My day is often stressful, and my brain is usually working on overdrive. I bet many of you have the same kind of brain-clogged days that I have. Sometimes, I need to literally relax my brain by giving it calm, soothing cool-down exercises. My favorite way to do this is by playing one of three games that combine soothing music with simple, but addictive game play. All three of the following casual games involve easy mouse movements, simple flowing graphics, and brain-calming music. All three are free and browser-based, with no downloads necessary, and can be played during a quick break. Relax and enjoy.
This first game is called Flow In Games (I think). Although the premise of the gameplay is a bug eating other bugs, it is much more soothing than it sounds. Gentle mouse movements guide your bug in the direction of its food. It’s like a slow swim underwater.
Boomshine is the brain-calming game I play most often. The goal is to click once, in an appropriate spot, enabling bubbles to connect with other bubbles, until enough connections are made for each level.
Although the graphics in Music Catch are a bit old-school, the mind-mood is still tamed, as you simply move the mouse in easy motions to catch yellow shapes and avoid red shapes, while the music plays in the background.
I keep all three of these games bookmarked for the mind-breaks I need to take. Let me know if you have some that work as well.
