1. What is FunOrb?
FunOrb is a collection of java-based browser games that you can access and play on your PC. The games are designed to be enjoyed over short periods or long sessions, and cover every genre of gaming.
2. Is FunOrb free?
There are three ways of playing FunOrb games: as an unregistered free player, as a registered free player, and as a member. Free players can access most game content, highscores tables and many Achievements, and those with the sufficient number of Achievements will be able to access the FunOrb forums. Members have access to the forums no matter how many Achievements they have, and they can also enjoy extra expansions for many of our games.
3. Do I need to register?
No, but registered free players are able to store their highscores, their Achievements, and their progress in some of the games. Registered users also gain access to Orb Points and Coins as well as some of the multiplayer games.
4. Can I play the multiplayer games?
To play most of the multiplayer games you must be a registered free player or a member. Some of the multiplayer games are for members only, so you will have to be a member to play them.
5. I have a RuneScape account; will I be able to use it on FunOrb?
Your RuneScape and FunOrb accounts are connected. Both of these products are made by Jagex, so you will be able to use your RuneScape account and password on FunOrb.

Orb Points are another way of showing off just how amazing your gaming skills really are. You earn them by obtaining Achievements in FunOrb games.

The Orb Points table will show you where you stand in the worldwide rankings for Orb Points and Achievements.
