Here are all of the best old-school internet games that you can still play online
With Club Penguin closing down last year, it felt like your childhood really was over and yes, all your Puffles are dead.
Who else begged their parents to let them get a membership just to get the yellow Puffle and some funky outfits for your pink penguin to wear? However, your childhood hasn't been completely lost. Although gaming today is completely different—with the many consoles and virtual reality headsets being just a few ways technology has progressed, sometimes it's nice to reminisce.
I think it's safe to say most people who had access to a PC as a child definitely found their way over to miniclip.com. I'm sure everyone will be overjoyed to find out that this website still survives to this day. Whether you were bored at home or had free time in an IT lesson at school, this was ultimately the most fun way to spend your time.
Raft Wars was one of my favourite games to play as a kid and it can still be found on Miniclip. You can even play the new and improved Raft Wars 2, a game which allows you to shoot tennis balls at the bad guy's rafts in order to improve your own raft and win the war. I always found it hilarious how the little brother fell off, but I can't deny the game really brought out my competitive side; I wanted the biggest raft to win.
Monster Trucks was another favourite of mine and I am so relieved that the game can still be accessed here. The aim of the game is to get through as many journey's as possible while crushing cars and performing stunts. I found it so fun to speed away, though I am definitely the opposite of rampaging on the roads in real life. You can also play Monster Trucks Nitro, a new and improved version. However, nothing beats the original in my opinion.
While Miniclip has saved some of the classics, lots of other games can still be played online even though their original host has shut down. I used to be obsessed with the Disney Channel games.
Does anyone remember the Lilo and Stitch Experiment 625 Sandwich Stacker game? I spent hours and hours building up the perfect sandwiches. Experiment 625 was hilarious and I definitely share his love of food—you can play it here. Habbo Hotel also survived.
Hopefully these games can help you recover from the grief of losing Club Penguin last year. Reliving your childhood is always a fun way to pass the time and would be great to do in between revision breaks.
