Hi, my name is Gaz, welcome to my website. I've been developing free games and websites since 2006. My previous site, TheGameHomepage.com, was visited by 65 million people. I've also developed over a hundred web games and they've been played somewhere around a billion times! I picked up some cool awards along the way including a Guinness World Record and a BAFTA Special Commendation. What started as a hobby has turned in to my passion and over the past fourteen years I've learned a lot about web games. I've used this experience along with some new ideas to make this website, FreeGames.org, my fresh take on a free game website. With this project there are a number of things that I set out to achieve:
1. Genuinely Free 😄
This is the classic version of 2048 game. Join the numbers and get to the 2048 tile. Play 2048 online for free here. Play the best free games, deluxe downloads, puzzle games, word and trivia games, multiplayer card and board games, action and arcade games, poker and casino games, pop culture games and more. Play Puzzle Games at Free Online Games. Our best Puzzle Games include and 2823 more.
In-app purchases and micro-transactions have become the norm in free games these days, withholding content or frustrating you to try and make you buy power-ups. It seems the catch for playing free games is that they will use every trick in the book to make you pay - often many times more than you would pay for a game outright. This strategy works and some people are spending huge amounts of money on their favorite games over time without realizing how much it has added up. All of the games on this website are complete full games with no in-game purchases whatsoever. All of our games and all of their content is 100% free - no exceptions!

2. Online 🌐
Apps have been the most popular way to play casual games for a while now. I think there are some compelling reasons to give online games another shot though. For instance it can be tiresome installing and deleting many apps to find the game you want. It can be a drag waiting for them to install when you just want to quickly play something new. They can fill up your device. They can only be played on one type of device (iPhone, Android etc.). Online Games solve all of these problems. I'm not saying that online games should replace apps - I think there are great reasons for both and they can happily exist alongside each other 🧡
3. On any Device 📱
I wanted to create a consistent experience across all devices. Often web games will only work on computers and if you visit on a mobile device they don't play. Other times if you visit the website on desktop then mobile you are presented with completely different games. I wanted to make a consistent experience on any device so if you play a fun game on your computer in the afternoon you can come back later on your phone to play it in bed. Or you want to show a friend you can pull it up on their tablet. All of the games on the homepage of this site are compatible on any device.
4. Scale to your Screen Size 👀
It is frustrating when you are trying to play a game but its size is completely different to your screen. All the games on FreeGames.org scale to fit any size screen so you can enjoy them on any device.

5. Fast Loading ⚡
I want players to be able to click (or tap) and play instantly. That's why I've used the latest cloud hosting technology to serve it all over the world from a location near you. I've also worked hard with site optimizations to make everything work as fast as possible. This is another advantage of removing video adverts as it means you can start playing your chosen game much faster or try out many different games to find a good one without watching an advert each time.
6. User Feedback 💭
I continuously update this website with new games and improvements. Rather than guess or assume what you want I have a secret weapon - I ask! You will notice feedback buttons and often short surveys popping up around the site. If you have any thoughts, issues or ideas don't keep them to yourself - let me know. I read every piece of feedback submitted and use it all to help decide what changes and features to implement to both the website and games.
7. No Downloads 👍
All of our titles can be played instantly with no need to download. Why fill up your phone or laptop with downloaded games you aren't even sure you will like yet when you can play them like this?
8. Wholesome / Family Friendly 👪
This website is family friendly. The games here have been selected/developed with the aim to create a positive experience that is appropriate for all ages.
9. The Best Games 🏆
Last on my list and most important of all is great games. I develop and hunt down the most fun games for you to play.
Hopefully these features will mean that you have a good experience on FreeGames.org. If you have any comments please do feel free to get in contact with me. You can do so via my contact form or facebook page. Last of all I'll leave you with my project motto which I have stuck on the wall next to my computer:
'Create the best free games website for the players'
Thank you for reading my manifesto and for using FreeGames.org. Have fun!
