Alto's Adventure and the next episode Alto's Odyssé are really beautiful games (I have a preference for the soundtrack of Alto's Adventure however). When you hit the Zen mode and have a headphone... It's kind of magic. I don't know how it is on App Store but on Android Alto's isn't commercial but freemium.

I sincerely would not call Limbo, INSIDE, This War of Mine and Lifeline relaxing, having played all of them. Limbo's challenging, especially if you're going for full completion. INSIDE is a wonderful game, but set in bleak, depressing and, some times, disturbing dystopia. This War of Mine is angst-y and involves too much survival and sad subplots. Lifeline conveys the feeling that it requires some kind of urgency, gets your heart pumping.

Overall: just don't play games before you sleep... haha

Not listed but I highly recommend: Viridi icon Viridi
