Whenever you are working for several hours on the computer, you must take a break from time to time. The specialists are recommending to take a break after each hour of working. In this break you can go outside for a few minutes, eat something, smoke a cigarette or do whatever you like to do. But if you are too lazy to go outside, or the weather is really bad, you can always enjoy the break in your own room or office. A great relaxation method is to play a video game. If you are not a really big gamer and you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive and complex games, like the ones you find these days, you can always enjoy a free online game. Like we said they are absolutely free, all you need is a connection to the internet. You can play them directly online but some are also downloadable. The topics of these online games are very diversified, you can find anything for everyone. There are sports games, shooting games, adventure games, dress-up games for the girls, games for babies and also games for adults. Most of them are really funny and they include cool and hilarious characters, some of them are even famous people (singers, actors, politicians).

Most of them have a very simple design because they are made with the flash technology, and they are usually very short. But there are also the free 3D funny games which are coming in a much more complex graphic. You will find many of them on the internet and one of the coolest is the "Missile game 3D". In this game you are piloting a missile through a large tunnel and you must make it to the end of each stage without crashing into the different objects that will appear in front of you. You must fly through the holes in the rotating obstacles, and you must use your mouse to move the missile as you want. Actually you won't see the missile and you will have the impression that you are the missile. And of course you can imagine that you are driving a plane, a car or you can imagine that it's really you who is flying. The flying sensation is really nice, and this game will be very addictive. First you will go to a qualifying round with an unlimited number of tries. But after you complete the first level, you can start the real game and here you will have just 5 lives to finish all 9 levels. It seems pretty difficult, but with more practice you will play better and better. As you go forward the speed of the missile will increase. You have a speedometer which indicates you how fast you go, and also a progress bar to show you how much you completed from the level. The faster you'll go the more fun you'll have. You will lose a life when crashing into an obstacle.
Another free 3D funny game is the "Arctic Racer 3D".As you may tell from the title it is a racing games, and the vehicles used are snowmobiles. The controls are simple, you must use the up and down keys for acceleration and braking and the left and right keys for steering. You can also use the space bar to launch ammo from your vehicle. First you get to choose your snowmobile and there are 3 different models. The graphic of the game is pretty cool, you can view the snowmobile from 2 angles, and you also have a nice dashboard in front of you. You can also see the score and your position in the race. When picking up different items your snowmobile will go faster. You can also jump on the ramps to make the game more interesting. And of course you must be the first to cross the finish line. The funny thing about this game is that when you shoot at your opponent you will shoot with cookies :)
One of the most famous games ever is the "Snake". It is a very simple game where you have a snake (or worm) and you have to move it across the screen, eat dots to make you larger and also be careful not to hit the sides. The game became famous from the old computers or mobile phones, but now it also has a 3D version. It is simply called "Snake 3D" and it is much better than the 2D versions. Now the snake really looks like a snake (not just a line) and you won't eat simple dots, you will eat apples. To move the snake across the screen just use your arrow keys. Of course this is just one of the versions, you will find many more on the internet.
Another cool 3D game is the "3D space hawk". Here you will be in the command of a space craft and you will have to shoot and destroy all the enemies. There are two different controls that you will use, the arrow keys to move the craft up, down, left and right and the mouse button to move the target and to shoot at your enemy crafts.
Another popular game which now has its 3D version is the "3D Battle Ball". You all remember that simple game from an old computer or mobile phone where you would have some kind of a line (meant to be a tennis racket or something like that), and you will give the ball to your opponent and he gives it back to you, and so on until someone loses the ball. The 3D version has the same rules but looks much cooler.
Anyone knows the classic Tetris game. And this game also has its 3D version called exactly like that "Tetris 3D". The game principles are exactly the same, the only difference is that you will see the game board in a 3D perspective. And this will make it a little more difficult than the previous version. The controls are also the same: the arrow keys for moving the parts left and right and the space bar to rotate them. Before you get used with the 3D view you will place the parts in all the wrong positions, but after that it will be ok.
The classical racing games now also have 3D online versions. One of them is the Toyota Race. Here you will have to use your arrow keys to control the cool looking car, and also the shift key for turbo speed. You must finish the race in less than 140 seconds for the first track, 138 for the second and 135 for the third. It is not a racing game, but you will have to pass as many cars as possible to make a bigger score. Your score may be negative if the numbers of cars that you passes is smaller than the number of cars that passed you.
You will have two models of Toyota to choose from, and you can also change the color of the car. There are three tracks to choose from, the Bei Jing City, Shang Hai and Guang Zhou. The graphic of the game is pretty cool and realistic and it looks similar to the one on complex PC games...let's not forget that this is only a flash game!
There are many more other cool 3D games on the Internet, all you have to do is search for them. Good luck!
