On a recent Friday night, I headed over to Kongregate.com, a super-popular Flash gaming destination boasting thousands of free games powered by Adobe's popular authoring tool. With more than 34,000 users logged-in with access to nearly 38,000 free games, the place was jumping.
As you know, our Droid phones are Flash-friendly. But until now, accessing Flash games through our phone browsers was difficult, at best. Enter Kongregate Arcade. More than 300 of the best games from Kongregate's massive collection can be found inside this gem, with the added secret sauce of being able to log-in to your existing kongregate.com user account to share and rate each title.
Droid owners can instantly unlock mobile-only badges, high scores, ratings and comments, and even play the games offline. This magic is possible because of the app's seamless ability to store the Flash files on your device, and play them back inside your Android web browser, which is working seamlessly in the background.
The real impact of this app is this: If you're looking for a massive collection of free games to play anywhere, anytime on your phone, there's no better app than Kongregate Arcade. With 300 games in more than a dozen genres to choose from, you'll be shooting, running, strafing, puzzling, strategizing, and attacking these titles with gusto for many moons to come.
Don't miss Vector Runner (think Battlezone), G-Switch and Screw the Nut. And if you happen upon a less than stellar offering, feel free to rate it as such. In the same way, be sure to rate your favorites highly so they'll pop up on your personal best-of lists. Another way to dodge the bad games? Select "Staff Favorites" from the menu. You'll be glad you did.
As if you needed one more reason to install this app: You'll receive 50 points in your Kongregate web account upon installation. What are you waiting for?
