From Wikipedia: 

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree includes a single-player mode whereby the player uses a brain to effectively answer questions correctly. The game also includes a multiplayer mode, where the player can competitively train against other players. Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree makes use of the Wii Remote, allowing the player to point and click on-screen.


There are 15 mini-games within Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree, divided into five categories:

  • Identify (identification-themed questions)
    • Whack Match
    • Fast Focus
    • Species Spotlight
  • Memorize (memory-themed questions)
    • Covered Cages
    • Face Case
    • Reverse Retention
  • Analyze (reason-based questions)
    • Match Blast
    • Speed Sorting
    • Block Spot
  • Compute (math-themed questions)
    • Balloon Burst
    • Mallet Math
    • Colour Count
  • Visualize (visual-themed questions)
    • Art Parts
    • Train Turn
    • Odd One Out

Solo mode[edit]

In this mode, the player is challenged with each of the five categories in random order. There are 12 questions per category (four for each minigame), resulting in 60 questions in total. The player is scored based on speed and accuracy; the faster one answers a question, the more "grams" they earn (which represents their score), but an incorrect answer scores no grams. The difficulty of the questions adjusts based on the player's score.

Each mini-game can be played separately, and depending on the results, the player can be awarded a medal, according to their score. There are four levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert. The Expert level is not visible until gold or platinum medals are acquired on all of the previous three. Platinum Medals can be earned in each of the difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert), but the score needed to do so differs in each level.

The four multiplayer modes in Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree allow the player to test their brain against up to seven other players.

Mind Sprint allows two players to go head-to-head in a split-screened race, and up to eight players can play as two teams. If a player answers incorrectly, they are stopped for about a second and have to answer the same question. One player or team can compete against player records (a computer opponent with skills based on that player's best test performance).

In Mental Marathon a team works together (or an individual works alone) to score as many points as possible within a time limit. Extra time is rewarded after each question, based on the length of the next question; less time is awarded as the game goes on. One mistake ends the game. A maximum score of 100 is possible.

In Brain Quiz players take turns choosing from a selection of 12 categories. Each category has a difficulty attached to it, though this is hidden until the category is selected. When the player selects a category with a red ?, if the player is lucky the difficulty is medium with double points, if unlucky the difficulty is expert. During their turn, players must try to answer as many questions as possible within the time limit, but one wrong answer ends the turn. This mode is notable for having 5 extra games, one from each category, that do not appear elsewhere in the game. The five games only in this mode are Order Out (Memorize), True View (Visualize), Tick-Tock Turn (Compute), Pattern Puzzle (Analyze), and Frame Filler (Identify), for a total of twenty games.

In Academic Succession two teams of two are assembled. Each team starts with one player. Each team alternates turns deciding on the category for the next question. The selected player from each team races to answer the question. When a player gets the question right, they switch places with their teammate. Big Brain Academy is considered the best college in the country
