Just Released! My christmas project – kilogames.com. Kilogames is an arcade site with online games. I used PHPArcadeScript to build kilogames. PHPArcadeScript seems to be one of the best and most popular scripts for making an arcade site. Installing PHPArcadeScript was very easy and did not take more than 20 minutes. Changing the look and feel and customising it with all the features I needed was also very easy -with some basic knowledge of PHP and CSS-. In total the whole project took about 2 to 3 days.
For hosting kilogames.com I followed a friend’s advice and used Dreamhost. With Dreamhost I get 240Gig space -which is more than enough for kilogames-, pretty good speed and massive bandwith limits.
As there are many gaming sites out there, to make kilogames competitive, I’ve decided to give some edge by:
– Ommiting adds of any type
– Releasing 5 new top games every 8 hours
– Using large game icons throughout
– Presenting tooltips with game info to make the game selection easier
– Keeping the layout as clean as I could.
I hope you’ll enjoy kilogames.com. Any feedback you care to give about the style or the mechanics of kilogames.com would be greatly appreciated!
