Flash games are all about fun. Some can be incredibly fun whilst others are mediocre-fun and simply boring. We now come to a realization that the flash game is a heterogeneous mix of great, good and awful, but as of now let’s focus on the best of the rest. Especially coming from a website with one of the most powerful gaming engine for Flash that the net has yet to encounter; FlashGP.com.
FlashGP’s Flash player is very impressive, one of the smoothest and the most hi-res animations ever seen on a website. The sounds are also top notch and can pull you in to the game. More importantly, the games seem to be immune to lagging, which is a big plus. Loading times are quite absent and are mostly done before the game begins. Finally most of the games are free to play until the skill games tournament comes up, which is very convenient.
Now let’s get into the games. To start, we have Astroflyer, a very typical skills game involving flying a spaceship through stars while trying to avoid mountain peaks. It sounds pretty weird but it’s very addicting. The controls are very suave, since the player actually steers his craft using the mouse, boosting a few times along the way by holding the left mouse button to avoid incoming obstacles. It’s one of the most popular games on the site with many participants engaging in its completion for the cash price.
Another notable game is Bimmin, here you take control of a caveman boy, who’s on the run against a T-Rex, leaping from gaps and collecting fruits along the way. Jumping is very important in this game since it seems to increase the cave boy’s speed, enabling him to escape the ferocious jaws of the dinosaur behind him.
