The Best Browser/Mobile Games To Play On The Move

You might like to play games on your console or PC, but that’s not always an option. Indeed, that’s one of the primary reasons why so many people invested in the PS Vita in the first place. It’s always good to have access to games when you’re taking a long trip. The PS Vita may be gone, but we still have our mobiles and laptops, and with so many games available on those devices, there’s no reason for anyone to be without gaming fun for too long! So long as you have an internet connection, you’ll be good to go. Below, we’ll run through some of the best games you can play within the browser of your laptop or smartphone.


We tend to think of browser games as being something of a new invention, but that’s not true. They’ve been around for ages! Most of these games are nothing more than footnotes in the history of the internet by this point, but some have hung on and continue to be popular. This is the case with RuneScape, a relatively straightforward MMORPG game that offers more than 200 quests. More than enough for a short trip away from your computer, in other words!


If you’re of a certain age, you’ll surely recall Snake, the awesome, classic game that Nokia included on a bunch of its devices. It seems positively quaint by this stage, though we bet more than a fair few of us would love to play again, for old times’ sake. Well, you can — just in a slightly different form. Powerline is based on Snake (and largely plays the same), with a few additions that make it a more engaging game. The next time you’re looking for a fun game, point your browser to


Looking for a game that’ll keep you engaged and test your critical thinking skills? Then you can try one of the most popular titles. Blackjack, which was created in the 17th century, is one of the most mind-exercising games. The objective of the game is to make 21 or get as close to 21 as possible so that the dealer does not beat you. Previously the game only existed in land-based casinos, but today we also have blackjack online, which has evolved through different variants providing the game with much more richness to the users. An ideal way to spend a long train journey.

Adventure Quest

Looking to battle some monsters instead? Then Adventure Quest has you covered. This is a simple yet oddly engaging RPG game that has more detail than you would typically expect from a browser game. You get to choose the type of fighter you want to be (we’re partial to the ninja) and go head to head with more than 700 monsters. It’s not the most relaxing game, but it sure is fun.

Pokémon Showdown

All Pokémon games can be fun, but they do require some work — and in many cases, you’ll need special equipment. So we’re happy to see Pokémon Showdown, a quick and easy game that requires no special skills whatsoever. There’s nothing special you need to do. Just head to the main page, click battle and begin playing. If you’re looking to do a little more than battle random opponents, then you can take advantage of the ‘team builder’ function, which allows you to assemble your dream team of Pokémon.


And finally, there’s the OG awesome arcade game, Pac-Man! Despite being decades old — it was one of the first massively popular games — it still holds a pretty special place in our hearts. It’s always fun to play, after all! And you don’t need to find an arcade to get your fill of the game, either. All you need to do is visit the Google homepage, type ‘Pac-Man,’ and click search. You’ll be presented with an in-browser version of the game that functions exactly the same as the original. Perfect!
