Turn Your Firefox into an Arcade

Firefox Arcade GamesAfter all the stress of the holidays, and before you start getting stressed about taxes – you need a way to relax.  How do I relax?  I play games.  Want to turn Firefox into your own personal arcade?  Here are a more than a few extensions to help you along the way.

PONG! Multiplayer – Play a game of PONG! while you are waiting. (also see the PingPong add-on)

Cards – A collection of patience (i.e. single-player) card games. Included are: Aces Up, Black Widow, Canfield, Demon, Double Klondike, Double Solitaire, Grounds for Divorce, Fan, Forty Thieves, FreeCell, Golf, Gypsy, Klondike, Maze, Mod 3, Montana…

Pacman – The Retro Extension. Yet another Pacman-clone. (Also check out PagMan)

Clines – Clines, a little game. (with dots!)

Mozteroids – Mozteroids is a variant of the computer game classic Asteroids.

Xultris – Xultris is a variant of the computer game classic Tetris.

Snake – Snake is a clone of the popular Snake or Worm…

Xoom – a top-down racing game with simple graphics, but tons of fun.

Red vs. Blue – The goal of this little game is to sort all red dots to left side and all blue dots to right side. Do this as fast as possible.

Froggr – Froggr is a clone of the classic Frogger.

There are tons of free flash games out there too, so to help you with those – I have another add-on that is worth mentioning.  Flash Game Maximizer does exactly what it claims to do.  It maximizes the flash game you are playing to fill the entire browser.   Also, you can’t forget about FireNES, which (last time I checked) allowed you to play tons of old NES titles.

Have any other favorite games you can play from within Firefox?

PONG! Multiplayer

Playing pong might not be anything new, but how about multiplayer pong? With the PONG! Multiplayer extension for Firefox you too can challenge your friends and foes in a battle of pong combat.

This extension also features a full blown chat application. Chat with everyone in the Multiplayer lobby, or just with your opponent while playing a game. Want to take on your best buddy? Just type the nickname or ip-address of a friend, and he/she will get invited to play a game against you.
