Friday Fun: Play Air Hockey in Google Chrome

Do you like the challenge of fast-paced games? Then get ready to put yourself to the test with the Air Hockey extension for Google Chrome during company time.

Air Hockey in Action

There are two ways that you can play Air Hockey…either using the drop-down window or opening the game in a new tab. For our example we chose to play in a new tab.

Before starting the game you can choose the difficulty level, to enable/disable the sound, and/or to go to full screen if desired.

Note: Screenshot of “Full Screen” version shown below.

While playing you really have to stay on top of things…the computer player will beat you rather quickly if you do not. Hustle hustle hustle!

With a little bit of practice it does become easier but even the “Easy Level” on this game will keep you busy.

If the normal size game screen seems just a bit small you can easily get a larger version using the “Full Screen Link” below the game window. Whether your browser is non-maximized as shown here or totally maximized it will fill the entire browser window area.

Conclusion

If you like fast paced games then the Air Hockey extension certainly fits that criteria and will keep you on your toes. Make sure and keep the sound off while playing during Friday afternoon though!

    “If you like fast paced games then the Air Hockey extension certainly fits that criteria and will keep you on your toes.”

    Technically, criteria is a plural noun, and the singular is criterion.

    Wow, Asian Angel shows us a useless extension? I’m so surprised.
