2. Street Skater
Among the more interesting games on this list, Street Skater is a retro-style skating game. You have to jump over obstacles, performing stunts like backflips and ollies and collect as many gold coins as possible. Just don’t the character die. It really dies a quite painful death, with his head flying to one side of the screen and blood being scattered all over the screen. The game scores quite high in entertainment value and will definitely manage to impress you to the core.
Furthermore, the game is controlled using two keys: Spacebar and Shift. The skateboard moves on its own. Pressing the Spacebar once is required for the normal jump, whereas pressing it twice gives you a higher jump. On the other hand, the Shift key lets you perform tricks, but this also increases the risk factor, so trade accordingly.

A game purely based on Physics, you’ll be required to create a path on which the character whose sitting on the sledge will move. Gravity and Laws of motion? Well, you don’t need to get into much about all that, but do remember, what goes up must come down! On a serious note, make sure to draw a realistic path otherwise the character very quickly goes off track.
Once you have drawn the path, you could even test it before setting off the character for the final run. Because once it is up and running, you cannot change its path in between. Apart from that, there are tons of other customizations available. Do check them out as well. All in all, a short, quick and interesting time-killer game.
4. Sunset Bike Racer
Remember Nintendo’s famous ExciteBike? Well, Sunset Bike Racer manages to bring back that old feeling, and in style. You will be having a dirtbike that you have to control in uneven terrain. The picturesque location of the sun slowly setting up while you perform the stunts in the foreground altogether gives a euphoric aura.
The controls are pretty simple too. The bike moves on its own. The Space bar gives it speed while the Shift fires up the Nitro booster. On the other hand, the Ctrl key applies the brake. To steer the bike left or right, you might take the help of left and right arrow keys.
Tip: While landing the bike, try to keep it in equilibrium. Even the slightest of forward or backward bent while landing might make matters much worse.
Play: Sunset Bike Racer
5. Revenge of the Kid
Part of a bandit group, everything was going great until your team caught a great fish (i.e truckloads of money) and ran away. Feeling betrayed, you are onto an act of revenge-taking mission. Set in the Deserts, you will be given some basic and some rather interesting weapons at your disposal. The trick really is how well you aim, right from your spot. This is because the character is fixed at the spot and cannot move either forward or back.
Use your sense and a little bit of knowledge of trajectory to get a perfect aim and make all your enemies extinct. The game is really an interesting one and becomes more so as you progress further in the game. Along with that, you also get new weapons in your arsenal as you keep on making progress. Definitely an interesting game on this list, without a shadow of a doubt.
Play: Revenge of the Kid
The only game that probably needs no introduction whatsoever. Tetris revolutionized the gaming industry since its inception in 1984. If for any reason you still don’t have any idea about this game, then here is what needs to be done. You have to arrange falling pieces of blocks (Tetris) in such a way that none of the empty spaces is left.
As soon as a horizontal space is filled, it’s getting cleared. You have to clear as many horizontal spaces as possible by arranging and placing the blocks in the best possible manner. Doing so increases your score, the level and subsequently the speed at which these blocks fall. However, if you fail to clear a block of lines, these Tetris gets mounted one over the other until the highest point of the playing field, after which you lose this game.
As far as the controls are concerned, the upward arrow makes the block rotates right, the Z key makes it rotates left, right and left arrow makes it move in the respective directions, Space Bar makes the Tetris falls faster whereas the downward arrow makes for a slow drop. Although these controls are weirdly mapped, you have the option to change it from the in-game Options menu.
7. Vector Runner
One of the simplest and relaxing games on this list. The aim is simple: jump and avoid obstacles. And the jump is carried out via a Mouse click. A single click makes for a smaller jump whereas two continuous clicks give you longer leverage and jump. The car moves forward on its own, so you don’t have to worry about the acceleration part. But as soon as the game progresses, the speed drastically increases and after a certain checkpoint, a huge storm comes your way.
This shakes the entire platform to the core giving you a high degree of uncertainty and instability. But to be frank, this is where the real challenge of this game lies. Up until that point, everything seems quite monotonous. So if you really have some time up your sleeves, consider giving this game a try, wait for the storm to appear and grab the challenge with both your hands.

Highly regarded as the pioneer game that completely revolutionized the FPS (First Person Shooter) section of the gaming industry, DOOM hardly needs an introduction of sorts. You play inside a dungeon filled with enemies, most of whom are aliens. In the beginning, you are given the most basics of guns and a handful of ammo to play with. These get recharged and you also get new, improved and more powerful from the enemies or at hidden places as the game progresses further.
This game has probably seen countless spin-offs that one probably can’t even imagine. Although you could download and play this game even on your Windows 10 PC (via the Dosbox), you will witness considerable frame-drops throughout the game, thereby making it unplayable. Therefore, this online version of DOOM is definitely worth a try.
9. Pocket tanks
Remember the old and classic Pocket Tanks Deluxe that we fired upon our XP PCs? Well, you could get the same experience in your browser with the help of the Pocket Tanks flash game. Although the graphics leave a lot to be desired, that’s the case with most of the browser games. As far as the level of excitement goes, well, you wouldn’t be left disappointed a little bit. Initially, you’ll only be given two weapons, but it goes on increasing as the game progresses. You can increase the power of these weapons via the Page Up key and decrease them using the Power Down keys.
The Up and Down arrows are used to rotate the cannons rotate whereas you could move the tank left or right using the said arrow keys. Moreover, the keys Q and W are used to switch between weapons and when everything is set, use the SpaceBar to fire up your loaded weapons. The only caveat? You’ll require another player to play this game. It currently doesn’t have a CPU mode. With that said, still a nice time-passer.
Play: Pocket Tanks
10. Blast Arena
A callback to the yesteryear’s Bomberman, this game is one for the ages. For the unknown, the game starts inside a maze or bricks of walls. You’ll be handed a bomb, to begin with. The aim is to place the bombs at such strategical places that apart from breaking walls, your opponents get killed. Don’t worry about the limited bombs.
These bombs hold different kinds of power-ups, from increasing your bomb’s explosive radius to make you run faster. But the most useful of them is the one that allows you to carry more than one bomb. But it’s not that easy. Your opponents will constantly be looking for these power-ups and could easily steal these bonuses if you don’t reach the spot first. The game also allows you to chat with your opponents in the form of emojis. Go try it out now!

