How to play Flash games after Adobe discontinues Adobe Flash Player



On the 31st of December Adobe will be finally pulling the plug and formally making Adobe Flash Player End Of Life (EOL).

Going into 2021 and beyond many major browsers like Google Chrome and FireFox will also start removing support for Flash marking the end of an era.
