More Android Puzzle Apps and Games – For Adults Clients

A comment from Sandy asked about Android puzzle apps and what might be suited for adults with head injuries. Although this is not my area of expertise, I did a search in the Android app market to see if there were more puzzles with appropriate content for adults with varying number of pieces to grade the task for an adult client. Here are some puzzles that I thought would work for adult clients:

  Horses: Jigsaw Puzzles For Kids and Adults (free). For ages 9 and up.

  Spectrum Puzzles
(1.49). Has puzzles of different levels of difficulty ranging from 20 pieces (small) to 48 pieces (huge). More puzzles are available with add on app purchases.

Ultimate Jigsaw Puzzle HD (2.49) – Puzzle with piece numbers ranging from 9 to 81.

Other game apps for Android devices may also foster problem solving, maintained attention and work on perceptual skills such as Connect 4, Mahjong (there are a lot of Mahjong games which requires scanning, visual memory and visual discrimination skills), and memory games that would be very suited to young and old. Here are a few apps that I found that I believe would work on cognitive skills that are listed for Android:

  Mahjong Words (.99) – A mahjong game of matching words.

  Fantastic 4 in a Row HD  (.99) – A classic game of connect four.

 Memory Game for All – Pro (.99)- Visual matching game.

Word Search (free) – Word search app for your Android.

Sandy, Hope this helps!
