rented anything. I thought I was getting Super Mario Galaxy when I was stuck with this. Graphics are cute and simple. Although once I apparently became ambidextrous I realized I still couldn't do anything with my left hand. Don't rent it. It's not worth it. l:-(

Both my wife and I played this and scored between 90% and 100% on our first try. Even when we got into some of the harder games, there was no change. Neither of us considers ourselves to be ambidextrous, but according to this game we are. Despite that evaluation, I still suck at throwing a ball with my left hand and I can't write worth anything. You'll only find this game difficult if you've never really played games until the DS.
