Flash Game Player Opens Up A New World of Games on Android

One of the great selling points about Android phones is that they are fully capable of displaying Flash content. Nonetheless, there are still many Flash-based web games which will not work with Android for one simple reason: the controls have not been correctly implemented to allow their use on a mobile device.

Normally, you have to wait for the Flash developer to manually make his or her contribution to the online world friendly with our phones and tablets. However, XDA member Kazeari has created an extremely useful free application, which is designed to allow Android users to use almost any Flash game, regardless of whether or not they have been written to work for the platform.

To try Flash Game Player out, Kazeari recommends having a high-end Android device and Adobe Flash 10.1 installed. The application allows .swf files to be played from your device’s SD card. More information is available in the project thread.

Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.
