Oilzine lets you play games online, free!
You’ve got lots of work to do but you need
your fix of gameplay. You do a search on Google for “Play Games Online Free”, but
all you can find is “Marvin the Mega Mouse”.
We all know the problem with free online games, there are so
many out there that are bag o’ shite, or ones where you have to register, that
you get bogged down and don’t get chance to play the good ones.
To rectify this, we’re going to do all the hard work for you
(OK, hard, but enjoyable work). Every week we’ll bring you what we consider to
be the most interesting game we’ve uncovered from the many obscure free online
games out there.
After literally hours of suggestion and counter-suggestion, we’ve inventively
called this the “Game of the Week”. Good, eh?
And in addition to the current “Game of the Week”, the
archive of previous "games of the week" will always be readily available
for you to use. So there’s no excuse for playing “Marvin the Mega Mouse” ever
We guarantee that whenever you come to us, you’ll feel liberated and able to play games
And you'll solve the age-old problem that even Socrates once commented on, that of spending too long
looking for decent free online games, and not enough time playing them.
As Socrates himself would say, "everyone's a winner".
