The first of many new HTML5 games in my Flash game sites

Tragically Adobe Flash will become unavailable for use at the end of this year. This will mean that come January 2021 every single Flash game in every single website in the entire world will stop working. So very, very sad.

The end of Flash was announced way back in 2017, so there has been plenty of notice about it, to say the least. But the road to establishing a global standard replacement for it has been a somewhat bumpy one. Initially a system called "Unity3D for web browsers" was a preferred solution, being able to create much better games than was even possible using Flash. However, that died several years ago, so it has the dubious distinction of being created and being killed off during the lifetime of Flash. Lol.

The replacement for Flash games now and going forward into the foreseeable future is HTML5, which means games written in that (which also includes the use of JavaScript and CSS) will run in any web browser without the need for Flash or any other software or app downloads.

HTML5 / JavaScript / CSS was chosen as the successor to Flash pretty much alongside the arrival of Unity3D, but for the longest time it was not possible to create the complex style of games that Flash offered, so it was a very poor choice. However, in the past few years that has changed enormously, and very large complex games are now possible in HTML5, as you can see if you play the following incredibly accurate recreation of the 1985 Nintendo NES classic game "Super Mario Bros.":

Another old blog reactivated

Following on from what I said in my personal blog yesterday, I also have not posted anything in this blog for 6 years now. It's time to put that right, not least because Adobe Flash will be killed off at the end of next year, meaning every single Flash game in the whole world, including everything in my 2 big websites, will stop working forever in 2021. What a total tragedy!

I will be posting a lot of stuff about HTML5 / JavaScript / CSS games that will replace the Flash games next year. In the meantime, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2020!

PS. All the Flash games in my 2 big gaming sites still work, and will continue to work for 1 more year, so please visit them and enjoy them... while you still can:

Two Mario games I am looking forward to playing later this year

I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the next two Mario games due out on the Nintendo Wii U console: "Super Mario 3D World" (the follow-on to the 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land) which will be released in November, and "Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games" (the follow-on to the Wii and 3DS game Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games", which will be released at the end of the year.

I suspect I'm not the only person eagerly awaiting the games either, especially the first one - it looks like "Super Mario 3D World" is going to be the biggest and best Mario game ever, even better than the awesome Super Mario Galaxy 2.

The latest Mario game for the Nintendo 3DS, "Mario & Luigi: Dream Team", is released in the UK and the rest of Europe today. It will be released in Australasia tomorrow and North America early next month.

Nintendo Wii U and New Super Mario Bros. U are out today!

New Super Mario Bros. U

Nintendo's new gaming console, the Wii U, is released throughout the PAL zone today (i.e. Australia, New Zealand and most of Asia, Africa, South America and Europe). Hooray!

It is the replacement for the original Wii, and is the first eighth generation console - Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One will be the other ones, but they won't be launched for another year. See the excellent Wikipedia article about it for more information.

One of the most eagerly awaited launch games for the Wii U is "New Super Mario Bros. U", the fourth game in the "New Super Mario Bros." series, and the direct sequel to "New Super Mario Bros. Wii" that was released back in 2009. It is the first High Definition Mario game, and up to 5 players can play simultaneously, so it certainly sounds like it will be a true family game.

You don't need to rush out and buy yourself the new console and game to be able to enjoy some New Super Mario fun though. There are lots of brilliant free Flash online versions of the classic Super Mario Bros. games available in the site, and you can play five of them right here:

  New Super Mario Bros. Flash

  Super Flash Mario Bros.

  Monolith's Mario World

  Super Mario World Flash

  Classic Mario Bros.

New Super Mario Bros. 2

"New Super Mario Bros. 2" for the Nintendo 3DS is released in the UK and the rest of Europe today, and will be released in Australasia and North America during the next two days.

The game, a traditional 2D side-scrolling Mario platformer, is a direct sequel to "New Super Mario Bros." released in 2006 on the Nintendo DS. It has a heavier emphasis on coin-collecting than other Super Mario games - the game's ultimate goal is to collect one million coins. Sounds like quite a challenge!

There is a brilliant free online version of a classic Super Mario Bros. game which you can play for free here: New Super Mario Bros. Flash Online Game. You can play as either Mario or Luigi, and there is also a level editor you can use to create and save your own levels.

There are hundreds more great free Super Mario Bros. online games for you to play in the website.
