Mom's Favorite Tablet and PC Games

Updated on November 4, 2013

Fun Games For The Tablet and PC

There are a whole host of great tablet and pc games that are perfectly suited for a few hours, or for a whole evening of relaxing entertainment. Once my mom discovered these games, she began a collection of what she considers the best pc games.

When you are shopping for a new video game, you will find some that are downloadable, so you don't have to wait for shipping; you are ready to play in just a few minutes. You may even find free game downloads, and there are actually some quality ones available.

Some of the video games listed here are hidden object games, some are played on a timer, and some are played by matching rows of like objects. The low cost of these video games make it easy to choose the game you're in the mood for at the moment.

Search for Hidden Objects in Amazon

The Love and the Darkness

Hidden Object Quests 1

Great Hidden Object Games for the Kindle and Android

There are so many great games available for your Kindle and Android Tablets, that you'll have a ton of fun just looking through the options! Take a look at some favorites I have featured to the right . . .

These hidden object games are available as an instant, wireless download at no extra charge so you can order and play without leaving home!

You will want to make sure that the video game you are going to download is compatible with your particular operating system.

In Hidden Expedition: Amazon from Big Fish, you will be searching for a professor who is lost in the Amazon rainforest. You'll be exploring temples and ruins as you use the professor's passport to find clues. 19 levels include hidden object scenes, mini-game brain teasers, and a Chapter Select feature that allows you to replay your favorite scenes as many times as you like!
