Top 10 No Wifi computer Games
The Wifi at my house always seems to be down or have issues, which is a massive pain in the butt.
- Sometimes it just requires a reset of the modem and router, other times it’s our ISP.
- When I get bored, or when there is nothing else to do I tend to play games that don’t need any internet connection to work.
- If you have the same problems, check out these 10 free games to give you something to do.
Keep in mind you might need an Internet connection to download some of these, so if you lose Wifi or internet often you might want these to already be downloaded so you can play them.
1. Chrome Dinosaur
If you have Chrome downloaded (can be found here) you can actually play this game at any time. This dude pops up when there is no internet connection, and to start the game all you have to do is press the space bar. If you have Wifi but want to check this game out all you need to do is turn off your Wifi on your computer and try to go to any webpage.
You will get a message saying “Unable to connect to the Internet” with a happy little T-Rex. Simply hit the space bar and jump over the obstacles that come towards you. Try to beat your high score and run as far as you can. This is an endless runner game, so you can play it for as long as you want to, or at least until your Internet connection is back up and going.
Most computers actually already have solitaire installed, but if yours doesn’t all you need to do is download it from here. Solitaire requires no Internet, and is really easy to get the hang of. Basically you just stack cards that can go on top of each other (like a 4 card on top of a 5 card, etc.) until you uncover all the cards. Solitaire is a fun, mindless game to play when you have nothing else to do.
I have a solitaire app on my phone and play it quite a bit, and I’m sure you can get some use out of it if you haven’t already. It is a mindless, fun game where you can just play it while waiting for your internet to start back up.
3. Temple Run 2
You can download Temple Run 2 for your computer here.
I am definitely a fan of the first Temple Run, but the second one is pretty good too. This is also another endless runner where you need to avoid obstacles and run as far as you can. It is very similar to the original Temple Run, but this has more obstacles and new areas you can explore. Temple Run 2 also has more characters you can play as and it has more perks you can unlock. Overall this is a fun game and is something you can enjoy when you lose your Wifi.
4. Angry Birds
You can download Angry Birds for your computer here.
Most people have heard of this game for your phone, but you can also get Angry Birds on your computer as well. This game doesn’t require the Internet (+except to download), and you can play it for as long as you like.
The game is simple to figure out, all you need to do is launch birds at pigs structures (they stole your eggs, so it’s all good). The goal of each level is to take out all the pigs with as few birds as possible. The controls with the computer are very similar to the controls for your phone and is very easy to get the hang of.
5. The Hunter
You can get The Hunter for free on Steam here.
If you are a fan of hunting games you will enjoy The Hunter. If you are NOT a fan of hunting you might want to turn this game down. This is a fun, free, hunting game that you can get on Steam that doesn’t require any Internet (except to download it).
There are actually a lot of different animals you can hunt, and there are a lot of different weapons you can use (including a sweet crossbow). When you have your Internet back you can actually play with your friends and co-op a hunt. Overall it is a good game to play when you lose your Internet.
6. Marvel Puzzle Quest
You can download Marvel Puzzle Quest for free on Steam here.
Marvel Puzzle Quest is very similar to Bejeweled where you have to match gems of the same color so you can “attack” the bad guys. This features damn near every Marvel superhero and playing the campaign requires no Internet (you have the option to play online, which obviously requires Internet).
This is another one one of those mindless games you can play while you wait for your Internet connection, and it is just decently fun in general. If you like this game on your computer you can also download it for your iOS or Android device, so you can never be without Puzzle Quest. I personally feel like the game is pretty repetitive, but that is just my opinion.
7. Zombie Defense
You can download Zombie Defense for your computer from Steam here.
Zombie Defense is a fun zombie game where you control your people and kill zombies. There are almost 50 missions you can complete and you can recruit survivors. There are weapons that you can collect and give to your survivors to kill zombies.
There are also vehicles you can get, and even airstrikes you can call in. Basically there is a bunch of stuff you can unlock and you can upgrade your people and collectibles. This is very similar to the popular game Tower Defense, so any fans of that will more than likely enjoy Zombie Defense.
8. Emily is Away
You can download Emily is Away on Steam for free here.
This is a really well done Indie game where you are taken back to a much simpler time of Windows XP and IM reigned. You can change yourself and your avatar as time moves on to stay with what is popular, and you basically get to relive your time in the early 2000’s.
You talk to a girl named Emily throughout the years in the game where you learn more about her, and you really get to choose the way the story goes based on the actions you do. You can end up getting together with Emily, depending on how you handle the situations that pop up. It is a very fun and interactive game that you can play multiple times to get different endings, and it is really fun revisiting the old times. Again, this game requires no Internet so it is perfect to play with no Wifi.
9. Missing Translation
You can get Missing Translation for free on Steam here.
This is a fun, unique puzzle game that will grab your attention from the get go. You start off the game by going on a walk and are almost transported to a different world where there are monsters and aliens and whatnot roaming through the world. You are tasked with finding parts for a machine that will transport you back to your world so you can get to work by the morning.
To get the parts you have to solve multiple puzzles, which can be tricky to figure out. You can explore around the world or simply stick to your task at hand and not deviate from it. Overall this is a fun and challenging game to play if you have any Internet issues, or if you just want to play a different type of game.
You can get Disturbed for free on Steam found here.
Disturbed is a very creepy and eerie game, so if you aren’t a fan of those types of games you might not want to check this one out. You play as a farmer who has to explore the area around hyis farm, and find horrifying things along the way.
The game was actually based on depression, which is actually a fascinating way to look at the disease. The game is all hand drawn and is the typical point and click style game, but it is pretty disturbing, so you are forewarned before you decide to play it. It is a must for any type of horror fan, however, and is one of my favorite games on this list.
So, there y’all have it. The top 10 best free games that do not require Wifi. Some of the games you will need Wifi or internet to download, so try to download them before you lose your Internet. Some of them, however, don’t require you to download them, so if you are in a pickle and have absolutely no Internet, and have nothing downloaded, you will still be okay.
