Smartphones and gaming have become synonymous these days. But for people like me who spend most of their time in front of their desktops, online gaming sites like Kongregate come to the rescue.
You can solve puzzles, race cars or save the world from zombies, all from within your browser. There is no need to install the game on your system. And you get your small dose of entertainment and the much needed break from work as well! Sadly in this age of smartphones, online gaming portals are seldom mentioned. For greater good, here is a round-up of free online game sites where you can waste your oh-so-precious time :).
Free Online Game Sites
With thousands of free games, both from indies and large studios, Kongregate has games in diverse genres including shooting, action and MMO to appease the gamer in you. A couple of games that I would recommend are, AdVenture Capitalist and Prime World: Defenders.
Armor Games hosts free Flash based browser games across a variety of genres, such as tower defense, strategy and RPGs. Some of the popular games are, Doodle God 2, Learn to Fly 2 and Game of Thrones Ascent.
From music games and magic games to gun games and zombie games, you can pick from game titles spanning an exhaustive list of categories and subcategories. Some notable picks are: Frozen Islands and Ruthless Pandas.
Need quick bit of fun? Check out their section of 5 minute games. Apart from these in-a-hurry games, they have plenty of games and categories to choose from.
A web gaming portal, Newgrounds has a great selection of games, from the usual action & adventure games to simulation and strategy games. You could give a try to Theropods, a short 8-bit puzzle game.
Now you are equipped with sites to kill your time and where you can go when you need some distraction. Have a happy gaming time!
