View Full Version : Popcap or similar game
06-25-2010, 03:22 AM
Can anyone suggest me any new interesting casual games like popcap, gamehouse, wildtangent or similar game?
I've already tried this:
1- plant vs zombie
2- farm frenzy 2
Anything newer than Plant vs Zombie would be good. No gyromancer.

Where shall I start? I know, I'll start with the ones currently on my computer.
In no particular order:-
1. Settlement Colossus
2. Trio: The Great Settlement
3. Fishdom 2
4. Be a King
5. Dream Chronicles - The Book of Air Collector's Edition
That should keep you going for a while.

Thanks. But any other more titles that are towards more real casual. I mean for those people who don't even know how to play game. Just like Farm Frenzy and Plant vs Zombie. Those which involve repeatation. And no puzzle like bejewel and other puzzle either.

that last requirement pretty much obliterated anything I might suggest :) Sounds like a pinata!
Since steam is having a big sale right now you might want to browse through their virtual aisles to see if anything catches your fancy. Also check out gog.com to see if any of their 'older' games appeal to you.

Haha sorry about that :p. I try finding new games to replace those titles I mentioned above. Actually it's for my siblings. Since all of them aren't gamer at all, only casual titles appeal to them. They don't even want to play trine saying it's complex!

Have you looked at Galcon Fusion? Its a strategy game and also multiplayer if you want to play against others but, at its core, Its pretty repetetive and the concepts are simple.
I have lost about eight hours of my life this week to that one. many more hours to be spent soon.
I think there is a demo available for it so you can test the waters before spending on it :)

Ooh I watch some gameplay video. Look likes a quite fun. I might check it later for myself. I don't think my sibling could handle that. They will says it's look complex.

Try Garden Defense. It's not as good as PvZ, but it comes quite close ;)
And if your siblings are into tower-defense, have a go at Defense Grid and Sol Survivor ;)

Maybe try Hinterlands...it's a fairly simple town builder/hack and slasher where you protect a town and go out and destroy monster settlements and capture resources. Meanwhile, you have to build up the town by recruiting people and building shops/inns/smithies/hunters/mage towers/gaurds/ect. You can also take up to 3 companions with you monster hunting and the level up with you and can equip items you find in combat or have created from town folk.
It sounds more complicated than it is, and you can set the setting to be pretty casual.

Wow thanks for bringing some really fun title up. I guess Garden Defense is quite suitable for my siblings. And that hinterland could really hooked me. Too bad there no sale at the sale now. I need to search somewhere later. Hack and slash, simple town build, resource, slaves, level up, loot and inventory. They really put some good recipe inside it. Too bad the cover quite mess the whole points they got.

I highly recommend Shatter. It's easy to pick up and really tough to master. It's only $9.99 on steam too.
Hundreds of similar and free games.
Highly recommend "Gemcraft tower defence chapter 0", it is perfect.
Also i like "Protector IV"

My mom really loves Peggle, and she barely knows how to operate an internet browser (to give you an idea, I once pointed at the screen showing her where to click, and she let go of the mouse and pressed the screen).
All you do is basically point and shoot, then spend the next few seconds watching the ball bounce around and combos going off.

Peggle is an addicting game...my wife pretty much despises video games (my fault :D ) but she saw me playing peggle on the Xbox live and after that played that shit for DAYS lol!

True that. Peggle is quite the family games. Many of non-gamers people that I know love it. Though I'm not that addicted. :)

My wife likes to play a lot of casual games and some of her favorites include Plants Vs. Zombies and Farm Frenzy that you mentioned.
Other games she really seems to enjoy include the Westward series, Totem Tribe, and the Virtual Villagers series. She is not a hardcore gamer and she finds all of those games to be quite enjoyable.

I noticed the Peggle discussion here and just thought I'd mention that you can get a free copy of Peggle Nights, for yourself or as a gift, by signing up with an email address to the Popcap Games Passport right now. Not sure how long they've had that offer or how long it lasts though.

There's Feeding Frenzy (on Steam there's Feeding Frenzy 2 deluxe on offer). A very simple game where you have to eat smaller fish to grow. Your fish can be controlled with the mouse.

Peggle came to mind right away. Get it if you like casual.
