Unfortunately, the overly-sterile art style and inherently simple nature of the games invite comparison to Welcome Park, an app that's preloaded (and free) on every Vita. One game has you tapping the front or rear panel based on on-screen prompts, which makes it feel like a system tutorial more than a game meant to expand your mental capabilities. Smart As would probably work best as a free-to-play game, like Treasures of Montezuma Blitz. However, Sony is positioning the title as a full retail game--not just a PSN download. Given the simplicity of the experience, this is definitely not a title that will help Vita fly off store shelves.
Can you guess the right letter?
