Cessabit: a Stress Relief Game

Cessabit is billed as a stress relief game, and I have to say I agree with that label. It will be your job to inspect each hand-drawn picture in the title to then answer questions about that image to the best of your ability. You can tap objects in each stage to uncover a few hints if you get stuck, and of course, the beautiful line art makes this game a sight to behold, so if you enjoy relaxing with a game after a long day of work, this is the release that ticks all the appropriate boxes.

PUSH

PUSH is a fun minimal puzzle game where your single objective is to push a bunch of different buttons in the correct order. What is great about this setup is the fact that there are no timers, no tutorials, heck, there aren't even any boss stages. What you see is what you get, and that is a competent puzzle game that offers a stress-free experience.

Hydropuzzle: Solve the Mystery

Hydropuzzle is a game that's difficult to explain. Sure, I could go into the details surrounding its strange story about a heatwave affecting a city, but that won't clue you in with what you should expect of the gameplay. Really, it's a release that has to be experienced to understand how you decipher its puzzles, which makes it a tough sell since there is no demo. But hey, if you are looking for something that's unique, you should definitely check this title out.

Golf Peaks

I love miniature golf games. Even as a kid, I once spent my allowance on a travel-sized golf-game while I was living in Japan, and the fact that I couldn't read the rules certainly didn't stop me from playing. So when I stumbled across Golf Peaks, you can imagine my interest was piqued. Golf Peaks is a newer title that plays unlike the majority of miniature golf games on the Play Store thanks to its card-based design. So instead of skillfully sinking your puts through action, you'll take advantage of the title's unique card-based movement system to putt your ball into the hole.
