Alien Hominid

Flash games have been around for as long as most of us can remember. The popularity of flash games exploded for their wide availability, minimal hardware requirements, their entertaining pick-up-and-play nature, and of course, the price tag. Anyone can jump into a free flash game and play it without having to insert any disks or walk through any steps. They are great for passing time and are fun for everyone.

Out of the thousands of flash games we have played over the years, these 20 flash games stand out to us at Scumlabs as some of the most entertaining, artistic, and unique flash games that we have seen to date.

We have not listed these games in any particular order. If we missed any of your favorites, feel free to flame us in the comments below! All of these games listed are available here on Scumlabs; just use the search bar at the top to find them and play for free.

1. Madness Accelerant

Madness Accelerant

It’s games like Madness Accelerant that continuously push the boundaries of flash game performance and graphics. Madness Accelerant is simply breath-taking, not to mention very enjoyable and entertaining to play. This fun shooting game has excellent music, sounds, and art.

2. Go Go Plant 2

Go Go Plant 2

Go Go Plant 2 is a fantastic action game with some of the best sounds I’ve ever heard in a flash game. Just going through the menu and into the game is like getting hit with a whirlwind of awesomeness. The game itself is very fun and has a unique style. This is one of our favorites.

3. Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense is one of those games you can literally spend hours playing. If you are a fan of Warcraft 3 or other tower defense games, this game will be one of your favorites. Stack up against the enemy invasion and take them down with cleverly placed turrets and defense mechanisms.

4. Bubble Tanks 2

Bubble Tanks 2

This is one of the few games that we’ve played for hours and hours. There are just so many ways to play this game; the replay value is incredible. Go around as a bubble tank and destroy other tanks to grow. As you evolve, you can build up your weapons to your liking.

5. Alien Hominid

Alien Hominid

It almost goes without saying that Alien Hominid is one of the most popular flash games ever created. Created by Newgrounds in 2002, Alien Hominid exploded and gained massive popularity. Alien Hominid is one of the few flash games that have been made into a console title, and is currently a game for the Xbox, Playstation 2, Gamecube, and the Gameboy Advance.

6. Plazma Burst

Plazma Burst

Plazma Burst is one of the best flash game shooters we’ve played to date. The gameplay mechanics feel fluid and realistic, and the guns are very fun to play with. This game is challenging and has over a dozen levels and multiple enemy types.

7. Morplee


If you’re a fan of WariorWare, you’re going to love this game. Play mini-game after mini-game in rapid succession to earn as high as a score as possible, while protecting the earth from those pesky space invaders! This game is unique and puts a smile on my face; some of them are hilarious.

8. Moby Dick The Video Game

Moby Dick The Video Game

Take a classic story, simple-but-addicting gameplay mechanics, and a fun and cartoonish art style, and you get Moby Dick The Video Game. This game is one of our favorites; become the terror of the sea by eating sailors and growing as large as you can possibly get without dying.

9. Raiden X

Raiden X

If you’re a fan of Raiden and Raiden II, you will love Raiden X. Choose a jet, collect power-ups, and obliterate your opponents with overwhelming firepower. This is a very colorful arcade-style game that has excellent replay value; by far one of our favorites.

10. Amorphous+

Amorphous +

Pick up your broadsword and start hacking away at Glooples! For a game with such a simple appearance, Amorphous+ is a very complex flash game, if you invest some time into it. With close to a hundred unlockable achievements, dozens of enemies (most of which you’ll probably never even get to), and tons of wicked upgrades liek armor and weapons, this flash game is by far one of our favorite flash games of all time. Give it a try.
