But before getting into them, we would like to give an honorary mention to Wordle, which is also a browser based game.

Top 5 Free browser games for you to play in 2022

1. Catan

Developed by Catan GmbH, Catan is a classic board game. Released in 2017, the strategy game presents settlers establishing settlements on the island of Catan. Players need to build settlements, cities, roads and more in order to make the island fully functional. The game awards you points for certain achievements. Each settlement counts as one point, and each city counts as two. There are other milestones as well. The aim of the game is to reach 10 points before any other player. The game is like a medieval and more detailed version of Monopoly.

2, Pokemon Showdown

Developed by Zarel in 2011, Pokemon Showdown is one of the earliest browser games that still continues to remain popular. The game exclusively focuses on the battling element of the classic Pokemon game. The game is highly customizable, allowing players to choose the Pokemon, their attack sets as well as the items they carry. The strategy focused game allows you to fight other online players and the winner is decided by the player which can eliminate all the six Pokemon of the other player.


Developed by Matheus Valadares, this real-time action game requires fast reaction time and an eye for the kill. Player starts as a small circle in a large map which contains other players as well as colored dots. Eating the colored dots increases the size of your circle. You can also eat other players as long as you are larger than them. At the same time, a circle larger than you can eat and eliminate you from the game. The aim is to be the last circle in the game.

4. Town of Salem

If you liked Among Us, you will love this game. Developed by BlankMediaGames in 2014, the game randomly puts you in a town as either a neutral, a mafia or a townperson. Townpersons need to find and stop mafia members and mafia members need to kill as many neutrals as they can. There are other roles and abilities in the game that make this game very fun to play.

5. A Dark Room

If you like word-based strategy games or dungeon crawlers, then A Dark Room will be your go-to game.

To progress through the game, you need to equip your character with better weapons and armors.
