Addictive Online Flash Games
Looking for a way to kill time at work? Check out any of these ten online flash games. Beware, they may become addicting.
1. Desktop Tower Defense
The premise is simple. You must stop a set number of enemies, known as “creeps”, from reaching the other side of the board. This is accomplished by building and upgrading towers that shoot at, damage, or hinder the creeps before they are out of sight and off the board. Unlike many tower defense games the path of the creeps themselves is not set. Instead, they take the shortest path they can find to the exit, so build wisely.
So, you’re a monkey. And you have a number of darts. And you must throw the darts to pop the balloons. Each level you are given a certain number of darts and an objective number of balloons to pop. So get to it! Everyone loves to pop balloons.
The objective of this game is to swap one gem with an adjacent gem to form a horizontal or vertical chain of three or more gems. Bonus points are given when more than three identical gems are formed or forms two lines of identical gems in one swap. Gems disappear when chains are formed and gems fall from the top to fill in gaps. Sometimes chain reactions, called cascades, are triggered, where chains are formed by the falling gems. Cascades are awarded with bonus points.
4. Double Wires
Your not entirely coordinated hero has two wires that act much like Spiderman’s web shooters, clinging to surfaces like a grappeling hook so he can swing from them. Swing your stick man to move him forward as fast an far as you can. Just don’t fall off the map.
Here you have the honor of blasting zombies, at least until they eat your brains. Who doesn’t want to take point blank shots at people?
A shooter game that’s as fun to play as it is easy to learn. You play the role of a mercenary robot hired to investigate and eradicate the hostile forces that have taken over Titan Prime, a space station orbiting Mars.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to destroy the totems without letting the golden Idol fall on to the ground. A lesson in physics, you use balance and quickness to keep the idol above ground.
You start with a laser, or even more than one. The objective of the game is to position the mirrors and lenses provided such that the laser passes through and illuminates each of the light bulbs, but don’t let the laser hit any bombs. More of a thinking man’s game, at least you’ll feel smart when you accomplish a level.
9. Dice Wars
This game is basically a poor man’s risk. Each territory has a certain amount of dice in it, and you roll dice to take over adjacent territories. The number of dice rolled is determined by the number present in the territoy. At the end of each turn, you get bonus dice for the number of territories held.
Defy the laws of time and space with your portal gun. You’ll need to rethink physics to beat this challenge, as you enter one portal and fall out another one some where across the room. Use the gun so you can get to the other door and exit.
