‘Mouse Only’ Web Games

At SpecialEffect we’re often looking out for games that can be played using just a mouse cursor and a left click (without the need to drag), as these can be suitable for playing with a range of assistive mouse controls. On a recent search of games hosted on the Not Doppler, OnlineGames and Kongregate websites, we tried a range of mouse-controlled games and compiled a short list of some we found could be played this way.

We also tried these games via eye gaze control with a direct cursor control method, using a Tobii 4C with Tobii Gaze Point software. This method of eye gaze allows control of the mouse cursor position within the game in a similar way to a standard mouse – often a required element of gameplay. Non-direct methods of mouse cursor emulation, when using eye gaze, may not be compatible with the style of gameplay within these games.

Please note that although compatible with this combination of hardware and software, some of these games require faster reactions or more accurate control than others and many require a high level of mouse cursor control precision.

Where available, the age ratings have been placed in brackets. You can find the rationale for the age ratings on each game’s website. Please note that the websites and games may require Adobe Flash to be installed and run. They may also include adverts, some which may be accidentally clicked and opened. Many of the games will also be available on other web games websites.
