The Best Instant Games on Facebook

Jewel Academy

If you are up for a puzzle challenge, this is the perfect game for you. You have to match three or more gems in a limited amount of moves to reach a target score. This may seem easy at first and it is like a piece of cake in the first couple of levels. But as you proceed, the levels become hard. You will have a limited amount of time to reach the target score. If you continue playing this game for a long period of time, you will learn the tricks to earn more points with less amount of moves. As they say, practice makes you perfect.

Super Dash

This game asks of you to score the highest by collecting the most amount of coins. But it is not easy to collect those coins. You add coins to your bag by jumping over various neighborhoods. This includes hills and springs. While you are at it, you will also have to look out for any potential danger. And protect yourself from it.

Zoozle Blitz

This game imitates Sudoku and is a rather unique game. However, it is much more colorful than Sudoku. Your goal in the game is to complete the grid before you with the correct number of colors. Making it all the more fun. To make the game even more interesting, the developers took the help of bombs. Yeah, these mini bombs may explode if you take too long (make a lot of moves) to place your colors.

Apart from this, you can also enjoy playing the following games with your friends:

  1. Bat Climb
  2. Word a lot Express
  3. Master Archer
  4. Daily Sudoku

But be careful while you hop on the bandwagon. Let me warn you that these games are HIGHLY addictive. A friend of mine, working for Charter Spectrum customer service, was caught playing these games. Because let’s face it playing games and beating your friends at them is more important than attending to the clients. The queries can wait, of course.
