Flash Games

Not that people who have been following the news about Candy Crush Saga maker King trademarking "Candy" and causing issues over The Banner Saga's use of the word "Saga" in its title need any more fuel for the fire, but here g...
Dojo of Death is a super addictive little browser game over on Kongregate. You are a ninja, and you must kill other ninjas with the simple click of your mouse button. Just aim, click, and slash away. The entire thing takes place in one room, and two enemy types spawn as you go on your slicing rampage. Enjoy!
"Your car is falling apart in the middle of the night in the middle of a highway. Make sure not to die. This is important. Control the car using hand." This is Night Rider Turbo, the chaotic new game from McPixel creator Sos ...
The Ludum Dare game jam series has been going on for a while now, with its 28th iteration coming up next month. Ludum Dare 26's theme was "minimalism," and one of the titles to come out of that event was Leaf Me Alone, a 2D e...
Do you remember Tower of Heaven? If the answer is yes, skip ahead to the next paragraph. If the answer is "no" because you never played it back in 2009, then you can (and should) rectify that immediately. It's not very long; ...
In last week's episode of web series Video Game High School, the character Ki created a videogame based on lead protagonist Brian D's troubled first week of class. In other words, it was a game adaptation of VGHS Season 1, ap...
"You can't just type ANYTHING, you know." Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing is a typing game. Kind of. You will type. Feverishly, fiendishly, and a bit fetishisticly. For reasons. And an owl will feed you false facts while an...
Hey, 80s babies! Have fond memories of portable gaming in the days before Game Boy? Did your parents ever buy you those Tiger electronic handhelds for $10 a pop to shut you up on those long drives? Or were you born just a lit...
Super Mario Crossover, the pixel-for-pixel recreation of Super Mario Bros. that features a selectable cast of NES stars, was all set for the big 3.0 update this past June. It was unfortunately delayed a month, but it is now a...
It's a pretty slow weekend. Why not kill an hour or two by playing this freeware Flash game just released yesterday? Ripple Dot Zero by Pixeltruss is an homage to the super awesome Genesis years of my youth. Taking its cues ...
By now, we've seen the big reveals of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and I can safely declare a winner: PC. Why? Because just a few days ago, Metanet Software released a huge update to its diabolical ninja platformer N,...
Capcom has finally slapped a proper localized title onto Ace Attorney 5, hereby known as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, and will be bringing it out West this fall. Unfortunately, it will be an eShop-only relea...
Notch's new game is called Drop, and it's a simple little speed typing game that you can play right in your browser. Well it starts off simple enough, but then things quickly change and you start to doubt your typing skills a...
For this week's mind teaser we're not just using our brains, we're using our ears. Rhythm Doctor on Newgrounds challenges players to participate in the tunes at specific moments to progress, with an interesting (bizarre) spin...
Three years ago as of yesterday, indie dev Exploding Rabbit's Super Mario Bros. Crossover was unleashed online, and the reception couldn't have been warmer. For the benefit of the unfortunate few who haven't heard of this da...
Planet Punch sees you as this mass of energy that steals the planet Earth, beats up our Sun, then goes around the galaxy punching the shit out of everything with the Earth. Yup, you guessed it, this is totally an Adult Swim g...
I'll talk about Robot Unicorn Attack any chance I can get. I do have to say though, I'm surprised it's taken this long for a retro version of the hit runner game to happen. Still, it's as a fun as ever with you collecting fai...
Last year, fans of I-Mockery's irreverent brand of pop culture humor were treated to Abobo's Big Adventure, a mashup of all things NES starring the muscle-bound Double Dragon boss Abobo. As hilarious as Abobo's Big Adventure ...
I think we're all pretty familiar with dating sims. They're typically really cute, but mostly they're pretty erotic. Admit it, we've all played them before just to see what they were about and most of the time they're not tha...
It's a little too short, a little too simple, a little tedious, and doesn't have enough music, but that's still not stopping me from declaring that The Guardian on Newgrounds is one of the best simple pixel art games I've eve...
