    "I downloaded Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery on my Android phone, and I play every time I commute to work. It's a game in which you have to explore a little realm, fight with a sword against you enemy, and use magic to solve musical mysteries. Very funny! I suggest it to everyone wanting to play something "easy" and entertaining. "

    "I believe this game would be more complex and involved than desired for a simple bus ride. Any game suggested here should have been a quick, simple game. This would allow for a short trip and also the ability to pay attention to ones surroundings and be aware."

    "Crossy Road is an enjoyable casual game. It's one of the few games I play on my daily commute to work. Alas, it cannot seem to play on my iPad without wanting to lag after getting to a certain point in the game. If the developers improve it, I'd play it much more frequently."

    "This app is available for Macs, phones and tablets, and will also play on a PC. So, in addition to zoning out with an entertaining game on a mobile device while waiting for something else, you can continue your game on a computer with a monitor and keyboard. The style of this game is old-fashioned, but the art and the characters make up for that. Also, it is easy to maneuver and follow the story, so you don't have to think much about anything."

    "I've played this on both Windows and an iPad and it's great on both. You wouldn't think a retro-graphics game about what amounts to a totalitarian bureaucracy would be anything but mind-numbingly dull but it's actually very engaging and easy to get lost in. One of the most original indies I've played."
