The Best Free Quick Play Online Games

Got five minutes left of your lunch break and want to fill it with something fun? As long as you’re sat at your computer then we can help you with that. All of these games can be played in as little as five minutes, can be played online and don’t have to cost you a penny (unless you want to skip ahead). So, get ready for five minutes of fun with these great quick play games.


Anyone who grew up during the 90s will have heard of QWOP. This game was one of the original flash games that we loved during the early days of internet gaming. The goal of the game is simple, get the runner across the finish line. However, it’s a little more complicated than it sounds. Using the Q,W,O and P keys, you’ll control the thighs and calves of the runner, which can lead to some hilarious results. Slow down, take your time and remember not to run before you can walk.

Casino Games

These kinds of games all come under one heading as most casino sites will offer multiple games under one roof. If you enjoy the casino genre and are looking for the best free games in 2022 then there are a few sites to choose from. PokerNews breaks them down here according to what games they have available to play. So is a good choice for those looking for the crème de la crème of free to play casino games.

Pokemon Go

Although you can’t play on a web browser, Pokemon Go still makes the list because it’s an online game, it’s free (except those pesky extras) and it literally took the world by storm when it was first released. Several years on and it’s still keeping people amused and more importantly, getting people outside looking for those funny little creatures.


Lots of the best quick play games are grid-based, so it made sense to include Gridland. This game works in a similar way to Candy Crush and Bubble Blast, you need to match three icons to clear them. The only difference is, during the day you’ll gain supplies from matching lines and at night you’ll fight off monsters with your matches. The timer only starts once you make a move, so this game will suit strategists really well.


This game is another grid-based favourite in which you have to move tiles around in order to get two matching tiles next to one another. Once you do this, the tiles combine and your job starts over again. The goal is to keep going for as long as possible without filling up your grid. It’s a fast-moving game that’ll make sure you know your threes really well.

A Dark Room

Those who enjoy minimalist gaming will love this slightly sinister game, A Dark Room. It is set on a totally blank browser page (either white or black, depending on whether you choose to keep the lights on or off) and a simple typeface describes the story to you as it unfolds. This is the sort of game that needs to be played to be understood. It’s amazing how much suspense can be created with such a bare-bones approach.