In Slither.io, the snake’s hungry for dots. Eat the dots, make him grow longer and avoid touching your opponents. Well, does this ring any bell? If yes, then you’re not alone. It’s an old reminiscence of the Snake game that we used to play on our Nokia devices. There are some changes though. As you eat more dots, your body gets more elongated and wider.
And if you time your run well, you could even eat your opponent. As soon as you do so, their body gets decomposed into hundreds of dots scattered all over. Apart from that, it also holds some customization options. For example, you could re-design its skin, play the game at an increased pace or even buy some merchandise for your snake.
One of the more relaxing games on our list of best browser games, this game also takes a page or two from the Snakes game, but only just. You begin as a small kind-of-snake creature, with a particular assigned colour, on a white hexagonal board. You have to cover all these tiles with the colour of your own body. This is done by moving over to those tiles and linking them back to your base.
As you keep on moving to occupy newer territories, your opponents might over to yours and make it neutral. Yes, it won’t go to their section but would become a neutral ground for anyone to occupy. Similarly, if you move over to someone else’s area, it neutralizes and the area becomes open for all to occupy. The ending of the game is similar to what other similar games have in store. If you come in contact with other snakes, you die.
13. War Broker
Ready for the Ultimate Battle experience? Most of the games on this list qualify for being relaxing and tense-free in nature. But not this one. War broker is a first-person shooter game. You start the game with two weapons, a pistol, and a rifle. But as the game progresses, you could get your hands on tons of different weapons.
Well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You could also find helicopters and tans roaming around the map. Kill the person inside those vehicles and make it your own. And if you create an account and then start the game, some goodies might be waiting for you then. These include some extra rewards and interesting short missions.
Tip: Before beginning the game, you’ll have to choose a server. Always try to go for your country-specific server for the best optimal experience. Otherwise, some may experience a lag or two in case of average internet connectivity.
Play: War Brokers
For some reason, you’ll love this game. It has one of the most interesting yet weird concepts among all the available games mentioned in this list. In this game, around 10-12 users participate. One of them would draw something, this could be, well anything and you have to guess it right, within the stipulated time period. The earlier you guess, the more points you get. There are hints to let you know if your guess is near to the stipulated answer or not. When your turn comes to draw, make sure not to draw any alphabet or symbols, otherwise, you might be booted right away. Show your artistic skills right away!
In this game you play as a Shark, having a laser attached to the head. The shark moves on its own, you’ll have to make it swim left or right. Moreover, there are small fishes swimming around. Try eating as much as possible to get bonuses and special powers. These allow you to swim faster, give you more power, more XP (experience). However, the laser only works for a second or two, after which you’ll have to wait for it to recharge.
But be aware of your surroundings. Other players (aka sharks) are always lurking around and waiting for the perfect opportunity to attack, and what better way to do so than when your lasers are waiting to get recharged. Stay alive for as long as possible to occupy a higher possible on the leaderboard.
The core principle of this game stands simple: to kill as many of your opponents as possible. This is because the game progresses based on how much bones you are able to consume of your opponents. Yes, it paints a gory picture, to begin with, but still qualifies to be an interesting game. You’ll be part of a team, and there will be two other such teams competing against you. Roam around the map, find hidden loots and some decaying body lying around. That’s the only way of getting more weapons points and bonuses. If you get enough bonuses, you’ll be crowned the king of that region.
As far as controls go, use the W, A, S and D keys for movement, Keys 1, 2, Q and E to switch between weapons, R to use a special weapon, H to throw a weapon and the Spacebar to jump. Apart from that, the left mouse click makes the character jump whereas the right click makes him run faster. Yes, the control is somewhat confusing and difficult to learn at first go, but take nothing away from this game.
17. Little War Game
Every one of you might have played Age of Empires in your childhood. It’s now time to welcome the same (well sort of) in a pixelated experience. Keeping the graphics aside, Little War Game manages to take a lot of the from Microsoft’s famous strategy based war game. Talking about the game, you could either play against an online opponent or vs CPU. The game starts with you having just a small hut and a few resources in hand.
You’ll have to explore the map as much as possible to capture the most of the limited resources at hand. The more resources you have, the more you will be able to build houses, building, offensive, and defensive weapons. But don’t take too long or the attacks might happen any time and your enemies might run away with the loot. Moreover, the game holds tons of maps for you to try out.

Initially, you will be placed alongside an opponent having a Pokemon with identical strength, XP and special power. As the game progresses, so will you and your opponent’s ability to inflict damage.
All the powers of your Pokemon will be given right there under the Attack section. The game also allows you to switch between Pokemons. This could be done from the Switch section. And if you lose, you won’t be taken out of the server room. A new match begins within seconds with a new Pokemon at hand. The only downside? The graphics could have been slightly better and there should have been an option to play in fullscreen mode. Still, a pretty interesting game nevertheless.
