ARMOR GAMES : The new beta site vs. the 'old' site

  • Announcement
  • Updated 3 years ago
We're in the process of rebuilding Armor Games, and have released the beta site (beta.armorgames.com) so you can be one of the first to play on it.

"Beta" means 'we're still in development'. You'll see constant enhancements in the coming weeks, as we release new features. At the moment, the beta site is just a taste of what's to come.

Armor Games is all about playing the best flash games on the web. Right now, that's what the beta is about: finding and playing games.

Soon we'll be re-adding player accounts, game rating, favoriting games, and everything you've seen on the 'old' Armor Games. And then you'll see a host of new stuff that will make the new Armor Games even better.

In the meantime, everything is still working fine at the 'old' Armor Games (www.armorgames.com). If you want to create/edit your account, rate and favorite games, make comments, etc... the 'old' site is the place to do it.

Thanks very much for playing on Armor Games!

I like the old one a lot better the new one is too crowded, less appealing to the eye and you can get lost in it quite easily

I prefer the old way better, It is less complex, and gives you what you want quicker. The new version is filled with all these different things, some useless, and its a bit too much.

I don't like it, it looks like all the other game websites which usely are crap. If i want something new to armor games it would a top rated section and a random game button to the normal armorgameswebsite

I like it, my favorite thing is how it keeps track of the games you've played, i look forward to maybe an in depth ranking system based on games played, and other aspects

I greatly enjoy the new website, and I find that the best feature is the thumbnails - so being that they show a picture of actual gameplay, instead of a thumbnail that may have little to no relation to the game itself. I found that the old thumbnails made me steer away from most good games, and play the ones that were actually rather bad. So in saying, I greatly enjoy the new website beta and hope the full version is up soon. Great job, guys!

Fave by going to the ''old'' site and fave it there...
That's how I fave but it would be much easier for a Fave button that WORKS on the new site...
If they have a Fave Button they should make it work at least!

i much prefer the old look. The new one just looks like a copy of kongregate's website and i really liked the easy usability and layout of the old website. i'm sure many will like it, especially the new way of getting to categories, but its not for me.

that said the way it remembers what you've played is good but i would MUCH prefer that feature to be added to the old look.

I actively come to armor games over other websites (like kongregate) because i like the easy to use format.

Shame to change a winning formula in my eyes... I'd recommend putting a poll on the beta site to see which one others prefer because most could probably not bother to write so here.

I like that idea.

And I can't rate a game or fave it
And there's no random game button anymore

Why can't all the games show up somewhere
I don't prefer to search up every thing

I like the background of the Beta site but it's missing a lot that's on the old one.
I can't rate
I can't fave
I can't press the random game button (because there isn't one)

The feedback button should be bigger

New site too complex to browse, background style distracting, new and hot games mixed (dosn't say which is which), game pictures too small... etc, etc, etc. I expected better.

I have to say, I really do not like the new Armorgames. It looks nice and all, but... the very first thing I thought of was "it looks like a blue Kongregate"... and I'd think you guys wouldn't want that connection at all (I prefer you guys over kongregate anyways). I like the old AG because it's different from the other web game sites. If you're going to make a new AG, make a new one that's still different, not a blue Kongregate, please.

Oh, and to everyone complaining about not being able to rate games and all that... let me quote the first message that you obviously didn't read:

"Soon we'll be re-adding player accounts, game rating, favoriting games, and everything you've seen on the 'old' Armor Games. And then you'll see a host of new stuff that will make the new Armor Games even better. "

I like the new site! But my idea would be to add more new games. I come to Armor Games as often as I can, but you all upload so much content sometimes I get behind. I feel like with only 3 new games on the main page I would probably miss out on some fun times. I like how the current design has many new games shown at once, so I can easily see anything I've missed.
