Here are an assortment of cross-platform game apps that are available for both iOS iPhones & iPads as well as Android devices. All apps are free or have low prices of $2 or less. Most of the free apps contain ads, so the premium versions are recommended for those who may feel further stressed or distracted by pop-ups during play.
The focus this time are on apps that have a bit more challenging game play to maintain the player's focus, provide a bit of distraction from other worries, or allow the user to vent a bit of frustration in their interactions with the games. While the atmosphere of these games are still overall calming, they can be based on matching rhythms & beats, included timed segments or other challenges, have puzzles that are more mentally stimulating, or require a bit of specifically timed interaction.
