Needs Instructions and No Timers

I can’t figure out how to do the game where you match the block patterns. And timers shouldn’t be on games where you need time to think.

Brain Bean!

I have been watching the TV show Brain Games with Jason Silva for 4 years. So I saw your game in the App Store. Great game! Just one small thing, I don't get "building blocks" I've been trying to figure it out for years. I just don't get the point. My favorite game on Brain Bean is pattern tiles.

Please add the option to turn off the timer

Being able to turn off the timer would make your game accessible to people with disabilities.
I downloaded it for my daughter who is physically disabled.
It COULD be a great game for her IF we could turn the timer off.
Unfortunately, the timer makes it inaccessible to her since she is not able to complete the games in the time that is allowed.

Being able to turn off the timer would also allow people to use it in kind of a ‘relaxation’ mode.

My 2 star review is based entirely on the timer. Other than that, it’s a nice, visually appealing set of games.
