Do you like playing games? Do you know that the games you play are called casual games?
Very often the term “casual” confuses most players. Actually, there is nothing to write home about. They are the games that you can play from time to time just to relax, to spend an hour or two…
Casual games are of different genres and game-play. You may manage a farm (the Farm Frenzy
series), create an ancient empire (Cradle Of Rome
), investigate a mysterious case (Mushroom Age
). You may be in charge of a tribe lost somewhere on the islands (My Tribe
and Totem Tribe
). You may go further and take a trip through time as in Mortimer Beckett and The Time Paradox
, Alabama Smith in Escape from Pompeii
I can make a bet that many of you don’t know that the first casual game was … Tetris. This hit of the 90th was invented by a Russian computer programmer in 1984. Of course, the term “casual games” appeared much later, in February 2000.
Nowadays casual games are not only a pleasant pastime, but the rapidly rising industry. Since 2002 many companies engaged in casual games industry have appeared.
So, you are welcome to join their adepts and become an ace casual gamer!
