free games

It’s time to quit out of iWork, SublimeText, or Photoshop, and take a well-deserved break. Today we are going over some fun and simple quick-fix games that will allow you to reset your brain and get back to work with a fresh mindset. These games are meant to give you a few minutes of distraction while you take a break, wait for a movie to render, wait for an important business call, or if you just happen to want some brief gaming time.

With that said, if you happen to be a gamer who enjoys simple yet addictive games, you may want to take a look at this list. In it, you will find quite a few games that are worth your time. Some of them are free, too, so you won’t even have to spend a dime.


When you’ve been working hard, it’s always great to take a break. Some like to check Facebook, others like to read a real book. I’m a big fan of playing a quick game of some sort. Usually, I play a game on my iPhone. It’s fast, the games load in no time and there are tons and tons of games that are really easy to only play for 5 minutes at a time. Lately, however, I’ve been leaving my phone in a different room or turning it off so I’m not distracted by calls when I need to work. As a result, I decided it was high time I found some games for my Mac that are worthwhile to play for just 5 minutes at a time.

During my search for games, I had a few requirements for each of the games. They had to boot quickly, be entertaining, easy to pick up and to put down, and I wanted free games. I’ve put together a collection of 15 of my favorites (although there were at least 15 more that I thought about including). These games meet all of my requirements, and while they’re not always the most attractive games, they’re free and generally addicting. Read on for a few classics and several games you’ve probably never played.
