Simplicity is one of the key elements of successful online games. The mix of fun graphics, sound effects and basic gameplay is hypnotic and habit-forming in the best possible way. Are you new to online gaming? Here are 5 of the best online titles for beginners:
Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 is a free multi-playing, role-play game. It’s easy to learn, and offers challenges for both new players and seasoned gamers. Guild Wars 2 is awash with colour, detail, and dynamic gameplay that’s bound to make you – like millions of other beginners – fall in love with the wonders of online gaming.
Chimgam is an incredibly simple game in terms of both graphics and gameplay. You play the little chap at the bottom of the screen. Your job is to move from left to right with your mouse to avoid poo falling from a bare bum above you. Childish? Certainly. Hilarious? Absolutely! This is one of the barmiest games we’ve ever come across, but also one of the funniest and most addictive.
Desktop Tower Defense
Desktop Tower Defense [sic] is an aptly-named tower-defence game. You have a map (in the shape of an office desk) with ‘in’ and ‘out’ doors. Your job is to prevent waves of your enemies or ‘creeps’ from reaching a designated point on the map. There are three levels: ‘Easy’, ‘Medium’, and ‘Hard’. ‘Easy’ will provide enough of a challenge for beginners. Yet you’ll need to be expert to beat the game at the near-impossible ‘Hard’ level.
With its addictive gameplay and charming hand-drawn graphics, it’s no wonder that Desktop Tower Defense had been played nearly 16 million times within 4 months of its release in March 2007.
Tomb Raider – Secret of the Sword
Tomb Raider – Secret of the Sword is an online slot that you can play in either cash-play or free-play mode on Play Cosmo. Whether you want to learn the ropes for serious gaming, or just play for fun, this slot is perfect. Its host of scatters, free spins, wilds, and an entertaining Lara Croft theme give you all you need to get started. It also offers 3 additional bonus games to boost your chances of a big win.
The Helicopter Game
The Helicopter Game has one-dimensional graphics that quickly bring to mind games your dad used to play on the ZX Spectrum in the 1980s. But while it may look basic and offer even simpler gameplay, that’s all part of the fun. The aim is to click your mouse rapidly to stop the helicopter from crashing. It may sound easy – yet it’s anything but! This is one of the most addictive games we’ve ever played.
