Default fun simple match 3 game for my mom?

Hey guys,

My mom doesn't really get into the complicated games, and she likes to play the match 3 type games. Our options are limited because she is still using an older 3g model and I think her FW is on 4.1.

She likes candy crush, but i'd like to find her a game that is not hampered by IAP.

Any suggestions? In the past she has really enjoyed bejeweled (I think that the name) and rise of atlantis.

Thanks

Those mahjong match games are fairly uncomplicated.

Mahjong Artifacts 1 and 2 are fun.
Mahjong Elements

Other match-3:
Kitten Sanctuary
Azkend
Piyo Blocks 2
7 Wonders

I really enjoyed scurvy, and for me this is embarrassing to admit, but even that game is a little too much for my mom. She doesn't really get into the whole level up and fight enemies concept.

she is old school and never really played any games until I gave her my old phone.

It does, but the game isnt hampered by it. My wife finished the game without any IAPs.

I second Kitten Sanctuary. Puppy Sanctuary, too -- it has one IAP, that is to unlock the full game.

Continuing with the animal theme, Cat a Lot is an adorable Samegame clone, and IIRC, it's free.

Slice It! and Doodle Fit/Doodle Fit 2 are two games that are quite simple in concept and execution, but I got a lot of play out of both.

TinyTower and Pocket Frogs are classic. Donut Games's apps are pretty simple, too, although some more than others. I like Rat on a Snowboard and Ruberth. I hear Bubble Pig is quite popular.

She may like some of the more laid-back brickbreakers like Anodia, or even some of the challenging ones like Hyper Brick Turbo.

Some fun word games include Frankenword, Textropolis, and Ruzzle.

Also, some runners are good for simplicity. RobotUnicorn, for example (the first one).
