The Rise of HTML5 and the Fall of Flash

Written by Tech84 on April 25, 2014

For many years, Flash games have dominated the casual gaming marketplace. In the late 1990s, Adobe’s proprietary platform allowed developers to make games with improved graphics and gameplay, among other features. The early iterations of HTML could not support high-resolution characters moving smoothly in physics-based worlds. Adobe Flash grew in popularity, and the platform became more advanced as broadband internet access grew exponentially. Hundreds of millions of players still enjoy Flash games today.

The Rise of HTML5 and the Fall of Flash

Every website on the internet is comprised of HyperText Markup Language (HTML). News sites, stock quotes, media outlets, and gaming websites are driven by plain text, coded in HTML. Released in 1999, HTML 4.01 preceded HTML5. The latter is the newest revolution in online code. HTML5 was designed with the Open Web Platform in mind. The worldwide coalition seeks a primary standard for optimal compatibility with all personal computers, business PCs, and mobile devices.

As you may recall, Flash was (and still is) incompatible with the majority of smartphones and tablets. This prevalent issue disallows users the ability to enjoy their favorite casual games on mobile devices. HTML5 avoids this problem altogether, as it requires no plugins for use. Any mobile device with a modern browser can access HTML5 content without issue. This results in playing more games and viewing more media without hassle. As a mobile casual gaming platform, HTML5 flourishes where Flash fails.

Cut the Rope, Entanglement, and Bombermine are some of the most popular titles available in HTML5 format. These HTML5 games, along with many others, are playable via standard websites or apps for the Google Chrome browser. Dedicated gaming sites host vast collections of HTML5 games for entertainment without the hassle of Flash loading times and updates. HTML5 is also free of the bugs and exploits with which Flash users are all too familiar.

This collection offers an assortment of Monster Truck adventures. Showcase your driving skills in various HTML5 and Flash games, before the Adobe-based titles become extinct. It’s time to embrace HTML5!
