We get it, when we get old our reflexes are not as sharp as they used to be. But does that mean that we should give up playing games on our phone?
Well no, instead, we just need to tone it down; just a bit, get our mind off of that sniper shooter and get hooked on some really interesting games that we can enjoy without stressing ourselves or our aging muscles.
While it can help children have more focus, it can definitely help us get our daily dose of entertainment while keeping our skills sharp. Trust me, there’s nothing better than a game of chess to wind up your day with a mug of hot chocolate (hold the sugar if you have diabetes).
Moving on, here are some of the best free games available for Android users that I feel are absolutely safe for the elderly.
Chess is believed to have originated in Eastern India before the 7th century. Since then, we have seen several versions of this game. However, the basics remain the same. Each player begins with 16 pieces, including the king and the queen. The sole objective of this game is to claim victory over the other side.
This free game on Android is a digital replica of the original game. You can choose the sides and claim victory while abiding by the global rules.
It’s a free-to-play game supported by non-intrusive advertisement. Unlike the physical game, you can undo a wrong move and even save a game if you want to take rest. Everything is possible in this digital era.
Well, to be honest, I play this game all the time. It helps me find newer words and is perfect for doing something during leisure.
As the name suggests, in Word Connect, you have to swipe between various letters to form words that are a part of the puzzle while adhering to the character limit.
This is more of a relaxing game as there is no time limit. It starts off easy, its initial puzzles till level 16 are fairly easy but they get more difficult as you level up.
As a reward, you are given coins for completing chapters and solving bonus words. You can use these coins to buy hints if you get stuck somewhere.
There are no in-app ads initially but, as you progress, you will see ads after each level. Thankfully, the ads are only in the form of photos and not videos.
Simple mathematics is a part of our daily lives. It helps us in more ways than you could ever imagine. For a few of us, solving even the most complex math equation is fairly simple.
But, if you’re one who depends heavily on calculators then you probably take more time than usual to solve even the simplest of problems, you should give Math Master a try.
It’s a game that teaches you math in the most entertaining way and at your pace. You can choose the level of difficulty and complexity. Enough talk … I think you should hit that download button and see for yourself.
