You need to pay attention with this one. Some of my pictures became obscured and then I couldn;t work out how to get into the forum to ask about it. Well worthy project though :)

That's fascinating - it is such a clever idea to use a computer game to show brain function. :D I couldn't seem to download it :-/

That's because it's a smartphone game, AKA not for PCs.
But if you really want it, get an emulator - a program that lets your computer behave like a different system, e.g. behaving like a smartphone so you can use smartphone apps on a PC.

I once used an emulator to run Linux-only programs on a Windows PC, although I must admit I've never used a gaming emulator before.
