Gamevial, play web games online now.
|Welcome to the heart of Gamevial.
All games on this website, have been made by Gamevial exclusively for Gamevial players. To allow us to continue making the games we love, we advertise, this allows us to cover the cost of this site and to the making of future games. If you see an advert that appeals do click through... we appreciate it- LETS KEEP THE VIAL FULL!
Games are being made as you read this, look out for our special downloads, game forums and competitions.
Everything should run smoothly while you are on gamevial, and most of our games are at least easy to pick up, if not to master.
However, are some hints if you get stuck, or something goes wrong.
There are two things that this may be the result of:
Firstly, you may have a weird pink bar appearing at the top to tell you that microsoft has blocked some active content that may harm your computer. Do not worry! Nothing on gamevial does anything dodgy to your machine, and we are not fans of spam anyway, so just click this bar and choose something like "allow blocked content", this will get things running.
Secondly, you may need the Flash or Shockwave plug in. This should start downloading automatically as soon as you hit the game page, but if not, go to www.adobe.com ,and download the "Shockwave" Plug-in (Making sure to uncheck the "Include Yahoo toolbar" box if you see it).
Click on the games, sometimes they need to be activated, particularly if some weird pop-uppy thing happens.
This should only happen when you play one of our games from another games site. And happens to stop people being able to pinch our games. Playing our games from here should stop this.
This happens when you submit your score. To return to the game, press the back button on your internet browser or go to the plackard, select your game, and click the link that appears beneath the menu.
Using your arrow keys, "walk" up to the front of the hall. When you "touch" the panel in the 3D world a menu will appear, showing all of the games. If you then choose the game that you played, and click on the logo, you will see the table of scores relevant to that game. If you are not on that list, your score may not have been good enough.
As a note, a lot of ouir visitors are clicking the "submit" button before typing their names in the field with "type your name here" written into it. Obviously their submissions go with the name "Type your name here" instead of their names.
If you want to download and play our games offline, you can load the web page as normal, and then click your "favourites" button , and "make available offline" when you add the page to your favourites.
This will save them onto your machine.
Most of the actual applets themselves, you cannot play offline in any other way, as we have to protect our games, by making sure that they are only played from our websites or everyone just robs them.
