What are Addictive Games?

In reality, all good games are addictive to a certain degree, but there’s a difference between something that makes you fancy playing it and a game that you just can’t walk away from. You’ll find plenty of the latter, right here on Gamepix. Addictive games come in all formats, from multi-level platform varieties through to clickers, where you simply have to keep clicking your mouse, or even just leave the game running and gaining points. Even if you find a game that you can leave to its own devices, you won’t be able to resist popping back and checking on the progress, which is what makes it so addictive. Dogeminer is a great example of this. Try it if you don’t believe us...we bet you won’t be able to resist buying a few golden pickaxes! What makes certain games so addictive? The need to complete every level, interesting graphics and fun storylines are just a few reasons, but all really successful games have an element of addictive gameplay to them. Take Tetris as an example. Created by a Russian engineer called Alexey Pajitnov, the actual concept is simplicity itself. All you have to do is control falling blocks to create solid lines, which then disappear and help you to move up to more difficult and faster levels. Nothing too complicated there, but players can’t help trying to beat their best scores or starting over when they run out of lives. Here at Gamepix, we have selected countless amazingly addictive games, all in unblocked HTML5, which will help you kill your boredom. Playable on any device with a web-browser installed on it, you’ll be able to pick up your favorites even when you’re away from home and using a shared computer. Try a few today and see which you become addicted to.
