I have never been one to sit playing games but since I was diagnosed the nights stretch out endlessly before me. They still do even now that I am on the mend. I just don't sleep.
My Ipad is a heaven send and if I'm not researching something then I am lost in some sort of game. I am however very fussy and have rules about what I play.
- It has to be easy to understand- like really easy
- It can be stressy - as in time limited but not "skilled" like shoot this guy run through this hole etc etc because I'm mega uncoordinated
- I prefer it to be cute
- It has to have an end and be sequential because I become a little obsessive and play until I have it completed
Right now I'm in love with Bubble Mania
I don't love that you don't have unlimited energy so you have to keep waiting to repower - but then that's a good thing because otherwise I may just play obsessively. There are ample opportunities within the game to buy power and bits but I just keep it free.
Strange name but oh my goodness it's fun to play. There are a million levels (not really) - you have to fill the bathtub - each scene is different. I love it.
The crocodile puts on a tanty if you don't get him enough water. You also have to try to rescue the three ducks each time and there are hidden items to collect.
In between I also play monopoly. I have become quite ruthless when negotiating trades with my non human partner.
I like to be the thimble. I also like to control all the railroads. It's not free $7.50 but totally worth the dollars. You can pause your game too and come back to it. I love making my opponent be the race car or the dog or the battleship. They zoom around the board. You can also customise your "house rules". So I double the landing on go money and I always have us start with $2,000 in the bank. For the record I have won half the games and the computer the rest. I really want to win more LOL.
I haven't played this for a while but I went through a Plants VS Zombies stage. I worked through to the very end (using utube cheats - told ya obsessive ) so I'm not sure if they have released more lands. This one is $3.00 I think but I was happy to pay for it.
Richard just shakes his head when I enter game playing mode. He says it's so out of character for me - which I gues it is but it makes me happy.
So tell me any must play games that fit my criteria? They also have to be for ipad (so an app) as I tend not to sit in front of my computer much these days. Please don't recommend Angry Birds - I've really tried to like it because I know so many people do but I can not for the life of me work it out.
