A capacity to think critically and find solutions to problems creatively is a trait that is useful in any industry. However, not everyone has this capacity, and, when they do, it isn’t as fully developed or as pronounced as they would like.
When this is the case, there are a few things you can do to remedy the situation. One method of approach you can take and get good results here is to play puzzle games. These can improve your thinking faculties drastically and help you become more adept at logical thinking.
Some fun puzzle games worth trying out include:
Game One – AngryMoji
This is a puzzle game with a unique premise. You are put in a position where you have to find creative solutions to difficult problems at each stage.
It starts as a sort of variation on the classic pinball game. However, where it differs considerably is that the path to clearing your pins is often blocked by an obstacle. Due to this, you have to find a way around these objects and drop your target.
Depending on the scenario, you have two options; you can either strategically find a way around it or simply power through it, and drop the designated target.
It is fun, incredibly engaging and might be just the right tool that your kid needs to further bolster their problem-solving skills. The best thing about this game is that it comes with a lot of levels so your child ward has enough material to be productively engaged for a long time!
Game Two – Filled Glass 3: Portals
This game takes problem-solving to the next level. To play it and get the most out of the game, your kid needs to be aware of four crucial features.
These include the two whirring holes, the glass the bottom you have to fill, the blocks you have to bypass, and the touching area where you press to release the small balls you need to achieve this.
You need to strategize and plan such that when you press the touching area, the small balls released to pass through the two whirring holes and do not fall into any other place but the glass at the bottom of your screen.
If you are not able to do this and the balls don’t fall into the glass, you lose a life, and the game restarts. However, if you are able to successfully complete the mission and fill the glass, you can proceed to the next stage.
Game Three – Cut the Rope
The last game on this list is Cut the Rope. Perfectly suited for boys and girls at and above the age of 9 this game has several elements that help your ward increase their intelligence quotient without putting too much stress on them.
Just as the name of the game suggests, you need to find the most appropriate location to cut a series of ropes so you can complete the mission objective.
It’s the perfect game for your child to pass the time.
