Objectives: Games that purport to stimulate cognition are increasingly used in intervention, leading to a need for comprehensive information regarding the putative benefits of game-based approaches for remediating cognitive functioning.

Methods: A systematic search of MEDLINE, ERIC, PsycInfo, CINAHL was conducted to document the methodology and outcome of game-based cognitive interventions, leading to 448 references. Titles and abstracts were initially screened with respect to inclusion and exclusion criteria and 396 studies were rejected. The 52 remaining articles were read in full and 14 were retained for review.

Results: Most studies found positive outcomes suggesting that using games is effective for improving language, attention, executive functions, reasoning, and face processing. Games and protocols varied greatly within and across domains.

Conclusion: While game-based cognitive intervention is a promising approach in paediatrics, lack of methodological precision can limit reproducibility and applicability. Recommendations for the design and reporting of game-based cognitive interventions are proposed.
