Games for my mum

So far, my mum has fallen in love with these games:
- Up There (thank you veiled games)
- Labyrinth
- MiniPiano

And she loves watching me play / use:
- Fieldrunners (yes, it's fun to watch the little guys massacre every now and then)
- The Creeps (she loves the voices when the guys get killed)
- Shazam & Midomi

Games I would let her try soon:
- Hanoi
- Scoops

Do you guys have any recommendations?

what a great thread!
my mum loves puzzle + match games

for now she is addicted to moosentration, find your mind, drop 7, lock n' roll, and smart sokoban pro.

i would love to see her playing payback though.

My mom likes to play Pajatzo. But that could be just because she's my mom.

Trism, Smiles, Texropolis seem to be her favorite. She is way better at Trism than I am.

Am I the only on that thinks it would be funny having your mum look over at your shoulder watching you play on your Touch? Anyway, if she's into puzzle games there is Bejewelled, Collapse etc, and Textropolis and Scoops! are good.

I concur. I was playing textropolis and my mom snatched it from my hand. She even beat the game.
