Facebook has upped the ante this week, yesterday they launched a new cross-platform experience called “Instant Games” which can now be found on their messenger and Facebook news feed for both mobile and web. 

According to a statement from our Facebook overlords: “This new games experience allows people to easily discover, share, and play games without having to install new apps.”

It can be found through a new game-controller icon below the message box bit.

“Featuring score-based games, leaderboards, and group thread conversations to challenge and compete against anyone on Messenger.”

Some of the 17 games you can play include:

PAC-MAN

Galaga

Space Invaders

Everwing

Request for Kirby, please add Kirby to the mix.

Goodbye job, hello high Galaga scores.
