Friv - Free Online Games that are Fun and Addictive
There are tons of places online to play little flash games and what not, and I am sure there are better ones out there that Friv.com. Having said that Friv is a great website that has a bunch of really interesting and fun game that you can pickup and play in seconds. Non of them are particularly hard or take that much skill to play but many of them that I have tried are actually really clever and fun. They have a large range of games from puzzle games to shooters and even point and click games.
The downside to Friv is that you don't know what you are going to get when you enter a game. The home screen of the website just has a bunch of icons that you click on to play that particular game. All you know about the game is the name. There are no descriptions of any of the games no categories and no searching. Just point and click and play, which I guess could be considered an asset depending on how you look at it. It gets you to try games you perhaps would not have tried otherwise but a little description would be nice.
I think one of my favorite Friv.com games is called Shift. Its located in the third row from the top and is the next to last in that row. You're in a black and white maze and you have to get your little guy to the doorway. When you hit the shift key the black and white invert, which changes the puzzle. You have to run around in the level inverting the colors to get to the doorway. It's a lot of fun and will be sure to entertain you for a while at least.
Checkout Friv.com and play some of the game they feature.
