But what happens when you need a break from the heat or the long evenings start to drag? Well, we’re glad you asked because there’s no better accompaniment to the sunshine than a great summer-themed video game.
Summer and Video Games: A Perfect Match
Summer is the season to get outside and enjoy the weather. After going out though, there’s something special about kicking back after a hot day and playing some summer games that you just can’t beat.
Some of the best gaming memories are made when all of your friends are off from school, everyone is free and you can just hop online for some unrestricted gaming action. Endless hours sunk into Minecraft or a sprawling open-world RPG come guilt-free when no one can tell you there’s homework to do or school tomorrow.
Of course, summer is also the time that game developers, whether that’s indie studios or large companies like Bethesda, come together to showcase their upcoming releases. In the space of around two weeks, Summer Games Fest,E3, and various studio-specific events take place to build hype and excitement amongst gamers for the year ahead.
Overall, summer truly is the season of gaming. With the excitement of new games and weeks of free time ahead in mind, we’ve gathered a list of the best summer games on Coolmath to get you in the mood for a long, hot summer!

2. Tiny Fishing
Now, this one is addictive. Tiny Fishing seems simple on the surface but once you dive in, it turns out to have quite a lot of depth. At first, you’ll only be catching small fish that will give you small returns in exchange. However, Tiny Fishing is all about how you invest your earnings in yourself.
Spend your cash wisely and you’ll soon be dropping a line into deeper waters and hauling the catch of the day. If you’re really on the ball you can spend coins to catch fish in idle mode, when you’re not even playing the game, to maximize your progress.
If you had dreams of being out on the lakes at summer camp this year then Tiny Fishing is the idle game that will transport you there. Learn more about it in our blog all about how to play Tiny Fishing.
