Welcome to Kongregate Beta, the Web site where you can play over 1,000 games for free! What makes this site so different from all those other free game sites, you ask? Well, here you can register and become part of a community of gamers and developers who work together to make the most amazing game site online today. Another difference is that if you are a game developer, you can upload your games here for people to play as well!
I’ve started you out on the About page, so you can find out what the goals of the site are for the community. Navigation is fairly simple. I’d recommend heading to the Home page from here, simply by clicking Home.
Notice on the Home page there is a section underneath the main navigation strip (Home, Games, Upload, etc.) that reads “Hello, are you new to Kongregate?” You’ll find a link there that will lead you to some recommended games. These seem to all be five star games that have gotten good ratings from the community as well!
Now, you can play the games without registering. However, you need an account to chat, upload games and such. The games are Flash games also, so you’ll need a Flash player to play them. You can download one right here.
Once you select a game, you’ll notice that the instructions, ratings, comments and such are on a navigation strip above it. On the side of the game, you will find the chat window and if you scroll down the page, you’ll find the details of the developer who made the game.
At the top of the page, you’ll find links to log in, get help and more. Right now, I’m madly addicted to playing this game called Warbears. Also, make sure you report any bugs you find on the site so that they can continue to fine tune everything.
I hope you’ll enjoy playing these games as much as I already have!
