There are thousands and thousands of flash games on the internet. Pin pointing the absolute top 10 is not just difficult it’s impossible. No one has played them all. So this personal list of top 10 flash games is just that, a personal list of my favourite flash games from the selection I have played. Not only have I not played some that you may have played, but our tastes my differ. So take this list as just me recommended playing list. Here they are in no particular order.
- Reincarnation (Series): Reincarnation already has four full titles and five mini games in a span of two years! Each title is very well made graphics-wise and gameplay-wise. Together with full voice-over, the Reincarnation series’ production value is top-notch. The game is a point-and-click puzzler with a premise of murdering a devil reincarnated. However, you will make sure that it looks like an accident since these hell-spawns are assuming human lives. You control a devil that rises from Hell, dragging back his colleagues who managed to escape the eternal flames. Very cool.
- Infectonator: Some people may find the pixelated graphics off-putting but Infectonator is a very good game. I love zombie-killing flash games. Infectonator reverses the zombie formula. Instead of you blowing up the heads of the undead, you are tasked to infect everyone on your screen. The disease you are spreading is fully upgradable! The pixelated mayhem in this 918kiss is overwhelming.
- Clickplay 2: The first title is considered inferior and I agree. Clickplay 2 gets the core of its origin and spins a better line-up of puzzles. The grey themed graphics is well done but the heart of this game relies on several mini-puzzles, searching for the “Play” button to jump to the next level. Each mini-puzzle is unique and even if it’s short it’s packed with gaming goodness.
- The Trader of Stories: Since flash games are bite-sized gaming, stories are mostly given less priority. Surprisingly, The Trader of Stories creates a wonderful world by putting a player to a task of writing a story! This point-and-click adventure is about piecing up stories from a mysterious little town. Graphics, hands down, the most beautiful among all of flash games. Bar none.
- Take A Walk: Hand-drawn, no colours, very easy game. Why is this game included in my list? Simple, this rhythm game is the most relaxing flash game. The protagonist is an overworked office worker (sounds familiar) who decided to take a walk while listening to music, seeing his world in a new “colour”. Take A Walk is not a game, it’s an experience.
- Garden Gnome Carnage: An “arcade-y” pixel game with lots of fun to offer, Garden Gnome Carnage is about stopping hoards and hoards of Santas from sliding down your chimney. It’s carnage with hundreds of Santas getting killed by being bumped out, thrown with bricks or getting scorched from the Air Strikes! This is a game that never gets old even if the theme is Christmas I can play this all year round.
- Crush The Castle 2: I never played the original so I really can’t compare this sequel to the original. What I like most about Crush the Castle 2 is the physics. Crush the Castle 2’s physics is not the greatest but it mysteriously blends well with falling medieval debris. This is a launch game with the primary objective of destroying castles and its inhabitants with the fewest shots possible.
- SuperStacker 2: The game is about stacking shapes in various sizes and keeping your hopes high that it holds its ground for 10 seconds. The game’s concept is simple, the execution is perfect. This sequel features 40 levels of intense stacking. There is also a level editor for you to create your own puzzle. That’s a lot for a simple game.
- Harmony Keeper: Eating planets and stars may sound like a dreadful scene to watch. In Harmony Keeper, destruction is never this harmonious. The game is about stellar destruction, you are protected by your summons against forces which retaliate to save their own planets and very existence. The game is graphically-fantastic and customisation is deep enough to warrant different experience for every replay.
- Reelz: Reelz is a slot game which is more of logical skill than luck. Managing one’s credits while keeping mental notes is a very nice mixture of non-physical gaming. The game’s repetitive nature is masked by the depth and complexity of the possibilities that the “reelz” are about to offer you.
The games above will surely eat a chunk of your time since most of these games have great replay value. Replay value is one of my standards when it comes to judging a flash game. Graphics are not that important as long as it complements the game. These are my top 10 flash games of all time, and I’m still playing them whenever I have time to spare.
