Kongregate Savvy Twist on Casual Game Portals

Casual games are a big part of the games on the internet today. One of the newest and most popular game portals puts a new spin on existing games portals with their excellent use of competition and collaboration incentives built into their portal.

Achievements and Challenges

Through the use of achievements or "badges" players are encouraged to complete challenges based on games available on the site. Also for return visitors interest, Kongregate holds weekly challenges where prizes, points and lottery entries can be won. In addition to the achievement badges you can win, you can also collect game cards which can be used in their built in game called Kongai. As with most normal games portals, it is also a sign of the head where the highest scores are displayed.

Game Categories

The popular game categories on Kongregate are range from traditional Tower Defense games, FPS, RPG for a wide variety of online puzzle games.
Chat, community, competition

While offering some of the most popular online web games free, Kongregate also puts every player in the chat room with other people from around the world playing the same game regardless of what is a single player or multiplayer . First, it develops a unique gaming experience largely in the sense of a community, hence the name Kongregate. Secondly, it functions as an informal help desk for any players suffering any type of game or technical issues. Wisely, they also display high scores in the chat room to build a sense of competition which is another important driving force in a game.

Build a developer base

Independent game developers are encouraged to submit their games to Kongregate which can be entered in a competition where the best games voted earn money. First prize for winning the monthly challenges could win a developer 1500 dollars. I applaud Kongregate for encouraging independent small game developers a way to be rewarded for your hard work. In addition, there is also a developer "tip jar" which people can actually donate money to the developers themselves.
