Step # 2 – Playing an Action Game

You can see on the Action page that there are many games, some of these are shooting, some are not. It’s going to be fairly obvious which ones are shooting, for example it would be a good guess that “Commando” involves guns – there are guns in the picture, and, well, it’s called Commando. Let’s click on this one. A new page will open and the game will start to load. Click “Play”, select a character and the game will load – this can take sometime depending on the speed of your internet connection. Once it loads you can just start playing the game.
