If you were around in the 1980s, then you would have seen the emergence of the very first arcade games. Space Invaders, Pac Man, Donkey Kong and the like are all classics that are still played today. But when you see newer flash versions of these games you will see just how much they have evolved from the original versions.
The wonder of modern technology has enabled us to reproduce these games in a lot more clarity. The audio is also much better and the graphics just brings these old games to life. The fact that we are still seeing these games, which are around 30 years old now, still being updated and re-released just shows how popular they have been all this time.
You can even play these games on mobile devices, so if you are still a Pac Man or Donkey Kong fan, then you will be amazed at just how good quality the mobile versions are. But the flash versions really do capture the essence of the games and reproduce that magic that lured everyone in when they first came out.
It is not just the old games that have benefited from flash. Many of the new games are run on flash too, and most are also of excellent quality. Although they are not as common now since the HTML5 platform came out, there are still some sites that just offer flash games and they are readily available online. You can still find a massive selection of them and many of them are free to play now as well, so you can get a lot to try, either on your computer or your mobile devices.
