What are online games (no download)?
As we have already told you a few lines ago, the greatest benefit that these types of titles provide is that they do not need any type of installation on our computer, since we will reproduce them through our Web navigator.
But beware, do not think that these games are a current novelty, quite the opposite. The explosion of popularity for these came in the 90s, where Flash, Shockwave or Java technologies were decisive for many online platforms to begin to integrate these games. Over time, these games began to become even more popular with the arrival of social networks such as Facebook.
Currently, technology has advanced much more and, with it, the quality and possibilities of these online games. Now there is an infinite catalog that brings together those first games, the most advanced in terms of graphic loading and even emulators of great classic titles for consoles and PC. In short, endless hours of entertainment that are just a click away from us and without the need for a state-of-the-art equipment.
Online game repositories
Before going on to show you the best online games that we have selected, we want to make all the available material available to you so that you can choose for yourself. With this we mean that, below, we show you another list with the best websites / repositories where you can find thousands and thousands of online games.
- Minigames.com: it is a true classic in terms of online gaming websites. In them we can find titles of all kinds and for all tastes: shooting, multiplayer, classics, action, cards, etc.
- Archive.org: it is the great internet repository of free content since, in addition to software, we find video material, complete libraries, images, etc. In terms of games, it has an impressive number of titles, including emulators for classic consoles, among which we can find Aladdin, Prince of Persia, Diablo and a long continuation of many more.
- Games.com: a platform very similar to that of minigames in which, through different categories, we will find many possibilities of games of all kinds.
- Board Game Arena: perhaps the largest community that offers board games, but in an online version. Of course, you will have to register to access them.
Now that you know the basics when it comes to online games, let’s start to see the best with this list that we have prepared. We start with those titles that are a delight for lovers of the classics.
How could it be otherwise, a game like Tetris it had to be in the online version. There are many options to be able to enjoy it online but this choice is perhaps the one that is most reminiscent of its original version.
Among other great games from years ago, we have the first installment of Tom raider original . In it we have to help Lara Croft to fulfill her mission by recovering the fragments of Scion during this graphic adventure.
Another of the great ultra-known titles is Worms . In this game we took turns fighting against 1 or more players and, with our army of military worms, we had a clear objective: to annihilate everything that was put in front of us. This is the most classic version of the many updates that came later.
The Secret of Monkey Island
One of the most mythical sagas in all of history was the one that began with this title. In The Secret of Monkey Island we will have to help Guybrush Threepwood to become the king of pirates. Although of course, we will start with trying to become one of them by completing the three tests that they ask us: win a duel of swords and insults, steal a statue and find a buried treasure. This is just the beginning of an incredible adventure.
The mythical SEGA Sonic, the fastest hedgehog in the world, also accompanies us in this list with Sonic The Hedgehog the most classic installment of this game from which, later, version after version would come out in which they came to include different variants of it as their friends.
Another of the most classic titles is Pinball , which began its adventures in arcade games (with its physical version) and now reaches our teams through its online alternative. This was also included in old versions of Windows along with the pack of games available for free.
Who does not remember the hours we spent playing Pac-man . The coconut eater who had to get the highest possible score without being killed by the ghosts of the maze. And if things got complicated, he would catch one of the “fat” spots to run after them to devour them.
Aladdin was another of the great successes of classic games that began its adventures for the NES and, later, it was remastered for different consoles and devices. In this case we find the PC version, although the story is the same as in the Disney movie: kill Jafar, the royal vizier, to liberate the city of Agrabah.
As for mobile devices and other little powerful ones, we have the online version of Classic Minecraft . An alternative in which we are in creative mode, ending all the blocks in one fell swoop and in which we can build anything with the materials that we see in the bottom bar. Of course, with this version we can create a small server for other users to enter through the url that the same games general us

We turn now to those titles that you know when you start playing but, unfortunately, you have no idea when you will finish how addictive they are.
The first one is Helmetroyale.io . A mix between Battle Royale and a very Zelda aesthetic in which we will have to fight against the adversaries that we find with the weapons that are inside the chests. Choose the best pistol and equip yourself well to resist your opponents or, if you decide to hide, be careful when the limit approaches you because you will start to take damage.
Agar.io It is a very popular game in the online environment for a few years that became popular. We are a small virus that has to collect those little balls to continue growing and, when the time comes, devour other smaller viruses and prevent the larger ones from doing it with you.
In case of Hole.io it is very similar to the previous one. We are a black hole that has to absorb everything that is in its path (taking into account the size you have at all times) and try to survive from the attack of other holes before time runs out.
TagPro is a “capture the flag” style game in which we will fight with our team against people from all over the world with the same goal: to dominate the opposing team.
Fight to the death
We now turn to the games with more action, a fight to the death. In this list you have two of them quite interesting.
What would happen if Einstein and Pythagoras fight in a match? Well Science Kombat It will show you. In this game we will put face to face with great eminences of history such as: Darwin, Einstein, Tesla or Stephen Hawking, among others.

Certainly, Simcity it escapes a bit from the dynamics of the development of civilizations to reach an environment of growth of cities. This is one of its most classic versions in which we will have to start from 0 with our city and make it become the best version of itself. So, if you were looking for fights and wars, this may not be your game.
For motor junkies, there are also online titles of every kind imaginable. Here are 3 examples from the huge catalog available.
