Best Browser Games to Play
Wordle is a word game that you can play in any browser. Every day a five-letter word is selected and it should be guessed within six tries.
After every guess, the player gets a hint through the colors. If the alphabet is green then its in the right position. The yellow block means the alphabet is part of the word but in the wrong position. Grey blocks mean they are not part of the word of the day.
If you guess the word within six tries, then all blocks will turn green. You will get a score based on guesses, and accuracy in earlier attempts.
First, on the list, we have Slither.io. The primary objective of this new and improved Snake game is to eat as many glowing dots as possible. You grow bigger in size after eating each dot. However, you are not the only snake on the server.

The goal of the game is to arrange the blocks(Teromino) so that they form complete horizontal lines across the Tetris Matrix. When a complete line is formed, it disappears, and any blocks above it will fall down to fill the gap.
The game starts at a relatively slow pace, with one block falling at a time, but as the game progresses, the pace quickens, and more blocks fall at once. If the player is unable to arrange the Tetrominoes so that they form complete lines, the blocks will stack up to the top of the Tetris Matrix, and the game is over.
