Top Five Online Browser Games
Got only a few minutes on your hands and want to play a game? This is why I have put together this list of free online games which you can really get stuck into whether it be for a few minutes or a few hours.
So you’ve got a couple of minutes free on your hands and you don’t know what to do. You don’t really think that you have the time to play a full-blown level of Doom 3. I’ve been in this situation many times so I’ve been looking a LOT for some free, no-hassle online games. I wanted to find some fun games which at the same time had the accessibility of a simple web browser. I made some good finds, and I will list them (in no particular order) and write a small description of each game.
First up is
. This is the prequel to Adventure Quest where you control a character in a fictional world involving the usual demons, goblins, etc. As you kill more monsters you level up and gain more gold to buy more weapons. It’s basically the same gameplay of older RPG’s. This is a single player game so you won’t be pawning any noobs here, but it’s still a fun way to kill some time. I’ve played this game from as little as 5 minutes to almost 3 hours. The game is free, but you have the option of paying for additional features. The game is in development so it is constantly changing.
My personal rating: 5/10 (decent)
. Adventure Quest is made by the same company and is the sequel to Dragonfable and it is single player. It was made earlier however, with Dragonfable being made after. Having been in development for longer than Dragonfable, Adventure Quest has a LOT more content, but at the same time feels sort of… older (as it should). Regardless, I prefer Adventure Quest to Dragonfable because it has much more content and requires less mindless grinding. Like Dragonfable you have the option of paying for additional features.
My personal rating: 6/10 (good)
. I’m sure almost everyone has heard of this multiplayer RPG. Notorious for having supposedly bad graphics (mind you, for a game based in Java they are actually pretty good) and a lot of grinding. Regardless, Runescape has given me plenty of hours of fun and if you’re not careful, this game will eat into your time like crazy. The game is set in a medieval sort of world involving dragons, demons etc. You have the option of taking quests to earn gold and other rewards. I suppose one of the reasons why it is so successful is because it is so accessible and getting started is so easy. You have the option to pay for additional features which is definitely something worth considering because there is so much to offer for paying members. It’s still provides many hours of gameplay for the free to play players.
My personal rating: 9/10 (excellent)
is a nice change from the others because it is a fast paced action game. Players are stick figures whose basic goal include well… killing one another. The aim is to accumulate a large number of kills on your account and ascend up the ranks over time. If you only have a few minutes then you can use a quick play option and sign in as a guest. An expansion pack is currently in the making which provides a lot more content to the game including weapons and maps. Unfortunately, as of yet the game is full of hackers who use programs to cheat their way to victory in a variety of ways including invulnerability, super speed, etc. Regardless, once you get a good game going it’s great fun. Stick Arena is free to play indefinitely.
My personal rating: 7.5/10 (very good)
Lastly is Robot Rage which is played via the Miniclip website. Robot Rage is where you build a robot and challenge others to a fight on the rooftop of death. Earn credits by winning battles and use those credits to buy upgrades for your robot. Robot Rage can be somewhat difficult to play if you don’t live in the US or UK because you will get very bad lag. Robot Rage is free to play but you can pay for additional weapons and whatnot. You can customize your robot in a huge number of ways so there’s always something to do. In my opinion, it would be much better if they fixed the buggy interface, but don’t let that put you off, Robot Rage is a respectable game in itself.
My personal rating: 6/10 (good)
And there you have it. That should keep you busy for long enough. 5 games which are playable online and easily accessible. Have fun.
