If you’re looking to kill some time but don’t want to waste money or computer storage, a browser game is your best bet. As their name suggests, these games can be played online without the need to download any files. In this list we share 10 browser games from a handful of different categories:
Agario is the best in a series of games where the main objective is to gain mass until you are the biggest cell in the lobby. There is the option to play by yourself in ‘free for all’ mode or with your friends in the multiplayer arena. You can also customize your cell with a variety of unlockable skins.
One of my favourites on this list is Bloons Tower Defense. At the time of writing this, there are 5 editions of this game but the developers are consistently adding things such as new towers, power ups and levels. If you’re a fan of tower defense games, this one is definitely for you, just make sure you register an account so that all of your progress is saved!
Line Rider is perfect if you just want to hop online and play for a couple of minutes between tasks. There are many different tracks you can choose from – some can be finished in a couple of minutes while others require a bit more time. An interesting aspect to this game is that all tracks are created by users.
8 Ball Pool gained popularity through being a free mobile application, leading many people to the online game which was released at the same time. Play against a computer, or with a friend by sharing your unique match ID with them.
A classic game that has truly stood the test of time. Tetris is about carefully orientating blocks so that they fit within the structure you’ve already built – As soon as a block hits the top of your area, the game is over. Rows are removed when they have been completely filled.
If you have played ‘Prop Hunt’ before, you will grasp the concept of this game in no time at all. As a prop, you need to choose a suitable disguise and position yourself somewhere that does not appear to be out of place. As a hunter… well, your aim is to hunt down the props and eliminate them from the lobby.
Highly addictive and the only idle game on this list (Progress can still be made without user interaction). The aim of the game is to make as many cookies as possible, building up an empire and upgrading your facilities. Leave this game open in a tab and make progress whenever you have a spare minute.
A simple 3D racing game which has a rating of over 9/10 over on CrazyGames. Featuring realistic graphics and simple controls, Derby Crash definitely makes a claim to being one of the best free online games in the racing category.
You’ve probably seen one of your favourite Youtubers play Google Feud at some point. The game gives you the start of a Google search term, you then have to make guesses at what the final part could be. There are 10 answers in total – A few of the answers for each round tend to be quite bizarre though, so thinking outside the box is key!
Before becoming a tower defense giant, Bloons had an original game that featured a dart monkey trying to pop all (or most of) the balloons throughout certain levels. There are special ‘power up’ blocks that can be used to enhance your popping capability.