After climbing down 350 floors of traps, monsters, and ninja ghosts, not to mention the extra levels seemingly without end, I've come to one conclusion: I should never become a ninja. Sure, I should have known that before I e...
I love games that find complexity by exploring simplicity. This flash game does a great job of stripping down the fill-a-grid color maze genre, and it continually adds new path manipulation puzzle concepts along the way. I wi...
You poor, poor gamer soul. It's getting late and you were just about to sign off and go to bed. Then you checked the new Monday Mind Teaser. You fool. It's no secret that this is one of the most addicting flash games ever mad...
I found this game before I knew it was associated with a preteen dystopian adventure novel, and while The Keepers trilogy is far from being the next Harry Potter craze, it still looks like it could be a good gift for your you...
I'm pretty sure I've lamented in the past that I don't know what the kids are into with the music anymore. So, understand that I have no idea who this "Skrillex" person is, but I'm getting the idea that he's kind of becoming ...
Jonathan Ross sent me the link to Frog Fractions this morning. I didn't give it enough time at first, believing it to be some weird browser-based educational game. Then I saw it brought up on Twitter and quickly realized ther...
Capcom insists on seeing this construct through to the end, so I might as well keep abreast of the latest news and developments. First up is this fan-made Rockman Xover Flash demo that recreates the TGS build Conrad played. I...
[Update: I mistakenly said that Dj CUTMAN was the organizer for this project. It was actually the staff of the VG music site Nobuwo. My bad.] Rokko Chan was really something special, wasn't it? If you haven't played it or eve...
Indie designer Edmund McMillen wasn't kidding when he said The Basement Collection would be releasing in late August. Described as "9 years of indie video game goodness with all the bells an whistles I could drum up along the...
Everyone wants to live in harmony, harmony with Robot Unicorn Attack. The original game has been played over 100 million times (99 million through Facebook, 14 million through AdultSwim.com). It even reached the top of the ch...
Before it was a PS2, Gamecube, GBA, Xbox or XBLA game, Alien Hominid was a staple on the popular Flash portal Newgrounds. Just yesterday, the game's cute little yellow devil obtained a new milestone: 20 million plays. That's ...
If you've got a few minutes to spare, you might want to give Johan Peitz's A Super Mario Summary a spin. Whipped up in 48 hours for the 23rd Ludum Dare game development event this past weekend, it's an abbreviated version of ...
Do you want to play Fez but you can't afford to buy the game and/or a Xbox 360?  Well you're in luck. Sky Island is a Flash game that takes the concept of Fez but does it for free. Don't get too excited though. You get w...
 . . . but then she was a zombie. This enjoyably simple game popped up on Reddit over the weekend and its concept and music carry it a long way beyond its sparse graphics and easy difficulty. The KrangGames flash game on...
"A very good videogame." - Jonathan Holmes That's the sum total of the description I was given before playing Atakachik, a Flash game from a few years ago which Holmes inexplicably turned up with this evening. When this ...
I don't know why running away from the destruction of an entire city is compelling, but it is. Just play Canabalt. Just before I wrote this up, I thought it would be a good time to play it for a couple of minutes. Half an ho...
The NES era was a special time for a lot of us. Many of the staff here at Dtoid will always have a certain attachment to the period, myself included. Abobo's Big Adventure is a tribute to all those who grew up with the gaming gods of old. This free Flash game is quite fun and funny, definitely well worth a trip down memory lane.
Super Mario Bros Crossover, a flash game which takes characters from classic videogames and puts them into a recreation of Super Mario Bros., has had an update in the works for over a year now. Version 2.0, which we first tol...
A couple years ago, Jay "Exploding Rabbit" Pavlina had the idea to remake Super Mario Bros. with 100% accuracy down to the last pixel... with the added twist of being able to play as other NES stars such as Mega Man, Link, S...
I started playing a bit of Kingdom Rush two weeks ago following the news of the Flash game's iPad release, and managed to drag myself away from Ironhide Game Studio's excellent little tower defense title before an entire day ...
