(Newser) – Flash games aren’t just Tetris rip-offs anymore. Online freebies are more innovative and ambitious than ever, GigaOM says, and they include these five must-play distractions:

  • Grow Cube: A quirky, imaginative puzzler that forces you to think ahead and rewards you with nice animations.
  • Warbears: Lead a crack squad of bear commandos through harrowing missions in this puzzle game.

  • Tanks: This complex take on the classic game of angles gets points for its multiplayer mode.
  • Dai Pai Dong: Keep up with customer demands in this wacky Hong Kong restaurant game.
  • Sprout: Gorgeous hand-drawn art aids the quest of guiding a lone sprout home.
