These games do not require the Adobe Flash Player or any other plug in. This means they'll run in your browser automatically."
The HTML5 games run directly in your browser. Examples of popular browsers include Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. The games work best on desktop computers. Some of them run on tablets, too.
The bottom line is you don't need any plug-ins to your browser for the games to work. The games should run automatically when you open them.
To launch a game, first go to the game page. Then click the Small, Medium, or Large button under the picture of the game, or the HTML5/Mobile link. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
In general, these games do not work well on smart phones. Many of the games appear too small on a phone screen. So play them on your desktop computer if you can.
Some of the games have both an HTML5 version and an Adobe Flash version. You'll see this on the game page. Simply choose which version you want to play. With regard to the Flash games, only the Flash games marked as "Ruffle Flash" are currently playable.
List of Ruffle Flash games. Following is a list of the games that have an Adoble Flash version compatible with the Ruffle Flash player. These are playable in your browser: 3D Logic • Air Typer • Brain Follow • Glitter Memory • Lightning Librarian • Mario Memory • QuickPic Memory • School Supply SNAP • Tom & Jerry Snack
Adobe Flash games are old technology. In 2020 they were phased out by the major tech companies. However, the new Ruffle Flash player allows some of the old Flash games to be played. You don't need to download the Ruffle Flash player. The player is embedded on my site and runs the compatible Flash games automatically.
Because Adobe Flash is no longer being developed, I'll mostly be adding HTML5 games going forward. HTML5 games load fast and use open-source technology that works well with modern browsers.
I hope you enjoy these games. Play them often to give your brain a boost. There's no logging in, no registering. Just go to the game page and start playing!
