10 Best Browser Games You Need to Try in 2023

What are the best browser games?

1. Prodigy Math

Prodigy Math is a hyper-engaging, fantasy-inspired MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) with millions of players. It’s dedicated to helping improve children’s math skills and confidence. As a young wizard, you traverse the worlds of Prodigy competing epic quests and battling bosses! To win, you must answer sets of questions that adapt to your math level. With every battle your wizard moves closer and closer toward unlocking endless magic and mystery.

2. Powerline.io

Remember playing Snake on the indestructible Nokia phone? In this version you’re not just a neon snake — you’re competing with other neon snakes for supremacy. This exciting gameplay makes it a real treat for kids who love some competition! Beam across the field to eat the cubes that appear when another snake dies and grow longer. But don’t run into other snakes or else you’ll turn into cubes and have to respawn in your original size. If you want to gain speed, slither alongside other neon snakes. This causes electrical impulses that give you speed which you can use to force other snakes to slither into you!

3. RuneScape

In January 2001, developer Jagex released RuneScape, a point-and-click MMORPG set in the vast, medieval fantasy realm of Gielinor. Take part in over 200 quests while you explore a world filled with diverse races and guilds all seeking power. You can choose the types of skills you want to train in: Combat, Artisan, Gathering, Support and Elite. As you level up, your skills will become more advanced which will ultimately help you complete your quests.

4. NoBrakes.io

Simply use your arrow keys to steer and you’re off to the races! NoBrakes.io is a multiplayer racing game where you reach checkpoints to gain a competitive advantage with power-ups that boost your speed or slow others down. Sounds simple, right? Yes, until you realize this race isn’t a conventional one. If you’re near the front of a line, for example, checkpoints can pop up behind you. So you need to be ready for anything! You can play this multiplayer browser game on your PC or as a mobile game in the Apple or Android app stores.

5. BrowserQuest

This browser game invites you to explore a digital world from your — you guessed it — browser. Step into the shoes of a young warrior in search of friends, adventure and treasure. Whether you defeat enemies alone or as a party is up to you. But don’t forget to collect the loot when you do! It will take you far in BrowserQuest.

6. Everybody Edits

Entrepreneur and developer Chris Benjaminsen created this real-time, multiplayer platform game. But the players are the ones who can build levels for others to try and complete. Although you don’t compete directly with other players, they’re in-game creations can still indirectly affect you. Since “everybody edits,” this unique browser game gives players two choices: 1) play the game or 2) play with the game.

7. AdventureQuest

AdventureQuest is a single-player RPG wherein you create a character, pick a class, and fight against hordes of monsters. Depending on your personality, you can choose to be a ninja, wizard, fighter, rogue, or paladin (to name just a few). The AdventureQuest world is filled with magical powers, hundreds of items and over 700 monsters. Take part in dozens of quests! The more you win, the stronger your character gets and the more you progress.

8. Pokemon Showdown

Children and grown-ups alike love this online battle simulator. It’s like playing the Pokémon video games without having to put in the work. No waiting to rest or level up — you just jump straight into battle. You can build a custom team if you have a preference for the Pokémon you want to use, or you can join a random one and battle with whatever you get. Instead of the goal to “catch ‘em all,” now you can beat ‘em all!

9. Neopets

In November 1999, game designers Adam and Donna Powell released arguably one of the best browser games: Neopets. Neopets is a virtual pet website where players can own virtual pets and care for them using neocash. 20 years later, Neopets still exists and is active thanks to its beloved events, dailies, pet customization and community.

10. Gartic.io

Remember playing pictionary or Draw Something? Similar to those games, you can sum up Gartic.io in three words: draw, guess, win. In this online drawing game, up to 10 people can play. At the start of every round one person will randomly draw a word and draw it, while everyone else has to try and guess the word correctly.
