Fun Flash game: Star Trek: Alien Domain

I have been enjoying a free flash game Star Trek: Alien Domain. It is a free game that you can play here.

It takes a while to understand since there are many aspects of it. If you have played an MMO before then you will probably easily understand it. I like the fact that there isn’t a determined way to play it. Isn’t it fun when there are many ways to achieve the goal in a game?

Why am I sharing this? Kongregate has some fun free games and they work great with Safari. As I said earlier Safari works great with flash games.

I have mentioned other fun free flash games in earlier posts.

  1. Flash and free web games
  2. Boom Town
  3. Prime World Defenders
  4. Jacksmith
  5. Theme Hotel

Fascinating. While I was writing this my beta version of Apples next version of the macOS corrupted my screen and then I was forced to reboot. Prior to that I had not had issues with screen corruption like this. Clearly you shouldn’t be using beta software on a production machine. Fortunately this is my personal machine so no harm done.

There is also a Star Trek Online but unfortunately it is PC only. It is free though so if you have a PC you might enjoy that.

One of the neat things about online games is that you don’t have to spend time constantly downloading updates. No matter what platform you are on, computer, PS or Steam, almost every game requires constant updates. This is a frustrating thing for gamers. Many times games will not even run until you do the update. I understand why they do that, but it is hostile for game players.

What would be better is if updates could be run when it is convenient for the user. Games should have an option the first time you start them to ask when you want updates to run. Given the fact that many gamers play on mobile devices, or with laptops a persons network connection is not going to be constant. It might be wi-fi at work to enjoy during lunch, or ethernet at home to have the best speed. I don’t think developers understand their customers enough to make these choices for them.

One day gamers will decide every aspect of their games just like the holodeck on Star Trek. Until then, our choices help developers understand our priorities.

Update: I have since switched to the Opera browser and it works even better for flash games.
