People say the sure-fire way to say adios to ennui is video games. Most of us heartily agree with this assessment. They are also considered as a great inspiration to creativity. So, when you are sitting at your office desk and bored to tears, what do you do? You open up a browser game. Yep, that’s right instead of parking that backside on a chair and staring at a wall for inspiration to strike, take a breather. Rounded up here are three browser games that one can play for free.
These games are generally HTML-5 based, and all they require is a good browser like Chrome. If they need Flash, then hey, the finest games are worth it, right? We bet that by the time you are done playing these games, you will be addicting. Thoughts like ‘when the source of entertainment lives right in your browser, then who needs an Xbox’ will be floating around the head. Well, the games are not that miraculous, but will definitely make you miss that very important deadline.
- A Dark Room
This game was developed by the same people as Gridland. The basis of the game is to survive and then thrive, but the path to it is very, very unique. The task is to create and then maintain a flourishing community in the midst of a rugged wilderness. The quest is text and menu driven. The game can take a long time to advance, as one has to survive not only attacks from hostile animals but also tackle issues like supply management and logistics. The good news? A player can save the game at its current progress on the browser and work on it at any other time!
- Cube Slam
Not looking for a game that requires too much brainpower? Sophistication is not your thing when it comes to browser games? Then Cube Slam is the game you want. To describe it simply, Cube Slam is a game of Pong with bears as the opponent. The goal of the browser game is to get the ball past the other player. At first, it is the 3D animation of the playfield that charms the eye along with the very realistic sound effects. Later, it is the chance of playing it online against friends, colleague or strangers that hooks you. The fun game has webcam support so; one can actually see the opponent they are up against.
- 10 Bullets
As the name suggests, the player has just 10 projectiles to destroy as many spacecrafts as possible. For gamers who love a button mash game, this one is for you with just a slight twist. The trick to it is to start a chain reaction. Kill one ship while aiming for the others with the debris of the first. A bit of practice and one can learn to clear the complete squadron of spacecraft with just a single projectile.
Was it mentioned that all of three of the browser games are free? Putting it out there again, just by any chance we forgot.
