Computer games can be an entertaining way to spend free time. And you don't need an Xbox or a Playstation to enjoy playing games. There are many games online that are fun, simple and free; however, a slow Internet connection can limit you to more basic games. But flash games load before they play, work well with slow Internet connections and give you a wide array of games to play.
Helicopter is a flash-based game that is simple and fast to load, making it perfect for slow Internet connections. You control a helicopter and simply press the left mouse button to give the helicopter fuel to lifts into the air. Letting go of the button causes the helicopter to plummet. You must navigate the craft through a series of obstacles, with the goal to beat your previous best score, which is expressed as the distance you travel before crashing your aircraft.
Stick Dude Killing Arena
While not necessarily appropriate for children, Stick Dude Killing Arena delivers what is promised: stick figures trying to kill each other. You control one stick figure and run left and right and jump to clear objects and avoid bullets as you assassinate your stick figure adversaries using the mouse button as an attack function. SDKA is ready to play in its entirety once the brief load is completed, making it ideal for slow connections.
Building Blaster is a physics-based puzzle game where you are given a structure and three explosive charges you can position anywhere on the structure. You can set timers to explode the charges in a certain sequence. The goal is to destroy as much of the structure as possible. Despite the violent-sounding premise, the graphics are cartoonish, and the game is a puzzle at heart. It loads quickly and only requires a mouse to play, making it ideal for slower connections. Building Blaster 2 is also available online.
