Free Mario and Sonic game downloads

Here are three excellent free game downloads for you to play on your computer - one Super Mario game and two Sonic the Hedgehog games. They are written in Flash, so you can even upload them to your own website to entertain your visitors if you wish. :-)

To use these downloads and play these games, first click on one of the game download links below. Then select "Save" for the .zip compressed file that will be downloaded, and select a folder on your computer to save the .zip file into - I give you my personal guarantee that all three of these downloads are virus free! Once the .zip file has finished downloading, unzip it into a folder of your choosing, and then simply double-click on the .htm file that was unzipped. This starts a simple webpage that runs locally on your computer - you don't need an active web connection to run it, it isn't part of a website. The game runs within the webpage, and you can play it there (because the game is Flash, it needs to open and run inside a webpage to work properly).

To use the games in your own website, simply upload the .swf Flash game files and the .htm webpages (or your own customised versions of them) to your web server or web space. Link to the game pages from somewhere in your website, and the games can then be played online from within your site.

Here are the three download links - the game titles give you a good idea of what the games actually are:

Super Mario Bros.: Paper Mario World -> .zip format, 9.57 MB

Sonic the Hedgehog: Amy's Whack-A-Nik -> .zip format, 0.45 MB

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic Sky Chase -> .zip format, 1.28 MB

Remember, you don't need to be connected to the internet to play any of these games once you have downloaded them. Enjoy! :-)

All three games, plus over 140 more, are available to play online at my site.
