10. Robot Unicorn Attack Evolution
The ultimate in free campy classics, Adult Swim’s Robot Unicorn Attack has undeniable charm hidden beneath its glittery exterior. Sporting a barrage of bright colors and fast jumping, the game challenges your endurance with an endless journey across the sky as you guide the eponymous Robot Unicorn through clouds and over rainbows.
9. Desktop Tower Defense
Protect your desktop with this addictive defense game. As swarms of cartoonish shapes wiggle across your screen, you must build towers to shoot and destroy them before they can escape. The more you destroy, the more towers can build. A destop classic.
8. Skid Racer
This simple game is great for pick-up-and-play racing. For novices and masters alike, Skid Racer offers easy, but engaging high-octane races. You can also use your prize money from winning races to further customize your car with all sorts of fun extras, if you’re looking to kill a little more time
7. Tofu Hunter
Sometimes, you just want to play something silly. Look no further than Tofu Hunter, a free Flash game where – you guessed it – you hunt blocks of tofu with a variety of weapons. If you enjoyed a certain optional, tofu-themed mini game in Resident Evil 2, you’ll probably love this.
6. Quake Live
Remember Quake III Arena? Of course you do. Just about every PC gamer was playing it at the turn of the century. And it’s available for your browser, absolutely free. In a world full of hyper-realistic shooters, you couldn’t find any better place for a loud, cartoony death match. It has all the explosions and stretched textures a gamer could ever want.
5. 10 Bullets
Tired of all the fast-paced shooters saturating the market nowadays? Probably not. But if you are, 10 Bullets will inject some sorely needed strategy into your FPS experience. As the title suggests, you only have ten bullets. With your limited amount of ammunition, you must take down as many targets as possible. With a little luck and some excellent aim, reach for chain reactions with your carefully timed shots.
4. Angry Birds
Everyone’s favorite mobile bird-slinging simulator is now available for Chrome. This charming puzzle game hides some true difficulty beneath its deceptively simple premise: shoot some round birds at some round pigs while trying to knock down some rectangular houses. Simple, but undeniably addictive.
3. FPS Man
When you stop to think about it, the 1980s hit Pac-Man can be a bit unsettling. You are a ravenous circle travelling through tight, dark corridors, devouring everything in your path before anything can devour you. The creative minds behind FPS Man seem to have realized this,and have created a more horror-focused take on the arcade classic where you must navigate a maze of deep, dark corridors before you are killed by one of several colorful ghosts. You’ll never look at Pac-Man the same way again.
2. The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
This 1984 classic is no longer limited to you dusty old Apple II. Based on the incredibly popular comedic science fiction series of the same name, this text-based adventure game quickly found an audience with its quirky, off-the-wall humor and brutal brainteasers. We recommend you read the original novels before you play, however, as the game contains several in-jokes and nods to the original series for fans to enjoy.
1. Full Screen Mario
The Mario games didn’t become a gaming staple for no reason. We all fell in love with that chubby plumber as he ate mushrooms and hopped into technicolor plumbing pipes alongside some classic 8-bit tunes. And now you can play it full-screen on our desktop. The nostalgia alone makes it more than worth it.
