I liked the basic format, colors and so on, but you lost me the moment the onload popup hit my screen.

The sniper game refused to load, and since I refuse to allow java active in my browser, it's my guess that is the cause.

I fail to see why so many "entertainment" sites insist on using ad popup windows, speaking for myself, it simply annoys the living hell out of me and usually cuts short the browse session....let alone convinces me to not do any click-throughs :-]

I like it, agree with the ad pop up, didn't personally happen for me, but either way I guess we've all got bills to pay!

Worst bit is that now I can't stop playing :P

Hello

Overall, OK site, you should use smaller picture for all your flash games
and smaller font would be better.
How come the "Log-in" box is not working? you working on it?

I have nothing against advertisement as long as it's sublte.
But the " an error occured on your computer" flashing and looking like a windows error is a real turn-off...

The sniper game didn't work for me either

I think that you need graphics, or if you are not graphicl, colours, it is way too plain. also a bit too many adds

Does this message display all the time? It should optimally be made to only display if you dont have those, but if you cant do that, then atleast move it below the news.

For your dropdown category selection you should make it automatic, instead of having to click the button. The clicks add up.

With the sections that are non-existant, it woudl be helpful to mention when you are introducing that feature.

There are so many other game sites. You need to make yours extra special if you want to succeed. Good luck with it.

The first thing that I notice when I look at your site is advertisements. The advertisement at the top is bigger than your logo. Also, the actual design of the logo is not very appealing. If you made it easier to read, and a bit bigger, it would make your site much more appealing.

The second thing I noticed is your choice of font. Rather than use Times New Roman, use something more along the lines of Arial. It is easier on the eyes and makes the reader more willing to actually read what you have on your site.

The last thing that I noticed on your home page is that your email address is a mailto link. These annoy me and I don't use outlook, and it would be much better if the link brought you to an email form that you just had to fill in the textboxes and click submit.

That was just my humble opinion and good luck on your site.

If you're going to have ads at the top, do text ads so things arent jumping all over the place. Maybe you have too many ad boxes? Shave one or both off the bottom...? I can almost guarantee that 2 boxes dont give you that much more than one box.

I am not a big fan of the Logo. It is hard to read.

I also think you should make the site more of a fixed width design. I just think it would lay out better.

i wanna give my review comments as
your site provides quite interesting games.

http://www.ugplay.com/

but i think that index page takes too much loading time.

you should not provide too heavy links on index page.

Thanks

Hey, Author

Simple , clean design...but pop ups. May be it is your commercial part to use popups, but users dont like them. You have adsense which is good.

If I was a owner of this site first thing that I did change the logo, kinda not stylish i would say for this type of web, but generally site is fine.

I like the sign at the top right corner of the page. I glanced at the arrangement of the games and it was alright. Your site does not make me want to stay when I come to it. I suggest that you find a talented flash designer to whip your site into shape (me for instance). If you did this from purely html - that is impressive but if not- you have a long way to go. Have a good day.

the layout isnt overly fancy which i think is a good thing but the grey is a little boring
u have laid it out with a mix of divs and tables to its not too lazy... web developers consider table layouts to be lazy... but that is a good mix for functionality

only real problem is the pages being individual seperate pages, it would b brilliant if they were loaded from a database or php includes... and also a LOT easier to maintain
and the games r good

First thing that comes to mind is remove the popups! Somehow your popup gets through both IE's and Google Toolbar's popup blockers. I think it's important to remember that the power in the Internet lies in empowering the user and keeping the user in control. I have these popup blockers to remain in control, but you take that away from me. Just a bad first impression.

Its a nice site, love the logo! But it needs more color and/ or grpahics. As its standing, its quite bland. I like how the content is laid out but your popups/unders really annoy me. The games are great and you should really promote your site by joining topsites for instance. Also, as a note, define the seperation between each game in the index and change your Times New Roman Font....other than that, your site looks great. Good luck...
