One Button Games Rated PEGI 7 and Older

The games here can be played with a single button. Although ranging in difficulty they are a good place to start for those needing simpler controls.

It should be noted that many of these games need to be started with more than one button. Some are played by tapping at a fixed point on a touchscreen. We haven't included games that require a motioned-touch.

For those needing alternative access there are many possibilities with an accessibility switch. These "switches" come in many shapes and sizes including jumbo buttons, super-sensitive finger switches and sound sensors. In some cases, the spacebar or a Bluetooth keyboard can work just fine. If the player can activate the control and if it can be connected to the games machine, then one-button play becomes a possibility.

This list was compiled with the help of Barrie Ellis, who runs One Switch. On that site you can find equipment to enable a far wider range of games to be played by accessibility switch users. OneSwitch also supports a range of other accessible gaming solutions.

This list includes 5 games from the last 13 years, with 17 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play with one button.
