Arcuz is one of the few flash games on this list that is single player. However, it's just as enjoyable and addictive as any other game here. Developed by the Funnaut team, Arcuz is a fantasy action RPG which holds similar comparisons to SNES era Zeldas and Eastern RPG games.
The game is divided into chapters each of which containing various quests to complete, taking you through a wide range of environments. On the course of your journey you confront difficult monsters and bosses, all the while gaining experience points you can put towards improving your characters attributes, like strength and agility. You can also increase your skill at using a particular weapon, enabling you to inflict bonus damage in addition to all your special skills.
Another notable feature is the inclusion of an item enhancement system. You can find magical stones on your journey which you can bind to your weapons and armor to enchant them. Upgrading your equipment in this way will give them special active and passive properties, depending on the combination of magical stones you use. This feature is typical in most RPG games, but is quite unexpected here particularly on a free flash game. Even with a strong storyline, Arcuz still manages to keep you enticed with its simple yet addictive RPG elements, a highly recommended game to play if you are a fan of hack'n'slash RPG games.

Cubelands is a Free to play flash game inspired by the popular indie game Minecraft. Cubelands offers the same sandbox experience, where you can gather resources and build extravagant (or in my case, quite simplistic) creations. The major advantage is, there is no $27 purchase fee and no download. You can simply log on and create right off the bat. The default appearance provides much more vivid and bold colors compared to Minecraft, but you can also customize them with user-made textures and mods.
Cubelands is primarily designed as a multiplayer game. The best thing is, you don't even need to purchase or own a server. You can host your own game or join an existing game and take part in building projects with other players straight away without any hassle. Of course it's not completely like Minecraft, there is no survival element or monsters to fend off in Cubesland. In all honesty, long term Minecraft players tend to turn off survival mode and spend more time creating anyway. So this may not be much of an issue.
Overall, Cubeslands proves to be a thoroughly enjoyable sandbox game. If you love constructing and building magnificent creations in lego-like world and are discouraged by the purchase fee of Minecraft, this is a great alternative.

Unexpected for a Flash game, the combat is in real time however it is composed of auto-attacks with the opportunity to choose your attacks whilst in combat. The core gameplay follows the typical MMORPG formula: completing quests, earning XP, exploring the lands in search of treasure and gear which are no doubt guarded by evil minions.
You have a choice from a selection of 3 different classes, each having 20 different spells and skills for you to learn as you progress through the game. There's a vast number of items to collect with over 120 unique items to find over 40 challenging quests.
