4. FusionFall

FusionFall

FusionFall

FusionFall, offered by the Cartoon Network, takes cartoon characters and recreates them in an anime-type style and interactive environment. The game is geared towards younger age groups but is still mildly entertaining if you’re a fan of this type of gaming, although older players will likely not be entertained nearly as long as players who spend much of their time watching the Cartoon Network. Watch a quick overview video of the game.

5. Imperion

Imperion

Imperion

Imperion is a space-themed game based in the year 2137 where three species fight to dominate the universe. Players develop new technologies, space ships, buildings, etc. It seems to have some pretty good graphics and fun gameplay but was released in mid-2009, so it’s still a very new game.

6. Evony

Evony

Evony

You’re likely familiar with Evony’s web ads that seem to be just about everywhere and are rather controversial and relatively misleading. Aside from the sketchy advertising, this is actually a popular game allowing users to create cities and expand their territory. Users build armies and combat other players, also completing quests and other tasks. The game is supposed to be relatively slow paced and doesn’t require too much time so you’ll be able to play it between work breaks.

  • Price: Free / $4.99 per month
  • Requirements: Flash 10
  • Developer: Evony, LLC.

7. Free Realms

Free Realms

Free Realms

Free Realms, by Sony Online Entertainment, is a family-friendly fantasy game where users complete quests and explore different worlds, making friends (or enemies), playing minigames to advance and optionally combating other players. The game has a certain degree of social networking implemented, enabling users to chat and share media with other users.

8. zOMG!

zOMG!

zOMG!

zOMG! (yes, the exclamation point is part of the name) is an animated anime style MMO, brought to you by Gaia Online. I haven’t brought myself to try it yet as I’m not sure what to think of the official trailer but it’s apparently a quite popular and entertaining browser-based game.

9. DarkOrbit

Dark Orbit

DarkOrbit

Dark Orbit is a 2D Sci-fi game based in space where players battle, trade and mine for resources. When joining, players must choose from one of three DarkOrbit companies and fight for control over the universe. At the time of writing this, over 30K players were online out of nearly 35 million registered. If you’re into space themed games, this would be one to check out.

  • Price: Free
  • Requirements: Flash
  • Developer: Bigpoint

10. Sherwood Dungeon

Sherwood Dungeon

Sherwood Dungeon

Sherwood Dungeon is a game where players defend their honor in combat against other players. Players complete quests, explore six different themed islands and complete hundreds of levels where treasure can be collected and traded with merchants. As players complete quests, experience points are accumulated and they’re able to purchase items such as weapons and shields for their characters.

    Dofus … 2.0 just launched and it rocks.

  • Darth Vader

    Two words: EVE Online. Though it is threatened by Icelands transformation into Mordor, it’s still absolutely stunning game when you get into it!

  • That guy

    Dofus Is not a web app, you download their client. Same with Eve….

    • martin

  • boomboom

    lord of ultima is my recomendation

  • Kurt

    Are you idiots? Dofus online isnt a web game nor runes of magic… read the topic before you comment. Web games are games that can be played only using internet, no need download of clients or patching.

  • lovestochill

    Hmmm I wouldn’t be so sure about Dark Orbit being free anymore…. its more like spend money to be good which is really dumb(x100).

  • Kaor

    Actually, Evony is really a phishing site in disguise. The “game” they show is really some Civ 3 knock-off.

  • SOLAR

    WARTUNE, Wings Of Destiny, Broken Realm

    Einherjar from Japan is also a good F2P turn-based web game for this kind.
