Fun can be a more important aspect of creativity than most give it credit for. If life was all work and no play we would end up like Jack from the Shining, and no one wants that. But gamers know, pick up and play has become a commodity these days. With most games costing too much and taking too long to learn and master, aint nobody got time for that. But we found the perfect (short-burst) work game, and we thought we would hunt a few others down and just make a list out of it. From Slither.io to Flow Free, here are some awesome, addictive, and mentallt effective free games you all need to try, stat.
The Shape may look like a math-haters worst nightmare, but ten seconds in and you will realize how truly beneficial this game is. Using shapes instead of numbers to solve math problems may not sound like fun, but the shocking fact is that it is fun.
And you can literally sometimes smell your brain roasting from a few of these puzzles, but the pride you feel when you beat them makes it well worth it.
Easy to play yet hard to master can be a fun formula to play with. That is exactly the kind of game Free Flow is. All you have to do is create simple paths to connect colored dots. But what starts as a simple and relaxing game quickly ups the ante by upping the challenge, which makes it truly a fun and addictive game that is easy to pick up and can be quite difficult to put down.
Tingly Brain Trainer
Don’t let the name and the childish look fool you. Though this set may be aimed at younger players, you might be surprised how fun and addictive it can be to play this game. The game changes often, and is filled to the brim with mini-games that force you to use ALL AREAS of your brain, which is why this game benefits you long term.
It just one of the many games over at Poki.com created to educate AND entertain, and it does so smoothly.
Level Editor: the Game
How many of us gamers wanted to be game developers? Probably a great many. But how often do people like us get that chance? Well, this game is that chance. BUT, the fine print is that the game itself is sort of a level editor hidden behind a puzzle game.
It is quite hard to explain, but the levels themselves are messed up and need to “edited” until they can work.
Simple premise, but a great deal of fun to play AND gives you some insight into what developers and coders for games have to go through.
Honestly, this game is where we are here. Slither.io is wrecking our office right now (in the best way possible). See are all obsessed with having the bigger worm. Wait, let me back that up as it sounds odd.
Slither.io is a game where you are on-screen with other worm and snake like creatures, racing around to eat all the orcs (which the digestion of makes you larger). The whole thing is in real time with other people controlling the snakes on-screen. The controls are very intuitive, the premise is simple and as addictive as crack. Plus, like all the good games out there right now, Slither.io has a leaderboard, and whoever gets the biggest worm or snake, be it today or next week, gets their name at the top of that board.
So as you cam imagine, our office is full of people playing Slither.io when we should be working. Well, atleast we work for a gaming site and can say this is “work related.”
Thank god for THAT fine print.
Play Slither.io here.
