Sometimes, it's nice to be able to play a game without having to go through the tedium and expense of buying one, downloading it then installing it. Fortunately, there are many free gaming sites that allow you to play browser-based games. These are ideal for a person looking for a quick 'gaming fix'. This article will show you where to find no download games.
Armor Games has literally hundreds of web games available to suit the taste of anyone. These are all sorted into categories which are Action, Adventure, Arcade, Shooting, Puzzle & Skill, Strategy, Sports and Miscellaneous. There is a vibrant community spirit on the website that has a forum which offers help, support and general discussion on a number of different topics.
Ratings and scores
Whilst registration isn't required to play the games, doing so opens up many other features. This allows registered users to make comments on games and rate them out of ten. There is also an online scoring system that allows you to upload your score, and to see how you faired against everyone else.
GameHouse, although offering games to purchase and to download for both Mac OS X and Windows, also has a large number (over 350 as of 25.08.11) of online games available to play for free. These are all organised into categories making it easy for the gamer to find the right game for them. These categories are Action, Adventure, Arcade, Board, Card, Casino, Classic, Hidden Object, Jigsaw, Kids, Mahjong, Match 3, Puzzle, Simulation, Strategy, Time Management and Word.
Whilst a number of the games are full games in their own rights, a number of them are cut-down versions of their downloadable cousins, and to be able to play the full version, the site encourages you to purchase and to download a copy.
Requiring the installation of a browser plug-in, Blurst offers a number of unique games that, unlike several other online gaming sites, are all programmed and developed in-house. As these games aren't Adobe Flash-based, some of them are true 3D, and although their titles are not too numerous, they have some novel themes such as Minotaur In A China Shop and Jetpack Brontosaurus.
