Web Secret 476: Fun and games
But I don't like to kill orcs, zombies or other assorted creatures. And I certainly don't want to be racing against the clock.
No, I want my games to be soothing, beautiful, and quietly challenging.
So forget first place shooter titles. Instead download:
Monument Valley I and II. If M.C. Escher could have designed a game, this would be it.
The Room I, II, III. Imagine an incredibly baroque and complex chest of drawers whose secrets unfold themselves like origami whenever you solve a puzzle.
Fairway Solitaire. Sometime I want to enjoy the junk food equivalent of gaming. Fairway Solitaire is a combo of classic solitaire and golf. It is brainless and utterly addictive. Perfect for standing online or passing time in a waiting room.
Have some fun.
