Games for Girls – Top Picks

The number of women enjoying gaming apps is rising, a fact that game designers are keen to exploit by channelling their creative energies into devising apps focused solely on the female gaming market. Here we look at some of the best female-focused games available at the moment, some of which may actually take you by surprise.


Guild Wars 2

Forget the sexist notion that women’s games can only feature flowers, candy or other such frivolities, and focus your attention on the epic game play of Guild Wars 2. A game focused on community allegiance, with players completing tasks to defeat a formidable foe, this offers an exhilarating and satisfying experience. One moment you will be marvelling at exquisite graphics, and the next you will be thrust into the chaos of an almighty battle as the people of Tyria work together to vanquish towering fire-throwing monsters and rampaging centaurs. The varied quests and sense of not knowing what battle you may face next makes this a must-have game for those who adore becoming completely immersed in a world of fantasy game-play.

Lady Lucks Kitty Glitter

There’s no getting away from it: some women do love glittery things and small furry animals, and if you do, then Kitty Glitter from Lady Lucks is the game for you. If you are searching for a low-maintenance game to enjoy during your downtime, it matches the description perfectly. One of the great things about this game is that, in conjunction with being an enjoyable way to spend a little free time, it also offers you the opportunity to win some cash.

7 Little Words

Should you be looking for a game that will get those cerebral cogs turning, have a look at 7 Little Words. Described as being a “crossword puzzle, anagram and word finding game all rolled into one”, you’ll feel like a right little brain box after completing a few of these puzzles. Each puzzle contains 7 mystery words, 7 clues and 20 letter groups which will eventually need to be combined to create larger words. As well as being thoroughly enjoyable, 7 Little Words provides a fun way to fit in some brain training whenever you get the opportunity.


This game has a simple concept: gamers must add tiles of the same value until they arrive at a tile of the value, 2048. Now, I understand this may sound inane, but believe me, once you start playing this game, you will be hooked; determined to reach the target.

I am sure you will be able to discover a few great games of your own, but these top picks really do need to be experienced, and if nothing else, I hope via these recommendations, help you to realise that there really are more female-orientated games out there than just Candy Crush.
