Top 5 Flash Game Conversions on iPad

Best ways to get Flashy on iPad

If you think that the iPad was the first platform on which you could play an abundance of cheap, accessible bite-sized games, then you've clearly never played a Flash game in your life.

These online timewasters have been keeping PC users entertained at work for years. It should come as no surprise to learn, then, that they've provided a lot of inspiration for budding iOS game developers.

In fact, many of the best Flash games have been successfully ported to iOS, as this Top 5 Flash game conversions on iPad feature will show right now.

It's time to salute the micro-gaming pioneers.

Ridiculous Fishing feels like it was made for iOS, doesn't it? Well, it was. Sort of. Vlambeer first tried out the snag-toss-shoot concept with the Flash game Radical Fishing, you see. A while later, Vlambeer decided to spruce the game up and fling it onto Apple's glamorous tablet. The result is this stunningly fresh and intuitive arcade fish-'em-up.

The iPad version of Semi Secret's beguiling puzzler is far richer, prettier, and more sophisticated than the Flash original, but it's still a Flash game at heart. The idea is to pop all of the bubbles by touching them to reduce their internal numbers to zero. The catch is they mustn't touch while your finger is in contact with them.

Anyone who tells you Flash games are overly shallow and simplistic clearly hasn't played Kingdom Rush HD. Put simply, this is one of the best and most tactically rich tower defence games out there. The iPad version is pretty faithful to the original, too, and that's no bad thing. At all.

Terry Cavanagh's beautifully odd platformer survived the transition to iOS with almost everything intact. It's an unsettling game that can be completed in less than an hour, but its striking retro visuals and hauntingly opaque storyline ensure that this is as memorable as Flash games get.

Burrito Bison started life as one of Adult Swim's uncommonly polished Flash game treats. It then made its way - rather inevitably - over to iOS. This tablet version is essentially the same basic game of keepie-uppie as the original. So, yep, you spring your bison-headed wrestler into the stratosphere using rocket pants. Yes: rocket pants.
