Dementia is a syndrome characterised by the decline of mental skills such as memory, reasoning, language or perceptual interpretation. High rate of deaths and high cost for detection, treatments and patient's care count amongst its consequences. The aim of this work is the creation of low cost and efficient tools to help with the detection of Alzheimer. In addition, current game technologies have proved to be a convenient tool for healthcare due to the flexibility to create certain situations
