Default Grandmother(80) looking for games

Hey there

So we bought an iPod Touch 4gen for our 80years old granny and she is enjoying it very much.

I downloaded her several apps(games) and she enjoyed the following the most


1. fruit ninja
2.tap the frog
3.angry birds


She likes fast paced games with touch controls..


What other games would you recommend me (ones you can get addicted to and are not difficult to play)

Thanks!

Granny Smith - Seriously, look it up, awesome game for anyone of any age.
Siege Hero - Best physics puzzler IMO on iOS. My kids and my parents enjoy this as much as I do.
King Oddball - another solid physics puzzler... but different from other stuff.
Super Stickman Golf - ... ok... I'm recommending another physics game, but it's golf.

I'd find out what kind of puzzles and stuff that she likes and get something like that she likes.

Cordy 2 is free to try and it's amazing.
All games by adult swim,especially Bring me sandwiches and Super monsters ate my condo.
Amazing breaker HD
The Pinball Arcade
Jetpack Joyride

If she enjoys these i got loads of recommendations.

Cordy 2 is quite good
Adult swim games are a bit silly for some people
Definitely Jetpack joyride.
If she likes angry birds get the other versions the best are seasons and space IMO.

It's always good to check out gameplay vids to see if it fits your taste,but the gameplay is amazing in adult swim games. Besides, Super monsters ate my condo is currently free.

Almost forgot to mention Frisbee Forever 1&2 and Subway Surfers. Both free and highly recommended.

Free games:

7 little words (great free word game, super easy to use)
Blendamaze (labyrinth style.. She would like that as she probably played classic labyrinth when she was growing up)

Paid:
Liquidsketch


Maybe she should try some point and clicks.. There's plenty of lite versions of them.. Big fish games have heaps.
