Each decade has its own fashion. We had fashion for board games, console games, for smartphone and now we have a great return of browser games. Many are HTML5-based and need a decent browser, and some still need Flash. All are entertaining to the level you’ll set fire to your console and live life entirely inside a browser.
Tower Defense is best played in the browser
Maybe hey’re not quite that good, but if you can’t waste an insane number of hours playing these fab games, it must be because you hate fun itself. It is worth knowing, that a browser game is a computer game that is played over the Internet using a web browser. The creation of such games usually involves use of standard web technologies as a frontend and other technologies to provide a backend. HTML5 or Flash games include all video game genres and can be single-player or multiplayer. Browser games are also portable and can be played on multiple different devices, web browsers, and operating systems.
Tower defense games are what many in the industry would call an acquired taste. The TD is best played in the browse and at the most basic level, they operate on the same concept: The gamer has a central point to defend, a bunch of turrets to construct, and waves upon waves of enemies to defeat.
Which browser is best for tower defense games?
Many users are playing Flash games via their browser and not many people know which the best browser that can be used for playing Flash games is …Chrome.
Google Chrome, then, is by far the most used browser, accounting for well over half of web traffic, followed by Safari in a distant second place. Firefox comes in third, with the combined IE & Edge fourth and is also the only major browser based on open-source code. Google releases the Chromium code as open source, and there are other browsers based on Chromium. Opera and Vivaldi are examples. However, Google adds proprietary code to produce Chrome, and others may do the same. Chrome browser comes with Flash integrated and it is quite safe from online attacks. Firefox and Opera have similar performances, so if you don’t like Chrome, then you can try out the other two mentioned browsers.
