How To Find The Best Strategy

While there are tons of games out there that are graphically rich and meant to take advantage of your computers hardware to render realistic characters, environment and special effects, not a lot of us have the money to spend on gaming rigs to even be able to play these games. Fortunately though, there are also “arcade games” that have been developed that you can play within your browser, making use of flash which doesn’t need quite as much video processing power for you to play. Strategy flash games are one of the most popular genres today, requiring strategy and critical thinking similar to playing a game chess. A popular variation are tower defense flash games which is similar to chess in that you defend against attack, as well as launching attacks of your own. Strategy flash games generally require just a keyboard and mouse to interact with the game and can be played straight from the browser. There is no need to install them once it has been fully loaded.

Strategy flash games provide endless opportunities for fun and challenge for hours at a time. One can typically go online and look for websites that feature flash games. They are typically segregated into different genres and sub-genres. These can include puzzle, shooting, arcade, strategy, RPG (role playing game), Sports and action genres. Some sites can feature hundreds or even thousands of games, and one can probably find them on several different sites. Some websites sometimes pay for exclusivity or at least semi-exclusivity, so you may find the same version of a particular game across several sites, but only one site would probably give you access to special bonuses and levels. Some sites will often encourage you to play particular titles across different genres, sometimes offering in-game rewards and boosts that you can use to your advantage while playing tower defense flash games. Playing on a site focused on flash games also allows you the opportunity of reading through the forums where you can learn and exchange ideas and strategies. It also allows you to meet players with similar interests not necessarily limited to gaming.

Another great place to find strategy flash games are at the sites of the designers themselves. Designers often make more than one game and use their site as a portal for players to experience playing the games directly from them. Many of these developers can be accessed and found on online gaming distribution website such as Mochimedia and Kongregate. These websites allow website developers and gamers to sample and even download these online games, usually in a ‘SWF’ file format. If you have enjoyed a particular game, you can try out many other games that the developers have made with the likelihood of being able to experience the same level of polish across all their titles. In addition to playing strategy flash games and various other genres, you can also provide feedback that can actually influence upcoming titles or even future versions of the same game. Normally, you will be able to rate or comment on a game that you like. Sometimes there will be a link to the game developer’s website where you can contact them directly to share your opinion.

Making Money Online

If anyone thought making money online was only possible through cutting business deals, they are wrong. Worse still is the fact that going to school, seeking a career, and climbing up the corporate ladder is not the only avenue for money minting. Today, fun activities like online games also earn people loads of money. Unrealistic as it may sound, it is big time business for both the player and the software designers. Whether it is a mind game such as chess or an adrenaline packed game such as motocross, there are willing opponents on the other side of the world or within the same neighborhood who are ready to take the challenge. The games come in all types including sports, strategy, card, arcade, word-power and racing games.

ADVANTAGES
For the players or competitors, unlike real-life rugby, motor racing and skiing, these are played behind a computer screen with no threat of bodily harm. Before you can engage in competition you can test your ability or comfort level. This can help you determine whether your chances of winning are realistic. Should there be no realistic chance of winning, you still have your money. Considering that there are millions of online games, you have the freedom to choose the game you are most comfortable with and even determine the competition rules and environment. Online games are also good for gaining extra skill for practical implementation in real life competition. There are also several prices to be won and this can get better depending on the level of the competition if it is classified by level of difficulty.

DISADVANTAGES
Of course the biggest disadvantage is that you can end up losing money if you play against a better opponent. The desire to win can increase with every loss that ultimately, A loss essentially means a financial loss. Addiction can also creep in to the extent that a player can forget that there is more to life than playing games online for money. In such a case the best strategy is to play the free games until a higher level of confidence and competence has been attained. As for the software developers there are no major disadvantages to name. Except for the fact that the development and streamlining of the code could take several days and even months, the financial rewards far outstrip any drawbacks.

RULES
Considering that there are so many online games, there is a corresponding high number of rules for the various versions. Some of these can even be adjusted to suite the competitors. Indeed online games whether seen from the perspective of the developers or the players, have more to do with the interconnection rather than the format or pattern of the game. Typically, participants each contribute small amounts and the winner takes it all. And the overriding governance is the End User Licensing Agreements that come with each game.

CONCLUSION
It is worth noting that the games that exist are just but a small fraction of what Internet users’ desire. This reflects the immense opportunities available not just for the gaming developers on the one hand, but also for the players who are ever thirsty for online money making opportunities through games.

Best Free Online Games

If you’re feeling bored, or simply need a break from the monotony of work, finding the best free online games sites can provide you with entertainment and amusement. After spending a few minutes playing, you should feel refreshed and back in the mood to carry on with your mundane computing chores.

The trouble with many free online games sites is that they often require you to sign up before you play. Any sensible person nowadays is wary of giving their email address to a site they are unfamiliar with. After all, would you give your name,address and telephone number to any stranger in the street who asked you for it? I know I wouldn’t.

Other online games sites spawn lots of annoying popup windows, some of which manage to evade even the best popup blocker software.

On other sites, there are often distracting advertisements on the screen which ruin your gameplay and make it harder for you to achieve your high scores.

I love playing online games, but I just want to get to the best ones with a minimum of fuss and start playing without wasting my precious time. I’ve done some research (probably too much for my own good) to try and identify the factors which make some free games sites good and others a waste of time.

The best free online games sites:

  • Offer different types of games, such as arcade, shooting, MMO, puzzle and word games as well as brain trainers
  • Provide games for all ages
  • Have a good number of games to choose from
  • Use only standard plugins like Shockwave and Flash

The worst free online games sites:

  • Spawn irritating popup windows
  • Demand that you to sign up before you are allowed to play
  • Display annoying, distracting ads alongside the game
  • Require you to download their software
  • Insist that you download their toolbar
