Bro.wser/Mo.bile Ga.mes Thread
There's a Console Thread, a PC Thread, but where does the lowly browser gamer get a fix? This is where. Also, mobile games.

Discuss iPhone, Android, Flash, HTML5, Unity, etc. games here.

By the way, this place is called Browser/Mobile games

so what about browser games ? 
They Suck Even More HTH. 
Browser games have largely died I feel like... everyone moved to the iphone app store, and then everyone moved to steam and now every console has an app store for indie games. That's where small developers put their effort now.

And mobile games became mostly F2P / pay to win bullshit.

There are probably still some gems out there but it's getting rarer. 
F2P / Freemium / P2W / Paywall / Grindwall is simultaneously the mobile game industry modus operandi and the problem that makes it fundamentally shit.

There are some good free-ish ones tho. I'm back playing Eternium which is about as good as mobile-level RPG-lites get, and has no ads and no pay/grindwalls, you can get upgrades a lot quicker spending money and the game encourages you to do so whenever it can, but it doesn't force it by any means. 
Don't forget BUY CHEAP $TUFF spams you with WATCH DUMB 15s VIDEO ads all over the WE HAVE WHAT YOU WANT place.

I swear, I'm about done with mobile games. Really PO-ed by the lot of them. The rare gems are getting rarer. 
Yup Proper Intolerant Of That Shite Too. 
I would so much rather drop a fiver initially and only pay for cosmetics / bonus content. 
Browser Is The Main Baddie In The Mario Games 

A platformer on a Möbius strip. 
Controls From Xash3d 
Idk if it is interesting for anybody but I have asked one of the Xash3d creators to help me with touch controls for my dp mod. And he added convenient controls from Xash3d.

I had a video in VK, but you can not watch it unless you are registered there, so here is just a screenshot from that video:

Also tried to ride a tank in airquake mod with those controls: 
Commander Keen!!!!!! 
Is really good. Dungeon crawler, cool art, lots of "figure it out on your own" gameplay quirks, very very addictive.


Snake + Tetris With The Same Inputs 
So ARPGs Might Be A Legit Thing... 
Not only have we got Diablo Immoral, but Grinding Gears have waded in and showed ActiBlizz how to do a mobile game announcement right:

1. Announce highly desired POE2 sequel.
2. Have good track record in doing freemium style game very well.
3. Slag off entire mobile gaming industry when announcing game:

The original Path of Exile is coming to mobile devices, developer Grinding Gear Games announced on Friday, but without the “bullshit trends” and “evil garbage” present in modern mobile games.

At Exilecon, Grinding Gear’s fan gathering, the studio revealed “an experimental version of Path of Exile for mobile devices” that the studio says is perfect for bite-sized action gameplay. “This is a complete Path of Exile game experience with no pay-to-win elements and is being developed in-house,” Grinding Gear Games said.

In the video it looks absolutely good on the small screen - just like Diablo Immoral does too. 
Flash Games Archive 
This is a pretty cool project.

Flashpoint is basically a downloadable archive of flash games, which are going to become unplayable in the browser as flash becomes unsupported.

I haven't tried it yet but I was really into flash games back in the golden era of the late 2000s, so it will be cool to have a more permanent/portable version of some of those games. 
Newgrounds? That's the place I had my Flash games fix. 
well that's cool, i didn't know that newgrounds had their own standalone player to solve the same problem.
