Some days you want fast paced shooting action in the latest mainstream FPS. Other times you'd rather just sit back, relax, and enjoy a bit of simple fun on your internet browser. As browsers have become more advanced, so too have the games. So it just so happens that a simple game with basic graphics that takes seconds to load can still be a ton of fun.
These are the best browser games available in 2019 . Note that all they require in order to work is a device that operates a browser, and an internet connection. So your mobile will work just fine, or your desktop.
The game of Snake was extremely popular when mobile phones were first released. The idea is simple; guide the snake to the pellet, and eat it. For each pellet eaten, the snake grows longer. The challenge is that the snake can't hit his own tail, which becomes progressively more of a problem the more pellets you eat.
Slither.io takes this concept to the extreme. It is online multiplayer, with multiple snakes in one zone. Yes, all must eat pellets, and all must avoid not only their own tail, but that of the other players. It is the most fun you can have in your browser, short of classic online betting . It's free, it's fun, play now.
There was a time when Doom was cutting edge technology. Now the basic 3D shooter can be played on your browser for free. It is still a ton of fun, and absolutely worth checking out. The controls are not the best on a touchscreen though, so it is best to play with a mouse and keyboard if you can.
Initially seeming simple, but gradually becoming deeply engaging, Linerider is the very definition of a great browser game. Simply draw a line with your pencil, then click play and watch the man ride the line like a physical surface. Physics play a big part, and you'd be amazed at how much is possible in a simple browser.
Tequila Zombies 3
The name pretty much says it all. Drink tequila and kill zombies. It is a free side scrolling beat ‘em up, and has had a great deal of effort put into it. It probably won't hold your attention for too long, but that it can be loaded in a browser at any time might be just the solution for a boring few hours in a queue.
Pocket tanks is an iteration of one of the most simple, yet addictive games. Those who used Dos way back in the day may remember it being called Gorilla. Though the gorilla threw bananas and was about as simple as could be, Pocket Tanks is a slightly more advanced version. Adjust the angle and power of your shots, select a weapon, and try and destroy the enemy tanks. It's more engaging than you might assume, and certainly one of the most addictive browser games that is still 100% free. Take a look the next time you have a few minutes to spare.
What makes Apex Legends interesting is that there is no free-for-all mode. Players must always be part of a team, and work together to achieved victory. A unique ‘ping' system allows teammates to communicate with one another, simply by pointing at relevant object in the world and pressing a button. Very handy.
Quake 3 Arena focused squarely on the multiplayer aspect, and it was arguably this move that gave us the multiplayer shooters we know today. Though, sadly, there hasn't been much from the franchise since the fairly recent Quake Champions, which failed to impress players. Hopefully there will be more from this once wildly popular franchise, which once stood as the king of the shooter mountains.
