Ah, the internet. The world’s most useful resource for everything, especially… games! Online games are as good now as they’ve ever been, with a wide range of multi-player experiences to be had. But it wasn’t always like that. Today we’re going to take a look at some online game classics that you can no longer play online. Some of these games were ahead of their time, and others were amazing concepts that were just too niche for their own good. Some were simply victims of copyright disputes. So sit back and enjoy this trip down memory lane – if you catch yourself nostalgic for any of these titles (and why wouldn’t you be?!), don’t forget that many of them have now been released on other platforms so you can relive the experience from your childhood all over again!
Adobe Flash is a browser plug-in used to play games and watch videos on the web. It was popular in the early 2000s, but since then has been replaced by HTML5 as the standard for online gaming.
Many social media sites had Adobe Flash integration, including Facebook and MySpace. Many of these older games are no longer available because they could not be updated or ported to newer browsers.

Boomshine was a game that you could play without registering. It was simple, but addictive. You had to pop as many bubbles as you could in a row. The more you popped, the higher your score would be and the more points you would earn. While it might seem easy at first, each round got progressively harder until there were no more bubbles left to pop!
The game was most popular among tween and teen girls because of its bright colors and upbeat music!

Desktop Tower Defense
This game is a tower defense game that was developed by Armor Games. It was shut down in 2015, and played on many platforms including PC, Mac, Linux and mobile devices. The gameplay involved building a maze of towers to stop waves of enemies from destroying your base. If you were successful you could then progress through the levels until you reached the boss at the end with an epic battle!
The graphics were simple but stunning, with realistic looking water effects that gave it great depth when combined with the background music which could be heard throughout each level (and still makes me want to play it now!). This game was free to play and had no ads or pay-to-win features as such—it was just pure fun!
Escape the Room
Escape the Room is a game where you are locked in a room, and have to find your way out. You have to solve puzzles and find items, some of which will be used together to open doors or get past obstacles. There is only so much time for you to solve the puzzle before your character runs out of air (or whatever else kills them).
You can play this game with friends, or strangers online who you never meet again.
Hedgehog Launch is a puzzle game where you launch hedgehogs into the air to collect stars. You control the direction that your hedgehog flies and can also add more hedgehogs by clicking on them, which creates a chain reaction of launches. It was created by CodingMonkeys and released in 2009.

Line Rider is a game where you draw a line for a sled to follow. You can use the mouse or your finger to control the rider and jump off ramps in this extremely addictive game.
Line Rider was created by Jari Pajunen in 2007, who wanted to create a simple “run-of-the-mill” browser game that he could share with his friends on the internet (his username is still used as the name of Line Rider’s main character). The game quickly became popular thanks to its simple gameplay mechanics, which were easy enough for anyone to pick up but difficult enough not to get bored after ten minutes of playtime.
The game has been downloaded over 100 million times since its original release, making it one of the most successful games ever created—and definitely worth playing if you’re looking for something fun and nostalgic!
