About Pizza Builder:
Virtuleap offers a catalog of brain training games, through Enhance VR (its proprietary distribution platform and performance tracker), that test and train various cognitive functions.
Pizza Builder is part of that catalog and is specifically designed to train the player’s planning skills and “divided attention” proficiency .
The player has to assemble and cook pizzas by herself and fulfill the most amount of incoming orders possible, in the shortest amount of time.
The orders will keep arriving with various combinations of ingredients being asked and vary in terms of quantity and type of ingredients.
The process of cooking a single pizza goes from preparing the dough, to putting the sauces and ingredients, until the time where the pizza must be put in the oven.
The player must manage its cooking time, to prevent it from overcooking or getting burned, while managing the new pizzas that must be assembled to fulfill the incoming orders.
The Enhance Library:
“Enhance is a distribution platform that offers a library of VR brain training games that test and train various cognitive skills.
“Research demonstrates that VR engages multiple learning systems, which makes it more effective and natural environment for cognitive training than 2D screen-based brain training apps.
“Virtuleap combines neuroscience and virtual reality to help increase attention levels, and address cognitive illnesses, disorders, and learning challenges.
“We are working with leading institutions across the U.S. and Europe, like the VA Health Care System and the Pacific Brain Health Center, to validate their solution as an effective assessment and treatment for attention deficit and cognitive decline.”
