The Chromebook Test: Living In Google Chrome For A Month (Part 23)


Gaming in Chrome OS/Chromium OS

Gaming in Chrome OS/Chromium OS is in the Chrome/Chromium web browser, so is mostly small simple games in HTML 5 like Solitaire,

but there are more complex 3D games. along with a large list in the Chrome Store that I've not  looked at yet.

The only thing is that some of the games although they are marked as Free actually need an in App style purchase to Unlock the Full game, but this can be highly miss leading as it makes you think that a game is free when it's actually a demo of the game.

So far out of the games that I've had chance to try Solitaire seems to be the best of the bunch & Cut The Rope seems to be the worst as it doesn't really translate out of Mobile gaming due to the lack of Touch screen Chrome Devices & that it's probably going to be a pain in the rear getting Chromium OS running on a Touch screen Windows 8/8.1 Ultrabook.
