In recent months, however, rumors have surfaced that the platform would have “died”. Anonymous and influencers cited on social media the nostalgia they feel when hearing the name of the click games.
Among the personalities who remember the site with affection is the influencer Pequena Lô.

After so many memories, why is there a feeling that the site died? O TecMundo decided to investigate this mystery.
End of Flash
The rumors about the death of the click games started mainly after the end of Flash. Adobe technology emerged as graphics development software and was read from specific browser plugins.
A relevant part of the internet in the early 2000s used the solution to shoot videos and animated images that were a little more elaborate. In addition, the tool was also one of the main raw materials of browser games.
Who doesn’t remember Line Rider, for example? The little game consisted of drawing their own sled tracks on the ice so that their doll could perform the most radical maneuvers in the white screen scenario. The title was created in Flash and was fun for many people.
In 2017, Adobe’s own bomb came: Flash would be discontinued and would no longer have official support from December 2020.
Since then, the pages that have this application are appearing disabled and with messages to manually activate the player.
In this case, the Click Jogos games were in Flash. What happened to the site, then? That is the mystery.
So, did Click Jogos die or not?
Based on the assumption that Flash died and the Click Jogos games were in Flash, is it possible to say that the site also died? To end the mystery, let’s say right away: No, Click Jogos is not dead! On the contrary, the site remains more alive than ever! “How?”, You must be asking yourself, reader. Calm down, we’ll explain.
With the end of the flash, the Click Games collection is being updated with games in HTML5. The markup language (set of data applied to a text) has among the benefits the improvement of the performance of a page, acceptance by several devices and offline data storage.
For several years the tool has emerged as a possible replacement for Flash, as it delivers functionality and is lightweight for applications. Sites and platforms of large companies in the market, such as Google, use HTML5.
