I spend a lot of time using a microscope which is attached to a Windows XP computer. This involves bursts of activity and 3-10 minute waits whilst the 'scope does its stuff. Whilst I could spend the time reading and learning and improving my brain, I want to play games instead. I'm bored of Freecell and Solitaire, so what can you suggest that matches these criteria:
Not an action game (I have to be able to break off to do my work without losing a life).
Mouse input not keyboard.
Sound not essential for gameplay.
Can provide entertainment to a tired and unhappy person for hours at a time.
Nothing installed on computer (cookies are fine).
Works on Internet Explorer
I'm thinking a point-and-click Rogue/Nethack type thing, or a god-sim or turn-based-strategy or RPG or something, as those are the games I've tended to enjoy offline, but will try most things. I have already exhausted the fun to be had in the 'Grow' series!
