Casual games usually have simpler mechanics, being accessible to players looking for a hobby, but without too much effort. That doesn’t mean, however, that they’re necessarily easy or challenging. Games like Friday Night Funkin’, Fruit Ninja and Geometry Dash World are examples of the opposite: they require good reflexes and quick reactions from the users to add points or simply to dodge the obstacles on the screen. Below, check out the list of TechAll with more details on these and other similar titles for desktop, console and mobile devices.

In Fruit Ninja (2012), by Halfbrick Studios, the idea is to slice as many fruits as you can, like a real ninja. The longer you hold on without fail, the faster the game becomes. Cutting them simultaneously, on the other hand, guarantees a bonus to the final score. It is worth mentioning that it also has an arcade mode, where you have to score as much as possible until time runs out. The game is available for Android and iPhone (iOS) smartphones, as well as Xbox One, with Kinect.

Developed by Kumobius, Duet (2015) is a simple yet highly challenging game, where the user controls a circle with two colored balls that cannot touch the pieces that suddenly appear on the way. Each time you tap the screen, the direction the balls rotate is reversed, allowing you to dodge obstacles. The distance between them, however, shortens as you pass 40 levels. The game can be downloaded for PC, Mac and Linux (via Steam), as well as mobile devices with Android or iPhone (iOS).

Created by RobTop Games, Geometry Dash World (2016) is a platform game for Android and iPhone (iOS) that focuses on simplicity and very difficult scenarios. In it you control a small square being and help him jump through dangerous passages and sharp obstacles. Therefore, depending on the rhythm of the songs, impressive accuracy and response time are required. The big draw, however, is the ability to play levels created by other players.
