Looking for game recommendations.

Games I play pretty much on a daily basis:

- Symbolism
- Solitaire City Deluxe
- Solebon Solitaire
- Mondo Solitaire
- Nurikabe Full
- Nurikabe


Games I've played enough to justify their purchase even if I never play them again:

- PuzzleQuest
- Picross games

Games I play pretty regularly:

- Pocket God
- Zombieville USA

Genres small enough for me to have explored all games available:

- Tower Defense
- Time Management
- Find the hidden object
- Find the differences

Games I'd play on a daily basis if they had an easier mode:

- Hospital Havoc
- Space Bikers

Games I wish I'd never heard of:

- Rolando
- Spore Origins

Games I find too hard:

- Theseus

What I like in games:

- Untimed
- Easy mode
- Tend to like puzzle games

Thanks!

Own: Zen Bound, Textropolis, Wordsworth, Tanzen, Tangram Express, Tangram Puzzle Pro + Holiday edition, Subway, Drop 7, Alio The Woodcutter, Zentomino, 10 Cups 7 Balls.

Decided not to get Ancient Frog. If I don't win Smiles in the contest I'll buy it.

Smiles is a fantastic puzzle game. There are no timers and you play until there are no more moves. There are tons of game modes and each has multiple difficulties.

Now prepare yourself to be told to use the search function a billion times.

In my defense I provided a lot more information than similar threads

And a search function necessitates knowing the title of the game

Not sure how much you like word games, but Textropolis is really fun.

Basically you're given and city name and you try to unscramble as many words as you can from it. Did I mention there is no timer? :-D The next city is unlocked when you find 20% of the hidden words. It's simple and fun.

And I hated Jabeh with a passion

Zen Bound is phenominal - lots of gameplay w/out too much of a commitment in time needed to be enjoyed. TONS OF CONTENT!!!!

I just picked up 10 Balls 7 Cups - again you can have fun with this in just a few minutes, or you can spend your whole evening throwing those Skee Balls and collecting tickets - really fun.
