Adventure Quest is a free online adventure game that will run on most computers. It is a browser-based adventure game where you battle monsters in turn-based combat. You can go on quests, learn magic spells, have a pet to go with you on your travels, and tons more! This anime-style game is great for fans of the genre, younger gamers, or those who like the slower-pace of turn-based games. It looks a little cheesy, but still can be quite addicting.

It a remarkably inventive world where you really get to indulge your creative side.

You simply cannot have a guide to free adventure games online without menitioning Runescape. Runescape has a massive following of devoted players and it really is one of the best games considering it qualifies as free, 3-D, multi-player and browser-based.

Learn skills, go on quests, level up- and watch your back for other players who might attack you at any moment. Runescape will turn you in to a sword-wielding dragon-slayer!
