    "If you are like me and you love relaxing and beautiful puzzle games then you are going to love Monument Valley. The maps are very colorful and engaging and you always get a different scenario that keeps you thinking from level to level. A lot of times you run into some repetition with puzzle games and it takes the fun out of it, but you are not going to have to worry about any of that with Monument Valley. "

    "This game is not relaxing at all, the colors stick out like a sore thumb. I also felt like the soundtrack was bad at breaking any immersion the game did have."

    "Need a brain break from work? iTunes Quell offers creative fun that we all crave in a game. It takes a person to another reality to get away from our present realities Users review say it is a relaxing game. It requires thought vs action and timing packed stressful maneuvering 'AHHHHH, I don't want to diiiie!' crunch time. It also gives the user instant gratification. Daily work often does not and so why do more of THAT? The music is not annoying and has a friendly soundtrack which is very appealing. Quench your thirst for something different and go serene with the game of Quell. You will never be in game hell."

    "Eufloria HD is a really nice Android game that isn't aggressive or scary. It has helped the kids calm down after a long day, and it is nice for me and my wife to play when we just need a moment to ourselves to relax. The overall style of the game universe is beautifully designed, and we love being in it!"

    "As a gamer I can tell when a game will end up being frustrating. Roll the ball looks to be a relaxing game at first but as you go up in levels the harder the game will get. It seems to start off slow but as seen in the video it gets harder with pieces you can not move and with shapes that make the puzzle game hard. There are better relaxing puzzle games if you want something easier to play."

    "Shadowmatic is a really beautiful game. The colors and textures look great. The game is really good, too - if you're already great at solving puzzles. The learning curve on this game is far too high. It's pretty frustrating. This isn't the type of game to fire up on your Android and relax."

    "I feel that the game is very basic even though the concept is unique. I think that it may be the best relaxing puzzle game because not many puzzle games to me, are relaxing. I'm not a big puzzle game fan, but I think this game would be better if it talked more about the animals or have more animal features in the game. "

    "This is a classic game and deserves the acclaim and success that it has received. However, I was recommended this as a relaxing puzzle type game, and this doesn't fit that bill. It is much too frenetic to be relaxing. If I was looking for the fast paced action that this series is known for, this would be perfect. But for a relaxing games, I have to keep looking."

    "I am completely hooked on this game! Growing up, I always had an affinity for puzzles and often spent a few hours at a time piecing them together one by one. This definitely brings me back to those days, and I have probably spent just as much (if not more) time playing this game! The graphics are really great, and it is perfect for any age and any level of gaming experience. It's a super addictive game that boasts easy game play and lovely graphics. It is fun, casual, and easygoing, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys puzzle games of any kind."

    "To give you an idea of how much I love this game, I downloaded it way back on my Nexus S, kept it on my Nexus 5, and now have it on my Pixel (working through replaying all levels a third time). Favorite puzzle game: good tutorial, learning curve & balance. Makes you feel smart when you conquer a daunting puzzle; nice "a-ha!" moments. I play other games, but always come back to this one. Highly recommended."

    "Bejeweled is rage inducing. Not the best recommendation for a relaxing game unless you're a complete casual. Also, where is the wide variety of games? There are more puzzle games than bejeweled, I'm not a 40 year old mom player her first mobile game!"
