The 5 Best Free Online Browser Games To Kill Hours Of Time.
When you just can’t stand to look at this project for a minute and need a break, where do you turn? What do you do when work is idle and there is nothing to devote to? The answer is simple – browser games.
There are thousands of games on the Internet that run entirely in a browser, but not all of them are fun to play. In fact, some of them are just awful – but fear not. We’ve listed some of the best titles to help kill a few minutes of your time or get you nicely distracted when you need a break.
Candy squeeze game
Cookie Clicker is a simple game with an incredibly addictive formula. The goal is to make as many cookies as possible. Creating your first cookie is as easy as clicking on it. Then again and again.
After you click fifteen times, you can spend your cookies on a “cursor” – a bonus that automatically clicks for you every ten seconds. Hundreds of cookies allow you to hire a grandma to bake them for you, which will produce one cookie per second.
The game continues in this vein, allowing you to invest in more powerful production facilities and improve the productivity of your individual cookie makers.
Best of all, it runs in the background. You can leave Cookie Clicker enabled in a separate tab and check it throughout the day. You can even save the game and continue later. Achievements and an insane upgrade tree will keep you playing for hours on end.
Abobo’s Big Adventure
If you miss the days of classic 8-bit adventure games, Abobo’s Big Adventure is for you. It’s a simple beat-em-up game with a classic soundtrack and simple mechanics.
You use the A and S keys to kick and punch, and the arrow keys to move around the screen. Enemies attack you and you hit them until their health bar (which is displayed in the lower right corner of the screen after you hit someone) drops to zero.
The game is full of classic references. You are fighting Goomb, Black and White Spies and even Donkey Kong. This is a complete game with added content if you go through the main story. This is a great homage to the classic beat-e-ups of yesteryear.
Line Rider is one of those classic games that most people have at least heard of, even if they’ve never played before. The whole idea of Ã¢â‚¬â€¹Ã¢â‚¬â€¹the game is simple: you build a track along which a person in a sleigh will ride.
Line Rider is completely physics-based, so steeper slopes mean more speed and gentle slopes and climbs can be used to control speed. You build a track and then click the Play button below to see how your rider behaves.
If a track doesn’t work just right, you can stop playing, erase sections, and make changes. Feel free to try jumps and loops, but make sure you have enough speed to complete them! The last thing you need is for your character to crash and burn.
Note: This game is best played with the mouse as drawing correct lines with the touchpad is not fun.
Threes is a puzzle game with a lot of inspiration from the beloved year 2048. This game is easy to play but incredibly difficult to master.
You start out with a random set of tiles that you move with the arrow keys. The trick is to combine these tiles. Tile “1” will only merge with tile “2” to get “3”. Any tile with the number “3” and above can only be combined with a double.
This means that you need to connect the “3” tiles together to get the “6”, and then connect the two “6” tiles to get the “12”. When there are only 16 empty spaces on the board, this can quickly become difficult. You can see the upcoming tile, which means there is a strategy element here.
Threes are a great way to challenge yourself and train your brain – and even more useful when you need to solve a problem in an ongoing project, but you want something to distract you while your subconscious is drawing conclusions.
Agario is a PVP game that only uses your mouse. You start out with a small circle and have to cross the screen, eating circles smaller than you and growing in size.
Other players do the same. If the larger player bumps into you, he will eat you and the game is over. On the other hand, if you can grow to a large enough size without being absorbed by another player, you have a huge advantage. The larger the circles, the larger you get.
It’s a fun and deceivingly challenging game. Agario’s only danger is that you can set your own usernames, so you might encounter NSFW content if you play on your school or work computer.
