Apple TV Games to Help You Unwind After a Long Day

Apple TV Games to Help You Unwind After a Long Day

After a long day of hustle and bustle at the office, school, or wherever, gaming can be a great way to help unwind. Here is a list of fun and immersive experiences on the Apple TV that should help you rest, relax, and recharge for a new day.

Shadowmatic

Find silhouettes in shadows

Shadowmatic
Spin To Create A Shadow

For those who like new puzzle ideas, and shadow puppets.

Shadowmatic is one of the best you can grab so far this year. I am in love with the pragmatic visuals, the exclusive environments, ambient tunes, and simple controls. The progress bar works well in telling me if I’m close to solving it, though at times it just feels like I’m randomly spinning it around to light up the dots.

Why we love it

If you're looking for a game that is special and relaxing, Shadowmatic is for you. The shadows are sharp and contrast well with the rest of the surroundings, and it’s incredibly fun to watch the shadows morph into something new as you move the figures around. The animations are super smooth and the soundtrack is a joy to listen to, best experienced with a good pair of headphones.

For those who...

  • Like challenging puzzle games
  • Are looking for something different

Not for those who...

  • Like high-speed adventures
  • Like a lot of noise

Why we love it

The graphics in Lumino City are stunning. A big reason behind this is the fact that everything that you see in the game was created by hand out of real-world materials. The entire game is based off of a real life model city that the developers created from scratch, and the results have paid off.

Percepto
Percepto

For those who like logic based puzzle games.

Percepto is a puzzle game based on your perception of a room that alternates between two and three dimensions. So while the room may look 2-D or 3-D at times, you may have to think in the opposite dimension in order to solve the puzzle. You'll have to rotate between views in order to line up your character with the door, avoiding obstacles like moving blocks and stairs. Once you get Bruce to the door, he shouts out a cheerful "Woo hoo" to encourage you. It's a unique approach to puzzles and definitely worth checking out if you liked games such as Monument Valley and Fez.

Percepto is intensely challenging, and offers puzzle fans something they can sink their teeth into. It features great, even if simple, graphics and an impressive user interface. The controls are intuitive and easy to learn, but the game still offers plenty of challenge in its game play.
