The Power Rangers have been around for nearly 20 years, and feature a campy mix of superheroes, villains, martial arts and more. There have been many different iterations of the series, but the Power Rangers remain popular with grade-schoolers, especially around Halloween.
The Power Rangers online games we recently checked out offer mostly quick bursts of game play, and are built for fast, replayable game sessions as opposed to deeper more involved adventures.
It can be a bit confusing finding Power Rangers games, too. They used to appear on Disney XD, but all their games have since been removed from there and can only be found on Nickelodeon, where the show now airs.
KidZui makes it easy to find Power Rangers games, though, via KidZui’s free, kid-safe web browser by typing “Power Rangers Games” in the search box and clicking on “Power Rangers Ninja Games.” If you do end up on the Disney XD site, simply hit the back button in the Kidzui browser, and find one that will take you to the official Power Rangers site. Here, you’ll find links directly to a few different Power Rangers games.
Power Rangers Samurai
Choose from any of the six Power Rangers and play against the backdrops of different “episodes.” Kids will run, jump and of course battle their way against enemies. Kids will find lots of punching, kicking and swordplay, as would be expected from the Power Rangers. If your kids really enjoy playing this, there are so many different levels and different characters to play them with that there is plenty of replayability. This game also offers rewards for different achievements.
Power Rangers Flip Out
It’s a race to see how far you can run, as you must jump or slide to avoid obstacles and enemies. The farther you run the higher your score. This is the type of game where kids will want to play “just one more time” to try and beat their highest score. Since one mistake ends your run, this game requires precise timing and focus.
Power Rangers Fireball Run
This is another game where you’re trying to keep going for as long as possible, and the longer you go, the more points your score. In this one, you start with a train of five Zords, and must move them up and down along the street to avoid the fireballs. Each time you get hit, you lose a Zord, and the game is over when they’ve all disappeared.
Power Rangers Defense Academy
This game is all about defense. You’re in the Power Rangers training center, and you must block the incoming shots and energy attacks from other Power Rangers. Use your mouse and click, but you’ll have to be fast. Three hits and your game is over.
Power Rangers Mask Lab
Design and print your own Power Rangers mask with this cool coloring game. Choose from any of three style or six colors, and you can even add your own print for a personal touch. When you’re done, you can print your mask so you can play Power Rangers at home.
Power Rangers Ninja Storm
This “side-scrolling” game is very reminiscent of some of the earliest video games we remember playing, like Donkey Kong. Controls are simple, with players running left, right or jumping as they avoid obstacles and collect lightning bolts to unlock the door that will lead to the next level. This is simple, classic video-game fun in Power Rangers form.
Power Rangers Firestorm
Your mighty Power Ranger has a choice to make in this quick shooting game. Will you put out the fires, or shoot lasers at the Megazords? You’ll have to shoot and switch quickly, as your stationary Ranger must rotate all around the screen to try and put out all the fires while taking as little Megazord damage as possible. Game play is fast and a bit difficult.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder
In some puzzle games, you need to match tiles, or flip positions in order to remove stones. But Power Rangers Dino Thunder is as simple as it gets: all players need to do it point their mouse at a stone and it disappears. The goal is to clear each level as quickly as possible, or at least within the given time limit. We love how it’s so simple to play, yet offers quite a challenge.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder Power Puzzler
This puzzle game offers three different scenes, but requires players to be quick and assemble the pieces as quickly as possible. Pieces are uniquely shaped, and we liked how they appeared on one side of the screen and there was room to assemble them on the right side.
In addition to these games, there are also cool Power Rangers printables and activities for your family, such as a giant poster that prints in different sections that you must print out and put together, or coloring pages. What’s your favorite Power Ranger activity? Let us know in the comments, we’d love to hear from you.
