Types of online games. What are online games?


Online games are computer games that use a continuous Internet connection.

Let's analyze what online games are. There are several varieties of such games.



Browser games


Browser games are online games where browsers are operating shells for such games or serve as containers that host virtual machines that run the game's code, such as Flash, Shockwave, Java, and the like.


Such games are most often casual (see below) due to the lack of procedures for installing them on the PC.


Browser games can be:


-     Free

-     Shareware

-     Paid.


The opportunity to play for free is provided in most cases at 918Kiss-malaysia.net. But games are the motivation to fork out for different services within them.



Client games


Another large group consists of client games.This game uses a special client program written specifically for it or for a group of similar games. In a nutshell, client games are games that are embedded in some programs, for example, in ICQ.

Some browser games can be played not through a browser, but with the help of a client program.



MUD game


MUD games are multiplayer text-based computer games. There are elements of hack-and-slash (literally "cut and cut" – games, the content of which is identified with the name), role-playing and text games, and there is always a chat.



Casual game


Casual games are called quite simple due to the structure and short duration of the game. Usually, the beginning and the end of such game occur during one session in the World Wide Web. These include various quests, games "Three in a row" (Tetris, etc.), all kinds of computer board games: cards, solitaire, chess, checkers, backgammon, puzzles, etc.; arcade games, shooters, economic games and strategies. Only one user can play casual games in most cases.
