Games to play when bored
If previous selections have been about logic and brain enhancement, this time, our picks are focused on adventure games. The gameplay is split into levels, each increasing in difficulty as they go. The main point here is mostly having fun while playing brain-activating games. The titles here stimulate the brain to match elements together, which is a great mental exercise.
Amelie’s Mahjong has a witchy Halloween theme. It presents a roguelike experience because of its level system, which gets harder as levels go. If not cautious, the player can lose the game and must start over from the beginning. That can occur while mindlessly matching tiles, and that’s how you can be left with no twin tiles to play with.
The intriguing thing about it is the sounds and animations which help the player feel immersed. The smooth graphics provide the feeling of precise matching of tiles.
Levels are randomized, and new tiles are popping up as you progress. That helps the brain to function as it wanders and constantly searches through new patterns.
This Mahjong installment is a fresh and pleasant way to practice your mind while having fun.
Bubble Pop Adventure
See this cute mushroom? His task is to rescue his little friends who have been captured. To do this, he requires your help to guide him through. The player must match 3 or more bubbles of the same color so that our mushroom can set his buddies free.
The gameplay is spread through different levels, each with increasing difficulty again. As you progress, you can notice how more colored bubbles appear. Matching colors is pleasant in this clever installment that has characters and a little narrative behind it.
Bubble games help sharpen your brain. That is by mentally challenging it to repeat information such as color matches. Such activities are not only entertaining but also help cognitive functions. That is hidden behind the game’s mechanics.
Bubble Shooter Jungle
With Bubble Shooter Jungle it gets more complex. If the player is making extra moves, the game has a penalty, which is dropping the bubbles one step closer to the shooter. There are a total of 55 levels, each harder than the one before.
There is also no aim, so you must be careful as to how you use your moves. What is different in this version of the game is that it starts with difficult bubbles. This makes the game challenging and fun at the same time.
What makes Bubble Shooter Jungle so fun is that it’s simple and easy to play. It is competitive and provides the player with tasks that he must focus on and complete to win. Winning is essential to brain health which is why similar games are good for you. It’s because they present us with a kind of puzzle that must be figured out, and only after that, the player can get rewarded.
Solitaire TriPeaks Garden
Solitaire TriPeaks Garden is a modern take on Golf Solitaire. It is a fun way to learn the basics of card games and practice their order. Solitaire-type games are usually all about patience and exercising strategy movements. In this one, all you do is relax and only try not to forget the cards’ order.
That can be a great gateway to card games which require more brainpower and enhance one’s focus. Games of this sort activate both halves of the mind and are considered puzzle training for cognitive abilities. Recognition of patterns and memory testing is essential in games played with cards.
A great advantage is that the ruleset of card games is shown in this fun version of Solitaire. It can help you when trying to play with friends that are experienced card players.
Bubble Woods has the most variety of all the bubble shooters. What I mean by this are the achievements, in-game currency, and level-ups. Let me explain them.
The achievements are a total of 20 throughout the game, and they are used to memorialize players’ performance. There is also the game currency that is used to purchase power-ups. You can select them before each level starts. Experience is earned as you advance through each terrain which levels you up. The higher level you are, the more bonus to your score.
The game provides you with stress-relief post work. It also has a positive effect on the cognitive abilities of both children and adults.
What is fun? How to get rid of boredom?
Maybe ask yourself why you feel bored. Is your life boring by default? Do you have a purpose you crave every day? Are you in pursuit of that goal, or are you waiting for things to happen from outside? The last one is a problem.
Do you know what I found out by reviewing these games? I reassured myself that everything is perspective. You can find inspiration everywhere. What matters is how you view things. Your eyes, my eyes, they all differ. But the common thing is that when we find where the meaning lies for us, only then are we going to abandon the word “bored.”
Try those games. They are a good entry point in logical thinking, and they also help to relax the mind. The characters are also entertaining and make the games stand out.
