    "I really enjoy this game. Not only is the game beautiful, visually stunning and unique, but it also has a good psychological effect. Having depressive disorder, the game helps me take a dark environment (which is symbolic of how someone with depression sees the world) and brings it to live in color, which is symbolic of one's mood getting better. Not only does it fill the casual game need for the player, but the psychological need for the human."

So I really wanted to like Blendoku. But I just couldn't get into it. I felt like I was working at a paint supply store, arranging colors to no good purpose. The game felt too simplistic too me, and not really engaging enough. "

There isn't much of actual Minecraft gameplay in the game, but I guess that's to be expected. I don't think I'm the target audience for this."

It requires a lot of work actually to do effectively and is a time waster.

    "Goat Simulator is a classic when it comes to casual gaming, and from the looks of it, GoatZ fits right in alongside the rest of the franchise for Android. It offers diverse gameplay to allow for more casual entertainment, but makes room for people who want to have more of a challenge. I'm only concerned with the amount of one-star ratings - do other people NOT see this game as a good solution to this problem?"

    "GoRummy is the type of Android game that is the best in its field for casual players, such as myself. After downloading the game on my Android phone, I was presented with several different rummy games to play. That included; Points Rummy, Pool Rummy, Leagues, and last but not least, the classic 13-card Indian Rummy. I have to admit, I spend hours on end enjoying these different varieties. I also have to admit, that Leagues has been my favorite rummy game thus far. I think I spent more time in waiting rooms, and break-times, playing this one. If I didn't take the chance at purchasing this game, I would have greatly missed out on an impressive casual gaming experience. "
