You’re in luck, I’m here to tell you a thing or two about it.
Flash games are basically games on your internet browser that require flash player to be installed on your computer for them to function normally. They are usually 2-Dimensional sidescrolling or puzzle games but recently, flash games have had 3D improvements. Yes, it’s just that simple but what’s to like about them? Flash games are mostly made by game enthusiasts or non-mainstream developers all over the worldwide web.
Flash games offer a wide range of genres that could knock you off of your seat. From simple puzzles to online role playing games with really cute characters of your choice. But beware, even simple 2D games like these may get you hooked for sure.
There are a lot of sites that offer a lot of options for casual gamers such as addictinggames.com and miniclip.com but one site booming right now is Kongregate.com where you can create your own account to record achievements in selected games or even high scores for competitive gamers! It also has a special feature where you get to collect companions every week that are called Kongpanions. These kongpanions are cute pet like creatures that exist only in Kongregate. They are now integrated in a flash game called Sandbox Hero that give out in game bonuses depending on the kongpanions you have.
This feature is unique to Kongregate.com that makes it climb the popularity ladder with regards to flash game platform sites. And did I mention that these kongpanions come in two forms? Yes! Your kongpanions can either be just the normal ones or shiny depending on your commitment to the site. Why, you ask? Well, the achievements in the site are not just for show. they collect points for your experience and leveling up your account, AND achievements for the day reward you with the kongpanions. Keep accomplishing achievements for the day for five days in a week and you’ll get the special shiny edition of the said kongpanion.
Don’t you underestimate the power of these shiny kongpanions. They have better statistics than their normal counterpart that will help you ease out of the Sandbox Hero game. As of current, this is the only game that incorporates kongpanions but the site is openly cooperating with developers world wide to give them opportunity to market their games and at the same time put these kongpanions to good use and not just for display.
