× Javaders Duplicates Java Game Sites About

Archived List of Java Game Sites

This list was last updated on the 26th May 2009, so some are likely to have disappeared by now. It is provided as a fixed list for archival purposes now. But if you do use it and find a dead site, please let me know and I will disable the link.

NameDescription
AddictingGamesLots of free online games presented by genre on a simple single-page listing.
(User submission 26th May 2005)
A Games ZoneThey say '...over 500 free to play games. New games added weekly.'
Arcade Games OnlineThey say 'Our goal is to provide you with all of the best free Java games and Macromedia games available online.' The site has undergone a re-design and whilst the games are broken down by genre, each genre is then over many pages, making it a bit harder than it ought to be to find the right game.
(Updated 26th February 2001)
Arcade OutpostA simple, but usable, site listing game by high level genre. With so many games, Classic was 11 pages each of 10 games, it would be better broken down one further level. That said, they do allow for rating and it appears to have been updated recently.
(Added 8th May 2001)
ArcadePodLots of Java games, updated quite regularly. Also has Shockwave games. The 'Online Games' home page contains many links but still remains relatively uncluttered and usable.
