Top 10 most relaxing
online casual games



Some games aim to soothe and calm your nerves rather than get your heart pounding like crazy with non-stop action.



Gaming need not be all white-knuckle adrenaline-buzzing action.
Games can also soothe and relax, providing the perfect come-down after
a frantic day at the office. Think games like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on the Wii and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
on the PS3. But you don't need a console to get your fix of gaming
serenity. There are plenty of cool relaxing games you can play online
for free. So take a few deep breaths, put aside all stressful thoughts
and settle down to some tranquil fun with Casual Girl Gamer's Top 10
most relaxing online games.

1 Music Catch




When
ever things start getting to me - whether it be looming deadlines at
work, an aggressive boss or horrible events taking place in the world -
there is one game I turn to. Magically, after a few minutes play, all
my worries fade away and I feel relaxed and revived and full of new
optimism.No, the game is not called Heroin. The game is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],
a fun puzzle game where you collect yellow and purple music notes while
avoiding the nasty red notes, accompanied the whole time by some of the
best music I have heard in a Flash game. Simply brilliant. If more
people played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], I am certain there would be less bad in the world. Play the game [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

2 flOw




Created by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as part of his university thesis, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
is a unique evolution simulator, in which you guide a creature from its
first days of life, helping it to find food, fighting off predators and
exploring the world. The game's simple graphics, great sound and
intuitively simple controls make for some great, serene game play.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
is one of only a handful of games to have made it from the indie Flash
scene to a full console product. The Playstation version of the game
was launched in 2007 and has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of
times. The flash version of the game is very good and can be played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].A similar game, clearly inspired by flOw, is Ef the Game. It can be played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

3 Drift




[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
is one of the most inventive game developers around at the moment. He
makes beautiful, quirky games that blur the distinction between gaming
and art. I love all his games but if I had to choose one as my
favourite it would have to be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
You are a rabbit frolicking in a sunny meadow. Coloured balloons drift
lazily by in the warm breeze. Jump between the balloons to earn points.
Relaxing, fun game-play and inspired pastel graphics will soon have you
in a pleasurable trance. You can play Drift [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

4 Echo Genesis




I have only recently come across game developer [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and, I have to say, I am mightily impressed by their work. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
is one of their earlier games but it is typical of their innovative
approach. Indeed, one could argue that this is more interactive art
installation than game. You wander around an imaginary land,
interacting with the varied fauna and flora and exploring new places.
There are no objectives as such. Simply look, touch and move at your
own pace. Play Echo Genesis [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

5 Fishing Girl




In
real life, fishing is one of the most relaxing pursuits you can find.
But most fishing games I've played have been more frustrating than
enjoyable, thanks to complicated and unpredictable controls. Not [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],
however. The game could not be easier to play. A quick click of your
mouse extends your line. And then you dwell on the meaning of life
while the fish think about taking the bait. If you like to play games
at your own pace, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] may be perfect for you. You can play the game [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]




6 Auditorium




If
you like your games to entrance you with great music, beautiful
graphics and wickedly intelligent puzzles, then you should check out [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. One of the most beautiful games around, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
challenges you to manipulate the flow of light to illuminate a series
of sensors. You are helped in your task by tools that allow you to bend
and split the light beams. You will have to pay to play the full game
but the demo we link to offers a good few hours of relaxation.
Auditorium can be played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

7 High




We could quite easily have filled this list exclusively with games by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
In this original game, Ferry puts you in charge of the wind. Your task
is to catch flowers in a basket attached to a balloon by blowing the
balloon to the flowers. A simple idea brilliantly executed. Play High [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]




8 Flower Reaction




[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] may not be the first game to feature this chain-reaction style of game play ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
did it long before) but it is certainly one of the prettiest examples
in the genre. Combine that with some serene classical music and you
have a seriously relaxing and addictive game. Flower Reaction can be
played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

9 Loops of zen




I have a confession. I've not shared this in public before. Until very recently, I was addicted to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Not addicted as in "I quite liked playing the game" but in "I spent
every spare moment playing it". One of the reasons my husband set up
this blog for me was that it might distract me from playing this game.
It didn't work. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
is a serene puzzle game where you manipulate shapes to make sure there
are no jagged ends. If you are prone to addiction, be warned, don't
click on this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]




10 Bells




Another [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] brilliancy featuring a cute rabbit. In [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],
your challenge is to get the bunny to ascend as high as possible by
leaping on Christmas bells. The central idea of the game is nothing new
but the cute graphics, simple and intuitive controls and soothing music
make [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] a memorable and rewarding experience. Bells can be played [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
