Favorite Flash Game?

For those of you who don’t already know, as of December of this year Adobe will no longer be providing support for flash player. (This doesn’t mean flash player will be deleted in December, it means flash will get buggier and buggier until it stops working because no one will be fixing the bugs anymore)

Today while feeling nostalgic and rummaging the internet for some of my old favorite flash games I came across this article which talks about a project called Flashpoint which aims to preserve all flash games before Flash player’s demise makes them obsolete. Read the article here: https://www.wired.com/story/flash-games-digital-preservation-flashpoint/

Highlights:

  • The Flashpoint project has so far preserved 38,000 games

  • The games will all be playable offline to protect against any future changes in internet technology interfering with gameplay

  • All of the games will be available in torrent form for free

(So to the folks who interacted with this post: Adobe Flash Gone in 2020, there is hope! )

In celebration of this positive news, let’s reminisce shall we? :slight_smile: What were/are some of your favorite flash based games (whether on AddictingGames, Newgrounds, or elsewhere)?

My personal top five were: Fancy Pants Adventure (1 and 2), Line Rider, literally any Orsinal game, Bloons, and this game called Secret Life that I swear existed on AddictingGames but is absolutely impossible to find.

Yess Fancypants! My favorites include any roiworld dress up/makeover games from the late 2000s. Those games gave my my love for sparkling things because they all had at least one shiny lipstick & a bunch of sparkly eyes :aww: Save the Sheriff & Aqua maze (I think that’s what it’s called, it’s a fish that goes through a bunch of sand and moves an orb to the end goal :thinking: ) are also my favorites!

Didn’t know of it but I’m playing it now and there is A Lot going on in this little section of screen. It’s a very cute setup! And I can imagine spending a lot of time just learning all the in and outs.

I looked this up and for some reason the first result was a French version so now I’m on it and playing some game where you alternately questions/judge other’s answers in French (which I don’t speak) and for some reason people are giving me points?

Anyway I used to play some games like this back in the day, thanks for the nostalgia trip :slight_smile:

Ya it started as one screen and got a little out of control. I never did so much math to optimize a game before.

I saw that you liked bloons too which is a classic but my god that got crazy when they transitioned to microtransaction models too. That game bloo up

That sounds Very Quality :ok_hand::ok_hand:

thankful I didn’t stick around for the monetization of that game. Nothing kills a game’s charm faster than microtransactions.

All I read was the title so here is my favorite flash game

Sega 1993 I hope this helps
