WHO ELSE MISSES FLASH GAMES!?

Posted by adrien;)β™‘

Forum: Games

so, as many of u probably know, adobe flash officially ended back in january, so almost 4 months ago. this resulted in many online games ran by adobe flash ending and not being accessible anymore. so sad!!


like many ppl who were growing up, whether it was in the 2000s or the 2010s (i grew up in the late 2000s and early 2010s), flash games were a HUGE part of my childhood back in the day! many of the gaming websites that i was obsessed w/ consisted of disney, poptropica, cartoon network, nickelodeon, gamepost, club penguin, cool math games, and miniclip. i also remember playing a few bratz, barbie, my little pony g3, and polly pocket games as a child, very bizarre ik!!

many ppl who grew up in the early 2000s remember many y2k gaming websites such as addicting games, neopets, everything girl, gaia online, dollz mania, webkinz, and girls go games. unfortunately, i was never able 2 live up 2 those gaming sites, as they must've slipped under my radar as a kid, so i never rlly had a fondness 4 those websites.

but anyway, back on topic, flash has disappeared and it is v v disappointing. online gaming will never b the same ever again, i don't think, unfortunately.

however, this doesn't mean that flash gaming is over. hopefully an alternative 2 flash will come out soon, and we'll get 2 relive our childhood again @ sum point.

thanks 4 listening 2 me rant, and i wanna know what u guys think? do u think an alternative 2 flash will come our way? if not, is there a way 2 access our fav childhood games? if so, let me know. we will find a way 2 relive our childhood, i just know it!

ilusm!! πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

You can install Ruffle as an extension to your browser if you want to play Flash Player games again. I've done exactly that :).

There are ways to play flash games without flash support. I use the Newgrounds flash emulator and download them to my pc. You can still play games on your browser that uses the HTML format and they're just as good. Some are even better. I'd check out Itch.io and maybe even Game Jolt to continue playing games on your browser, but there are some intriguing indie games to download, too.


Anyways, I too miss the early days of playing flash games if only for the excitment of the possibilities. Ah, to be naive of the future again.

Yeah flash games were amazing, they mostly got killed by mobile gaming. I really prefer times when it was less about ads and money and more about pure creativity and fun. People created amazing stuff considering how limited the technology was.

I miss Flash games too. They all got killed for the sake of some 7-year-old kid installing Among Us.

Oof I’m late to this forum, it was posted 2 months ago. XvX

Some classic Flash games still work like a lot of Homestar Runner games and the helicopter game.

I really miss playing flash games especially during school. Anytime I was allowed on the computer and the teacher wasn't watching I would be on coolmath or miniclip

I have many great memories of flash games! Some folks have posted some of the workarounds that enable continued play..... its not perfect but thankfully it helps. Many games have been converted to HTML5, but it is certainly true that many games have likely been left behind as a result of the retirement of flash.

There is a program for Windows called Flashpoint Infinity or something like that. It lets you play flash games without the use of the a browser. If I remember right it allows you to search and download the flash games to your computer. Not sure if it is legal or not though. o_o

Whoever said Ruffle, yes. Newgrounds currently uses a Ruffle and Newgrounds player combination. Flash ain’t dead :P at least with Adobe it is. But Ruffle even works on mobile.

Ruffle's not quite there yet, doesn't support all the actionscript and stuff like that... but it's getting there :) Flashpoint Infinity is a lifesaver though. I think preservation of this stuff is really important. There's this Youtuber, Nick Robinson, that did a video on this one game 'mission in snowdriftland', that I really like. It's also now available on Flashpoint https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EphH4hwkr2g

sooo many of my fav childhood games are either gone or were remade but are now defunct (for example ourworld, which hosted a bunch of flash games and playing them was the main source of leveling up so no one plays it anymore)

I agree with everyone promoting Flashpoint, that stuffs legit it allows you to play a lot of those old flash games, unfortunately they don't play Nitrome games, but this also means Nitrome is planning something with them.

OH MY GOD nitrome games can be so personal.. i remember playing them in the moshi monsters flash collection and i was so bad at all of them but i adored the music so i still kept playing them (especially thin ice)

i also remember being on miniclip all the time and i consistently only played like 5 games on there but i loved them all so much. with html5 browser games CAN still be made, so its not like the next gen is gonna completely miss out on those things or that those websites are now gone. but flash games definitely need to be preserved (and i know they are i already have flashpoint downloaded)!!

also i cant @ people on this but replying to tuezday, jmkit ARE working on porting their games over to html5 and some of them are still playable.. but yeah currently most of their games cant be for now, im gonna miss their giant scenemaker for awhile X(. jmkit was a SUUPER big part of my life, i love that site so much
