    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! :)

    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. :D

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

    And a search function necessitates knowing the title of the game :D

    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.

    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.

    You should definitely try this but I have a feeling you already have it.

    Edit: Also their new game Zentomino has a lite version you may like.

    For your puzzle fix, try 'Subway' or 'Drop7' if you haven't already. Both are untimed game.s

    Zentomino is a great game, but much harder in my opinion.
    I personally found TanZen to be relaxing, while Zentomino can easily get stressful and puts much more strain on my brain! :)

    I find Distant Shores stress free and oddly entertaining. Same with Pocket God. I don't relax well with a timed game or amped up music. I want to relax. The new Hospital Havoc is about as rushed as I ever want to be.

    I actually found Zentomino to be much more enjoyable than TanZen, but that's probably because I used to play a Gameboy game all the time that was just like it when I was a kid. The bad part is I actually bought TanZen. Wish I would have saved my money for Zentomino :(

    You should try WordJong which gives you a daily word puzzle...very polished and untimed. Another is Orbitsu, a match-3 type of game except with a chain reaction twist. The music for both of these are very mellow.
