Er zijn diverse omschrijvingen te vinden van Casual games:

A casual game is a video game targeted at a mass audience of casual gamers. Casual games can have any type of gameplay, and fit in any genre. They are typically distinguished by their simple rules, in contrast to more complex hardcore games. They require no long-term time commitment or special skills to play, and there are comparatively low production and distribution costs for the producer. Casual games typically are played on a personal computer online in web browsers, although they now are starting to become popular on game consoles, too. Casual gaming demographics also vary greatly from those of traditional computer games, as the typical casual gamer is older and more predominantly female, with over 74% of those purchasing casual games being women.

Most casual games have similar basic features:

   * Extremely simple gameplay, like a puzzle game that can be played entirely using a one-button mouse or cellphone keypad
   * Allowing gameplay in short bursts, during work breaks or, in the case of portable and cell phone games, on public transportation
   * The ability to quickly reach a final stage, or continuous play with no need to save the game
   * 2D, abstract graphics
   * Some variant on a "try before you buy" business model or an advertising-based model
  • Rohrl (2009):
Casual games are video games developed for the mass consumer, even those who would not normally regard themselves as a ‘gamer.’
  • Casual games are played by everyone, from children to grandmothers, and professional bankers
  • Casual games are played everywhere, from online portals to consoles and cell phones
  • They come in all shapes and sizes

Developed for the general public and families, casual games are video games that are fun and easy to learn and play. The games are platform agnostic, meaning they can be played via the Internet, PC and Macintosh computers, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo DS, Wii and even mobile phones and PDA. They’re nonviolent, arcade-style games that involve puzzles, words, board and card games, game show and trivia. Popular games are Mahjong, Tetris, Solitaire, Bejeweled, Cake Mania, Mystery Case Files, and Luxor.

Casual games in many cases are made by small indie game developers and qualify as indie games. Casual games are defined by simple rule sets and appeal to a wide mass audience. Typical casual game genres include: match-3, time management, seek & find, puzzle, etc. Indie games are often times casual games, but casual games are not necessarily indie.
