Flash games for PC: download, online, old

Are you nostalgic for classic Flash games? We have very good news for you: it is possible to play them all on your PC with the Flashpoint application, which gives you access to no less than 38,000 great games!

Originally developed by macromedia before being acquired by Adobe, Flash technology had its heyday in the 2000s, when most popular online games and applications relied on Flash to run. Today, for security reasons among others, Flash technology is on the verge of being definitively abandoned. Adobe stopped supporting Flash at the end of 2020. Since then, all tech giants (Apple, Facebook, Google etc) and major browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox) are gradually moving to newer formats like HTML5 to replace Flash Once for all.
