Chrome store apps
I recently converted a few of my Flash games to Chrome Web Store apps. The process was fairly easy, most of the time was actually spent making the correct size and style of icons. They ended up as basically just a html page that holds the game swf. There’s not a lot of difference between this and playing a game on a portal website, although once installed you can play offline and it’s a nice way to “bookmark” apps in Chrome.
This project was a bit of a whim, and unless Google decides to feature any of them it probably wasn’t a good investment of time (and the $5 developer signup!) Having said that its always fun to see your work in another ecosystem and the icons and game pages look kinda cool, if I do say so myself. The store organization seems strange – there are big scrollable lists in categories, but it’s a mystery as to how the apps are ordered (i.e. your can’t sort by downloads or rating etc) and how users would discover your apps unless they are featured high in the list.
Anyhow, without further ado I present these sweet games as Chrome apps:
