Great little game. Comes with Chrome

Here is a great game if you ever want to waste five minutes. If you have chrome you have it. Just

1. Click on the link below. An error is displayed.
2. Do not worry about the error. Just look at the monster.
3. Press the spacebar. The background will start moving.
4. Cacti will appear and approach. Just over them with the arrow keys.
5. Flying monsters will appear. You can go under them with the arrow keys.
6. The game speeds up.

Enjoy.

Are there any other games that are free, without ads or viruses? Best if I already have them and do not know about it.

Edit. Cannot change the link into a link. You will have to cut and paste.

All I'm getting is: "there is no internet connection" despite my checking several times and I am connected.

Haha, cute. Works in Vivaldi (Chromium-based) as well and apparently they even changed the "monster" into their little mascot fellow.

Better than typing "Google Gravity". Don't drag anything.

Here is another game:

http://members.iinet.net.au/~pontipak/redsquare.html

Grab the red square with your mouse and move it. Game starts as soon as you click the mouse.
