The topics of the free online flash games are very diversified. There is a game of this type with practically anything you can think of. You will find games inspired by almost all the sports, games inspired by day to day activities (cooking, cleaning, dressing up), games inspired by movies, by cartoons, by comic books, by music and so on. These games are made with the flash technology, meaning that usually they have a simple graphic, some simple controls, and they don’t last for so long.

Usually flash games take about 5-10 minutes to complete. But this is not a bad thing, because this way you won’t have time to get bored with that game, and you will be able to move on to another one. Don’t worry because you won’t run out of games, because there are already thousands of games on the internet, and there are many more others appearing each day. Today we are going to discuss about some free online Avatar games. But we won’t talk about the famous Avatar movie that has just been launched in the cinemas, because there aren’t any online games inspired by the movie yet. I am sure that there will be many games about this movie soon, and we’ll probably discuss about those in future articles. Today we are going to talk about Avatar: The last Airbender cartoon TV series, and some games inspired by them.
Avatar The Last Airbender (also known as Avatar: the legend of Aang is an American animated TV series for kids, that was first aired on Nickelodeon channel and Nicktoons Network. These cartoons are a mixture between the Japanese anime cartoons and the US domestic cartoons. They are made by American producers, but the action takes place and it is inspired by the Asian world. The series are following the adventures of the main character Aang and his friends, and they must save the world from the evil Fire Lord. The show was quite appreciated by the us kids, and is running from 2005 until today. It had millions of viewers among the 6-11 years old kids, and it also receives some awards. The first part of a trilogy movie called The Last Airblender is expected to be released in July 2010.
There are many merchandises inspired by the cartoon series, such as action figures, trading cards, stuffed animals, LEGO sets, books and also some video games. Today we are going to talk about some free online Avatar games, and we’ll begin with the one called “Avatar Arena”. Your objective in this game is to create your own character and challenge the world’s best benders and defeat them. You have to use the arrow keys and the space bar to control your player, and each of the nations will have different combinations of controls, and you will find all of them at the game instructions. After choosing your nation you will be able to make your custom player.
The nations don’t seem to have any names, but each one will have a different symbol. When creating your player you will be able to change his head aspect, his arms, his body, and his legs. Make the fighter as you like, and then move on. You can first to some training or start the tournament. In the tournament there will be 20 opponents to defeat. The graphic of the game looks quite nice, and the moves are cool too. We suggest to learn first all the moves for each nation (from the game instructions) because after that it will be much easier for you to defend your enemies. Good luck!
Now let’s choose another game inspired by the cartoon the series, which is “Avatar Fortress Fight”. In this one you have to destroy your opponents fortress in battle before the destroy your fortress. To control the game you will have to use only the mouse. First choose your projectile type and move the mouse to pick an angle. Then hold down the left mouse button to select the power, and release the mouse button to shoot. Each weapon (projectile) has its own damage and accuracy proprieties. Remember that you can’t use the same projectile two times in a row. Use the look feature to locate the power ups that are somewhere in the air, and fire through them to reduce the damage made to your fortress or to make even more damage to the fortress of your opponent. You can play this game both in 1 or 2 players.
So you can play it with a friend and see which one of you is the best. There are 3 types of fortresses to choose from : earth, water or fire. First click on the “look” button to approximate the distance and angle of the shoot, and only then begin the throwing process. In the lower part of the screen you will see the damage made to each fortress, and of course the one to receive full damage first will lose the game. So after all this game is really fun, especially when played in 2 players .
There is also a second version of this game, which is simply called” “Avatar Fortress 2”. The rules of the game are pretty much the same, only that the graphic and game play are improved. There are new weapons, new power ups and also the game play is better and easier. When throwing a projectile you will be able to see the whole image from further away, so there is no need for that “look” feature, and you will be able to hit the opponent much easier. So if you liked the first version of this game, you will definitely like the second one too. So here were the free online Avatar games that we found. If you know some more others, please tell us about them. Good luck at the games, and have a nice day!
