When web developers and website creators are moving away from Adobe Flash there are few who are trying to keep the history alive, by at least keeping all the cool flash games at one place. Yes, in 2017 Adobe announced that by 2020 they will completely stop support for Adobe Flash and it will be no longer in use. As Google and other search engines quickly moved away from the bandwidth-heavy platform Flash became outdated. As it is not at all mobile-friendly since it consumes a lot of data.
However, now a set of people (basically programmers) at BlueMaxima have created an archive of over 38,000 games, which we all have grown up playing. These are all Adobe flash-based games and are now free to play. This can be done with the use of a Flashpoint launcher that has the archive of all these games at one spot. Some would say the graphics are outdated and also when compared to the latest mobile and PC games, they are nowhere close.
Well, yes that is true, however, this is a piece of history that some programmers want to preserve and one can always go to them, and play Adobe Flash games. These games have many famous names, which also came to the mobile platform in various forms like Bejeweled. Many current mobile games on Android and iOS are inspired by games that first existed on Adobe Flash. These include Subway Surfer, Sonic, Angry Birds etc.
One can play all these games using the Flashpoint launcher on their PC or laptops. Users would need to install the launcher and then download the game they want to play from the library. However, these are not small games to download, if you want the entire library, you would need to download over 290GB of it. Now that is a big archive.
