2048

I am pretty sure most of you have played or at least heard about the popular puzzle game 1024 on mobile platforms, where the players have to connect the tiles to solve the puzzle. 2048, as the name already suggests, is a copy of the game that takes it to a whole new level.

This game is developed using JavaScript, CSS, and HTML and you can play it online with your score being visible to everyone who plays the game. It’s a pretty tricky game that keeps you hooked for hours while helping you keep your brain sharp.

HexGL

The next game on this list is probably one of the best racing games made using JavaScript. It’s a sci-fi racing game with futuristic graphics and flying vehicles where you race against other players in this fast-paced thriller.

The graphics look great and the gameplay is also pretty fun, it provides the classic racing experience that a lot of players still crave. Best part? The whole project is open-source, in case you want to learn the ropes of game development using JavaScript.

MK.js

The next game on this list is inspired by one of my very favorite arcades fighting games title Mortal Kombat. This game features a number of characters from the original title offering the same combos and moves that are used in the original game as well. The game has been optimized to run online within a limited space.

Both the graphics and the gameplay also remain pretty detailed, which is very impressive for a game that’s supposed to run on the browser online with three different modes, single-player, two-player, and online mode. This title is a great example of games that can be developed with the power of JavaScript. But if you haven’t played the original title yet, I recommend you do so and there are quite some cheap deals out there on the latest Mortal Kombat X keys.

Tower Building Game

The next game on this list is inspired by one of my favorite childhood games, where you have to perfectly time your drops to make a skyscraper from small building blocks. The more accurately you drop them at the center of the building, the more reward you earn.

But the further you drop your blocks, the more likely it is that your building will fall off. It is super simple yet very addictive, it makes you feel like you HAVE to nail the tallest building as fast as you can. This game is also written in JavaScript with the help of HTML5.

Clumsy Bird

Inspired by the very popular flappy bird game, we have Clumsy Bird, a clone that managed to stay afloat and get quite a few eyeballs looking at it. This game looks pretty awesome with the cute little characters and the simple controls. Anyone can play this game from literally anywhere and it’s completely free.

Clumsy bird also uses JavaScript for all the game mechanics combined with HTML5 to get that smooth look and feel. This game is perfect if you want to kill time dodging those walls as you try to fly further.

Ancient Beast

Moving on to one of the complex games made with JavaScript, we have Ancient Beast. It’s a tactical turn-based combat game, where you have to fight a number of ancient beasts using your strategic skills. The game offers a number of different moves and special powers that you can use to defeat the monsters.

There’s also a shop where you can buy different things to help you win these intense tactical fights to progress through the storyline. This game goes on to show what you can achieve with the power of JavaScript.

JavaScript Pseudo 3D Racer

While we are talking about racing games, I can’t let this one slide. JavaScript Pseudo 3D Racer as the name suggests is game made with JavaScript that is not really commercial but it looks pretty awesome. It follows the classic racing games that we used to play in our childhood.

It also offers the same classic driving mechanics and comes with a number of settings for us to play around with. The game is developed using the latest JavaScript technology and works best with modern browsers.

Pocket Island

If you love games like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing, I am pretty sure you would also love this one. Pocket Island is a gorgeous farming simulator title that features cute little characters and a vast world for the players to explore.

This is a perfect game for those who want to escape the harsh realities of life and experience the pleasant world of this Pocket Island. This title has been developed by Wooga using JavaScript. It’s a free alternative to other popular life sim games however, you can get some cheap deals for Stardew Valley key as well.

This list cannot be completed without a challenging puzzle game and this one comes with an interesting story as well. You wake up on an abandoned, broken-down space station and your only task is to repair it within the given time in order to survive.

As for the control, this game can be played by both mouse and touch. In the menu, there are additional difficulty levels, as well as the colorblind mode and inverted control choices. This game is pretty interesting and all the challenges that it has to offer will keep you hooked to the screen for hours.

Konnect

While we are on the topic of puzzle games, the next one on this list is just as challenging but takes a rather simplistic approach towards the gameplay. You have to connect nodes in a way that satisfies the puzzle. The more nodes there are in the game, the harder it is to solve the puzzle.

The more you play the more addictive it gets! It’s a great choice for those who want to keep their brain sharpened up while not having to worry about the large size or high-speed connectivity.
