The first casual games were aimed at a wide range of users, they were characterized by simple rules, minimal time to get used to the game, it was not even necessary to delve into the intricacies of gameplay.

An example of a successful realization of a casual game is Solitaire, which was distributed with Windows. It had more than 400 million fans. No less popular was the computer version of Tetris.

One of the most famous producers of the best casual games in the domestic space is Alawar. Think back to when you were on a treasure hunt for Montezuma's treasure or farming. It is likely that you were also among the fans of Alawar.

Browser, casual and client online games

Casual games are still very much alive today. They moved online in the mid-90s. HTML5 multiplayer mini-games eventually superseded their Flash counterparts.
