Treasure trove of over 38,000 Flash games available for download

Along with Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Apple have already laid out plans for retiring Adobe flash from their respective browsers. You can download the launcher for free here.

If you've been on the internet for long enough, you may have fond memories of playing Flash games for hours on end - honestly, I hate to think how many hours I spent trying to get a Yeti to catapult a penguin as far as it possibly could.

It should be noted that many of these games are copyrighted and have not given express permission to BlueMaxima to archive and offer them for offline play.

To help prevent the permanent deaths of over 36,000 Flash games, a new project called Flashpoint has been started to help save these games from disappearing forever. These three programs work in conjunction to "pretend to be the internet" since almost all the flash games need a proper server to run.

Normally, these games would be downloaded as you play them but in the case of Flashpoint, there is the option to just download and store everything locally.

Once installed, users can scroll through all the available games and double-click on the game to launch it in launched, the game will open in a bundled Adobe Flash Player client as seen below.

After Adobe announced the end of Flash support back in 2017, many big companies made the switch to Unity or HTML5, but there are still a lot of games that will be lost forever at the end of 2020.

We always believe that the emulation of dying games is important for the preservation of gaming history so that tomorrow's young generation can play and experience it.
