My 8 year old daughter is new to video games and is easily discouraged…i tried Overcooked and it was too frustrating…I thought she’d love Rayman Legends since she can simply die and re-spawn but she wasn’t into it…you recommended Jumpin’ Joe and and I grabbed it for 20 cents…she loves it..I think simple mobile like games might be her ‘jam’ at this point…any other recommendations for simple mobile like games?
