Browser games are not popular and are not played often. Competing with better graphics and action of PlayStation or Xbox is quite a tall order. However, there are very addictive unknown browser games. Some will totally reduce your productivity to almost zero. Many may say that flash games are a relic of the past but those who have played them know the truth which is that browser games can be very engaging. Here are five flash games you did not play and probably did not know existed. If you give them a try, you will be happily surprised.
1. The Monolith
The monolith is an incremental game that stands out from the rest. For starters, it has a very attractive appearance. It also has more depth than your typical incremental game. It may take a while, but once you get going on Monolith, it is very difficult to stop. Once you start acquiring and storing soldiers and scholars, the game catches on very quickly.
Monolith is a very interesting game because in the beginning, you start with prayer. After praying, you have to make a sacrifice to a Monolith located on the right side of your screen. The sacrifices earn you points which you use to buy soldiers and scholars. The soldiers gradually pick away at an eccentric egg looking structure that is located on the left-hand side of your screen.
With time, the egg will crack open or hatch and what comes out is pretty interesting. Leeches will come out of the broken egg. The purpose of the leeches is to draw power away from the earlier Monolith to whom you had to pray to and make sacrifices. As the power is eroded from it, your Monolith gets stronger. It is bizarre yet fascinating.
2. Cookie Clicker
Cookie clicker is undoubtedly among the best flash games ever created. It does not take much to understand the game which makes it easy and fun to play. Cookie clicker is setting the standard for incremental browser games. The game has an incredible wealth of features. Once you get a preview of what the game is about you can jump right in. The depth of the game is quite astounding. You could play the game on end for days and still uncover new features.
Part of the fun of the game is its simplicity. What you do in the game is entirely in its name, you click cookies. After a little while clicking cookies, you acquire an army of Grandma's slaves who can do a variety of things such as open wormholes into novel dimensions. There are cookie gods in these worlds who can bestow powers upon you which you can use to fill all of the space-time with cookies. The powers are not all that good but the incremental nature if the game will have you hooked in no time.
3. Candy Clicker Pro
Have you ever wanted to be a business magnate controlling an entire candy empire? Then this is the game that will allow you to do just that. Candy Clicker Pro is one of the most aesthetically pleasing incremental flash games. On the contrary, after you start playing the game, you will have to make a few upgrades which will take up a lot of your computer's processing power. The fans will be at full throttle, and it will get pretty loud. The gameplay will also slow down a bit. With a good computer, these effects will only be slightly noticeable.
Candy Clicker Pro can be considered a very good way to learn about business. You can hire employees such as marketers, shippers and laborers to help you sell and replace your candy. Once you acquire the resources, you need your operations will start running more efficiently than before. You can increase the number of your staff and hence your empire. You can get a pretty good idea of what it is like to be a business operator from playing this game. It is addictive and educational; killing both birds with one stone.
Not many mainstream games will allow you to build a drug business empire. Most people have daydreamed of being a rich drug cartel once or twice especially after seeing and hearing the stories of famous drug lords like Pablo Escobar or El Chapo. Kushify is an incremental game that allows you to make those dreams a virtual reality. Not only is Kushify a simple game but it is also looks great. The green interface really makes the marijuana and dollar bills seem realistic. If you can spend a few minutes to learn the game, you will swiftly get the hang of it and will soon be lost in it.
Building a drug empire is similar to building a business empire. There are a lot of operations to be taken care of. You need to keep track of your cash flow, the health and performance of your farms as well as keep your dealers in line. For those who are less inclined to play a game about drugs, the game has an option where you can build a coffee empire.
5. Clicker Heroes
Clicker Heroes is one of the most beautiful incremental games ever made. Moreover, you get to advance by earning gold. Once you earn enough gold, you can hire help to deal with your foes. The aim is to move to the point where you have enough troops for you to be doing very little of the work. The troops will help you advance to the next level. One can get quite obsessed with Clicker Heroes and advancing up the levels.
Progression is the primary joy derived from incremental browser games and Clicker Heroes is no different. Every unit has its challenges different from the previous one. The gratification one gets from advancing within the game is akin to climbing the corporate ladder. In Clicker Heroes, you can get to a level where you unlock an ally who will help you relinquish your enemies. The game is a lot of fun.
Many players are worried about the perception of others who might see them playing such games. Building a drug empire is a reason why games like Kushify, and incremental games in general, are not mainstream games.
Also, mainstream games have a lot more sensory stimulation than browser games have. You can perform a lot more functions than in flash games. The resolution of flash games also cannot compare to most games.
Mainstream games are aggressively marketed, unlike flash games. There are cinematic previews and other promotional tools used to market mainstream games which may be why you may have never played or even heard of the games above.
