    "This is an interesting solution. For mindless gaming and something to do when bored I could see myself playing cookie clicker in my browser. However, when I am looking for something that requires a little more effort or thought it will be a bit of a let down. I would have liked to see something less well-known and unique."

    "Since I spend most of my time at work and can't use mobile all the time, I am always looking for a good browser based game to play. Agar.io is a very good and intuitive game and makes me feel challenged and entertained."

DID YOU KNOW?

Some of the most popular games on consoles and PCs started out as flash games on browsers? The game Trials was first released on browsers in the year 2000. It was a platform motorcycle racing game based on real-world motorcycle trials. It gained mainstream recognition and found a home in game consoles. VVVVVV and Canabalt games inspired the rise of the infinite runner genre. Runescape is one of the best browser RPG that you can play. It even holds the Guinness record for the biggest RPG to this day.

Today's web browsers are fast, efficient, and powerful. Game developers could still tap into this stagnant market, no problem. It becomes less of an enticing option with the rise of mobile smartphones and mobile gaming. The free-to-play business model made browser games popular and accessible back then. Mobile game developers follow the same model and achieved much greater success. They can make more powerful games with ever-growing smartphone hardware. They can also reach a much wider audience due to the ubiquity of mobile smartphones now. Browser games still exist today but it is no longer a source of good quality content that gamers want. Instead, it's now relegated to clicker games and simple pastime casuals. They could still make a relevant comeback in today's gaming landscape. Only time will tell.

    "One of the best platforming games that you can play in your browser. It is artfully done and sounds nice. It reminds me a lot of the Limbo game that probably inspired this game's art style and design."

    "I'm a big fan of One Piece and I'm willing to try anything related to it. This game is decent and has potential to be great depending on where the developers take it. Initial impressions are good. The graphics and animations are nice and this is one of the games that you can play in your browser even on relatively old PCs or laptops."

Anyway, what i like about this browser game is that it offers a selection of social functions such as guilds and the ability to complete quests.
