The Genre’s of Flash Games

What types of flash games are out there? I mean they’re the same as genre games in consoles and computers, right? Well, yes and no. There are some sub-genre games that fall only under flash games because it’s a basic style. Like Tank Wars and Kitten Cannon are sub-genre’s simply because they don’t fall under the basic genres. So, without further ado let’s get into some of the genre’s that are flash specific. 

Simple Escape Games

This genre died out from consoles since crash and Spyro left us on the original PlayStation. However, this game style for flash is more like the old super Mario. Where you can run, jump, and duck. Simple to play and intricate to design. This has been on the rise in the past few years, and it’s because of how popular Mario used to be. Sort of piggybacking on the success of the Super Mario Bros. but the kids of the parents that loved these games are now playing them. This sub-genre is so popular it is the number one category on many sites. Search it and see for yourself.

Distance Games

Distance games are one of the most fun sub-genre games to play. Whether you shoot for distance, golf for distance, or hit a player that’s on the other side of the screen. Shooting from distance is fun, but the more popular style of this game is hitting a player from distance. You take turns throwing or shooting things at each other by taking turns. It’s kind of like battle ship, but with physics. You have to find the right height and angle to hit the other person on the other side before they hit you. This game is addicting and can be played for hours. You have been warned! 

Upgrade Games

Upgrade games are taking the flash games world by storm. Whether it be online in web browsers, Facebook or mobile. Everyone seems to be playing this genre. Whether you know what it is or not you’ll know after this section. An upgrade game is a game in which you need to level up and upgrade your player or self. This includes many games like Candy Crush, Baseball Boy, Idle Miner, and other games where the sole focus is to upgrade your player stats and items. 

Tower Defense Games

This is another hot genre that is only on flash and app games. In this style you hold the area of a defense zone. You start with a base or a home area and you fight to survive whatever comes your way. Games like Archer, Zombie Defense, and Last Shelter, this is a great genre and will promise to keep you entertained for at least awhile. 

Final Thoughts

There are a lot more genres out there, and even more sub-genres to explore. However, there are a lot of games that play well and aren’t genre specific or are multiple genres in one game. Those games are great to. So if you’re looking for fun games today, try any flash game that is in the Upgrade, Distance, Tower Defense, and Simple Escape genres.
