Moving to a new house or The Myst condo but preparing for a long drive ahead? You can beat boredom while moving with an online game or two, and this applies to your family members or children as well. Take a look at these five pick-up-and-play online games that can run well even on older hardware.
Hidden Object Game
As the title implies, a hidden object game lets you spend hours trying to find objects and items hidden in a picture. You can look, magnify, scroll through images, and tap to find an item to advance to the next stage.
Idle games are self-playing games- you just have to open the app and the game plays itself with little to no input from you. The genre ranges from auto-battlers to factories that run themselves, for example. These games are also lightweight and require little storage on your phone.
Classic Card Games
Classic games are easy to understand but offer a kind of depth that will have you coming back for more. From poker to baccarat and simpler ones such as solitaire, you can choose which one you’d like and go from there. Some of these games can be played offline which can come in handy if you don’t have mobile internet.
Coloring games are best played on a larger display, such as a tablet or iPad. It’s quick, relaxing and you can show off your work or save it afterward. You can even print it out and set it as a picture frame once you move to The Myst.
Sudoku or Crossword
Sudoku and crossword were originally printed in paper, but in their online form they’re much more convenient and easy to carry around. These engrossing games can take hours of commute and eliminate boredom while moving.
