If you were a kid in the mid-2000s, you might have childhood memories of loading up games on websites such as Disney Channel or Nickelodeon on your family computer and playing for hours. 

You might think those games, much like some of our favorite throwback shows they’re based on, are long gone with the times. However, thanks to the internet, there’s a way to still play some of those games and jog your memory like you couldn’t imagine.

We’ve rounded up 10 throwback games you can still play online, with links to where to play them. It’s a great way to spice things up if you’re bored stuck at home to give yourself a dash of wholesome nostalgia. 

625 Sandwich Stacker

Inspired by Lilo And Stitch, this game used to be our shit when we were younger. It was an art to stack the biggest sandwich while making sure you could avoid stacking on garbage and catch the top piece of bread.

The Impossible Quiz

Remember this nonsense quiz where you had to memorize all of the answers, too? For some reason, it would entertain us for hours. Test your memory to see if you can actually recall any of the answers and then wonder why your brain chose to store that useless information for so long. 

Pizza Party Pickup

This Suite Life Of Zack & Cody-inspired game is basically a rip-off Pac-Man, but it’s just way more fun when it includes the show’s iconic characters goofing around a hotel. Honestly, this game is much harder now to play as adults, at least for us, but we definitely get why we loved it so much. 

The World’s Hardest Game

This is similar to The Impossible Quiz in its simplistic design, but this game is actually really hard. We can fondly remember playing this with our friends after school and seeing who could make it the longest. 

Lizzie McGuire: Outfit Design

This game is so 2000s, down to the outfits in the closet. It’s pretty boring to play now, as all you do is choose between a handful of outfits to put Lizzie McGuire in. There’s really no point to it, but we still remember loving to play it anyway. 

SpongeBob, You’re Fired!

This game only fueled our need to taste a real-life Krabby Patty from SpongeBob SquarePants. You try to not mess up any orders at the Krusty Krab, but it’s definitely a challenge once things start speeding up. 

Cory’s Money Maze

Cory Baxter from That’s So Raven was so memorable for his antics and schemes to make money, which is what this game is based on. Compared to other Disney Channel games, it’s pretty basic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun way to kill some time on the couch. 

All of the My Scene games

These games, based on dolls, were all about fashion and design. The makeup game in particular is probably why we have such an affinity for dyeing our hair and trying out crazy looks. Plus, the room styler gave us an itch to redesign our own rooms to make them look like a space of our own. 

Jumpin’ Jungle Party

This game, based on the old show Brandy & Mr. Whiskers on Disney, is really hard to play now. When we were little, we remember playing this for hours at expert level. Try it out now to see if you can get your skills back or at least laugh at how bad you are at it now. 

Bueno Rufus

This Kim Possible game is also quite a challenge, but it’s addicting to play. You’re in charge of making orders at a restaurant and have to serve nachos, burritos and ice cream without messing up, which sounds much easier than it actually is.
