Why we love this
  1. 1Stealth enthusiasts will delight in this action game’s thoughtful, tactical combat
  2. 2All 20 missions – telling the story of a Wild West-style adventure set in outer space – are free
  3. 3Customize your play style with over 70 weapons, from high-tech energy guns to throwing axes
You’ll find your favourite style of stealth here – whether it’s creating distractions with a flashbang, hacking an enemy turret, or pulling off a stranglehold from behind. If you die while offline, you’ll need to endure a 15-second wait to respawn – to prevent the delay, we recommend upgrading to premium.

Why we love this
  1. 1Test your perception of colour in this tile-swapping puzzle game
  2. 2With a minimal aesthetic and no need for dexterity or timing skills, Hue is gaming zen
  3. 3The challenge increases surprisingly quickly – making it to the hexagonal levels is an achievement!
In distressing times without internet, you won’t find a game more relaxing than this. The pastel rainbow palettes are endlessly pleasing to the eye, while sparse text and sound make it easy to unwind. It can take hours to replenish the “prisms” required to play each level, so we suggest stocking up beforehand if you anticipate being offline for a while.

Why we love this
  1. 1Loosely based on Jules Verne’s “Around the World in Eighty Days,” this text-driven game boasts excellent replay value
  2. 2Traverse the globe and meet all sorts of strange, nuanced characters
  3. 3Clean, simple graphics and superb writing convey an extraordinary steampunk world
You can’t trawl the web when your internet’s down – but you can travel the world instead with this interactive fiction game. Mechanical birds and submersible trains will take you places as far as Timbuktu or the Arctic. Countless routes mean you can play again and again, and still discover new cities and storylines.
