Many children absolutely hate the doctor’s office, the grocery store, car rides and so on. Basically, if they have to sit and wait for any period of time, they absolutely hate it. You definitely need to look out for I look into activities that are capable of keeping the kids entertained. This is where mobile games come in. In this article, I will be reviewing a list of the 10 Best Find the Difference Games.
I started to look into it a little bit and began doing some preliminary googling to see if there was anything that really stood out to me online. Most of the things I saw on Google were things I had already tried. But then, I came across this website with the best find the difference games and I thought I’d at least look into them a bit. I loved playing I Spy as a kid. You can get the full list from the website below:

I’m so glad I did because the games turned out to be really cool. So much so, that I decided to select a few of them and test them out on some kids to see if they would be worth using to keep the little ones distracted for a little while. Turns out, it worked like a charm! That’s why I’ve decided to include the three apps below in my very own app review in order to share my good fortune with you.
Find the Difference 200 levels – Rating: 4.6, Downloads: 1M
This is such a good game because it seems to enthral the kids with its gorgeous HD images. Their little eyes get far less tired staring at the screen because everything is so clean and concise (rather than grainy). There’s also a zoom feature so they can get a better view of smaller details on more than 200 levels. I love this app because it means I can count on at least an hour of quiet time.

The only odd thing I do want to point out about this app is that the levels with 5 differences (to spot) don’t seem to work. I don’t know if it’s a loading issue or what, but my kids aren’t able to solve those levels.
Pros: HD graphics, more than 200 levels, zoom feature to take a closer look
Cons: Levels with 5 differences seem to be broken
Overall: As long as you and/or your kids don’t mind skipping over the 5-difference levels, you’ll love how many opportunities this game offers to test your observations skills
What’s the Difference? – Rating: 4.6, Downloads: 1M
If you’re someone who seriously hates stumbling across the same images more than once, then you’re going to really like this game. What’s the Difference? offers new challenges every time you play (yes, every time!) with hundreds of free levels that you can play back-to-back. This is actually one I’ve come to play myself, though kids love it too.
The games are set up a bit oddly in terms of the “start over” point if you screw up a puzzle. For example, if you’re playing puzzle 48 and lose, you’ll have to start the “block” of puzzles again from puzzle number 40. I don’t particularly understand this functionality, so it does annoy me a bit, but definitely not enough to stop playing.
Pros: Hundreds of levels, free, good for kids and adults
Cons: You have to start over from the beginning of a puzzle group if you get a puzzle wrong
Overall: As long as you don’t mind starting over every once in a while, you’ll really enjoy how many options this app offers
Find the Difference Fairytale Games – Rating: 4.4, Downloads: 100K
kids cherish nothing more than to pretend to escape to a completely different world. Fantasy and imagination are really important to them, so I knew before I even showed them this app, that a world filled with fantasy and stunning nature would be right up their alley. If you or your kids are fans of creating and exploring fantasy worlds, then I think you’ll find that you get a lot of satisfaction from this Find the Difference game.
However, many kids have run into an issue with levels loading incorrectly in the past. It doesn’t happen frequently with this app, but there have been times when I couldn’t get a level to load when the kids wanted to play it. A bummer, for sure, and the kids were disappointed, but they just moved on to a different level and forgot about it.
Pros: Great for kids who like to explore their imagination
Cons: Occasional issues with loading levels
Overall: As long as your kids are flexible and don’t mind moving to a different level if a problem should arise, they’ll love the unique take on Find the Difference games this app offers
After I found these apps for the kids, my observation is that they’re now so much better behaved when we’re out running errands. Instead of wondering how much longer we’re going to be at a location, my son will simply ask if he can play the “Finder” games and that’s that. It’s easy, convenient, and a win-win in my book. I hope it will be the same for you!
