My Oasis: Anxiety Relief Game uses mindfulness to aid users with their stress and anxiety. The user is given a small oasis in which they can populate with animals and power-ups. By tapping the screen in a clicker fashion, My Oasis plays music and unlocks content so they can upgrade their “oasis” and bring in more calming visuals, such as adding a variety of animal life to their virtual space. As the user progresses through the levels, they can acquire a larger oasis, more animals, and power-ups by spending more time tapping and partaking in their relaxation games. My Oasis is a free-to-play game, but also provides users the opportunity to unlock more content quickly by watching advertisements or through in-app purchases.
