    Heya, i am teaching my grandma how to use a computer, we are starting with using a mouse and as you can imagine, first time holding a computer mouse at 85 is no easy task. I am trying to find a simple online shooting game where you stand still and have to hit a set of stationary targets (yep, nothing moving yet) to win, this way she can practice moving a mouse and left clicking. If that target happens to be something funny, like a chicken, even better, we will have a great laugh (like we did the last time she was drawing in mspaint :)) ). I checked many such games online but sadly all of them are fast moving targets and that just wont do, she barely hits an icon on desktop as it is. I found some exercises for seniors but they are so dull, just terrible. I hope you can help with an advice, wish i had more time and i would make a simple game like that for her in unity, but sadly it is exam time :(

    Anything that works like Super Mario (platform jump & run games or something).

    DOOM. :p






    But yea like the above posters said women in general gravitate towards games we hate. Candy crush, solitare games, HOGs, etc. Some of the popcap games they might get into zuma etc. But definately start out with something like solitare windows even has a solitare built in.

    Crime solitare was pretty decent goofy and got old after awhile but might be worth a look.
