Friv.com: Guide to the Free Friv Games Network

A Popular Free Games Network with Super Easy Games

Frive homepage

Friv.com is a free online gaming site that offers a super large collection of frivolous free games that are very easy to play.

Since it requires no signup, lots of people are sampling the Friv.com gaming site and getting hooked on the colorful, addictive games. And yes, most Friv games are highly frivolous, but isn't that the point of online Flash games? They help you fritter away your time and get pleasure in return.

What's the Appeal of Friv.com?

Friv.com has a super simple interface, designed to make it easy for young people to explore its wide variety of games. At last count, the site claimed to have more than 700 free games. They are classified in categories like Action, Shoot Em Up, Sports, Puzzle and Youngsters.

Not surprisingly, Friv.com is particularly popular with kids, teens and young adults because its games are so easy to use. But plenty of older people play the games too.

The games are all accessible from the home page through a grid of tiny tiles, one for each game. You just mouse over a game tile to see the name of the game, then click on it if you want to play.

Since the games are created using the Flash programming technology, it can take a fair amount of time to load a game. And it requires a computer that has the latest version of the Adobe Flash player installed.

Friv.com is the main games portal, but a bunch of other sites like FrivGames.biz and Friv-Games.com provide information about the gazillion games in the Friv gaming network.
