The games available belong to the most varied categories: from puzzle games to action games, from platformers to card games.
The only thing to keep in mind is the fact that all video games are in Flash so to be able to play it you must use a browser with incorporated technology, as in the case of Google Chrome (if you don’t know how to download and install it, you can consult mine dedicated tutorial) or download and install the plugin Flash Player (if you don’t know how to do it, you can follow the instructions I have provided you with in my article on the subject).
