Top 5 great games at Chrome Store: Angry Birds, Fancy Pants Adventure World 2, Cargo Bridge, Steambirds Survival, and Canvas Rider

If you use Chrome, head out to the ‘Chrome App Store’ and get the following classic free games:
(1) Angry Birds, (2) Fancy Pants Adventure: World 2, (3) Cargo Bridge, (4) Steambirds: Survival, (5) Canvas Rider

There are tons of free games on the internet, of course, but if you do not want to waste time looking for them and just want some cool, fun games to sink your teeth into, consider the ones on this list. These are casual games that are guaranteed to satisfy; just go ahead and grab them, you will not be sorry that you did.

Chrome apps vs. flash games: although that you could play most of these as browser independent flash games somewhere on the internet, in some cases there is an advantage in installing these as Chrome apps in that in some instances (a) your progress is saved and associated with your gmail login, and (b) you can play offline in some case, and (c) the Chrome store enables game vendors to use the freemium model, where in-game upgrades can be purchased.

More info and screenshots:

1. Angry Birds: the iPhone classic works may not work as well with the mouse as with touchscreen controls, but is still so much fun that you probably won’t even notice.

2. Fancy Pants Adventure World 2: so much fun and one of my personal favorites, I love the way this game looks and the gameplay is extremely satisfying.

3. Cargo Bridge: a bridge building game that’s the kind of addictive physics game that we’ve been seeing more and more of lately, esp. on touchscreen devices like the iPhone (though I could not find an iPhone version of this game as of this writing).

4. Steambird Survival: if I told you that a turn based game can be action packed would you believe me? That’s exactly what this aerial dogfighting game manages to achieve. Very cool!

5. Canvas Rider: this game (which harkens back to previously mentioned Linerider), has the player riding around on hundreds of user-submitted tracks. These are frequently very creative and/or amazingly beautiful, but also frequently very difficult. You can draw and submit your own if you like.

Canvas Rider

Canvas Rider is an addictive game where you ride a bike on tracks drawn by other players. It’s entirely written in JavaScript & HTML5, using the most of the new <canvas> element. Controls are simple: press UP to pedal, DOWN to brake, LEFT & RIGHT to balance, Z to turn around.  If you crash, you can always press ENTER to restart or BACKSPACE to cancel checkpoint(s).

There are hundreds of new tracks submitted daily, so be sure to check the subcategories for the very best ones!

Canvas Rider was created by Maxime & Pete with help from OneMoreLevel.com; it’s partially based on Free Rider 2 which received many improvements:
Flash has been dropped for the newer & interoperable HTML5 features
The best runs can be saved as ghosts that other players can watch & challenge
The new rendering engine provides lag-free experience, unstretched fullscreen mode & unrestricted zoom
The new track parser loads & saves trackcodes much faster
The new resizable brush & eraser tools make it easier to design a quality track
