5 Fun Web Games

There are tons of ways to waste time on the internet and free web games are quickly becoming my favorite.

I’ve listed out 5 games below. All are free, simple and addicting. There are no complex rules, no user registration, no downloads or anything like that. Just fun!

In no particular order, here are 5 cool web games that are worth checking out.

Boomshine – Probably my favorite. This little game is so simple, you just place one expanding dot on the page and as it interacts with others, they then too expand and interact with even more. Each level has a certain amount of that you need to interact with before advancing. They say less than 4% actually make it though level 12. My wife and I are in that 4% though. 🙂

Shuffle – Kind of like shuffle board, kind of like lawn bowling. You need to knock your opponents balls off the table. Last one standing wins the round.

A Very Simple Game – In this one, all you have to do is click on the dot. Some dots are easy to spot, some are much harder. I have beat the game, but it takes some good investigative skills to find those dots.

NANACA†CRASH – Interesting game that I don’t quite understand, but do enjoy. You hurl your guy into the air and if he hits the right ladies, he’ll fly even farther. Tip: When loosing momentum, click on one of the ladies in the upper right corner. If you play the game right, you guy can fly for five minutes or more.

Cat with Bow Golf – A little more skill is needed in this one, but you just pull back on your bow and arrow, aim and launch your cat towards the target. Like golf, you only get so many shots before you start loosing points for the hole/target.

Do you have other web games that may fit with those above? If so, share them by posting them in the comments. I’m always looking for fun and addicting games.

    The online games are quickly becoming lots of fun… my favorite of all time is On the Run. I car chase where you are being chased by invincible trucks. Action packed, and very hard.

    Gamma Bros. is a fun too. Space shooter with lots of levels. Very addicting and challenging.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Sad part about that one is you have to install an additional plugin to make it work.

    loved boomshine. especially the music accompanying it. so fitting the relaxed tone of the game. I think, however, the 4% you referenced was the number of level 12 games won out of the total level 12 games played, not how many people win the last level. I myself played level 12 at least 15 times before winning once, so I can definitely vouch for the toughness of that level. I grew up on Tetris, so I really appreciate a list of simple yet compelling games.

    I have completed level 12 a few times. It is a tough level but mighty addicting!

    Took me 10 minutes to beat Boomshine. Wish it had a harder level.

  7. Thomas says:

    Boomshine is different every time. Try it again and see how long it takes you. 🙂

    Just beat Boomshine! for the first time ever – and would you believe it only took about 5 goes! I usually give up around the 50-odd time…

    Cheers!

    A very simple game was pretty easy. But the white level gave me a few challenges.

    Hi,
    Great games, thank you!
    I have 2 suggestions to add to the list:

    1. Factory Balls – took me a few minutes to figure out what to do, but it’s worth the effort! I can’t stop paying this game!

    2. Free Games & Programs – New title every day
    (this are current apps that are NOT usually free, find some really good deals here)

    so… whats wrong with googling “flash games” and getting 100s of 1000s good games instead of just linking 5?

  12. Thomas says:

    anon – Becaues Google will show you lots of crap games and you’ll have to filter though them all. I just made it a bit easier to find a few good ones.

  13. Malinda says:

    I need help on the red level please!!!

  14. Malinda says:
