    "I love that this solution includes a note about using headphones. I normally don't play games with my sound on, but for this specific scenario I am now excited to hear the beautiful and interesting soundtrack that seems to be a large selling point. I am hesitant to pay for a game, as I usually stick to the free to play games on iOS."

    "This game is entertaining for both quick breaks or for when you've got time to kill; you can play any number of quick, 60-second games you like and aren't locked into a lengthy storyline. My kids enjoy it too (and can spot the rare gems faster than I can), and we can make it a family activity by competing with each other. Rules are easy to understand and you can succeed whether you buy Coins or not. "

    "Man, I love puzzle games. Especially when they are relaxing. I think I know of one that you might like. It's called Shadowmatic. It's about rotating asbstract objects to find recognizable silhouettes. And there's much more but I recommend you got out and check the trailer for it. I love the game. "

    "Mini Metro is a cool game, but it's a strategy game. I wouldn't call it a relaxing puzzle game in the least. It requires some definite thought if you are going to advance and make it work. As long as you like strategy games, it's a good option, but if you're looking for a truly relaxing puzzle game on IOS, you should keep looking."

    "I know that many people are playing this game and I do not think that they are relaxing. After some point the game becomes ridiculously hard and people get mad at not leveling up. But still they do not give up playing it, instead they play more and pray for the random generator god. "

    "Fun game for my phone but not very relaxing. It had me more stressed than relaxed after playing. It is a casual game just not very relaxing. But I guess that depends on each person. "
