  1. Might try some of these if I can stop playing “World of Goo” or “Hay Day” long enough to branch out. I get enough stress from real life so I prefer the simple no time limit games, the mental break time waster kind with challenges other than a frantic quest to stay alive.

    1. Mars is fantastic, definitely try it if you haven’t. Paper I use every day, it’s pretty much replacing Notability for me since I was using that mainly for freehand writing and not typing anyway. It’s kind of the AI Writer for artists 🙂
