Zodiac Reactor Released on Kongregate

Posted by: Sam Horton on Jun 4, 2009 at 2:45 PM



Just finished things up today with the new game: Zodiac Reactor! You can give it a shot over at Kongregate!

For the sponsorship deal, I decided to try out Flash Game License, to see if they are as great as I've been hearing. I have to say, their service is worth every penny! The game was on their site for about a week, and not only did I get some great feedback for improvements, but several sponsors that I've personally had trouble contacting in the past were able to take a look at it.


Check the game out over at Kong, and be sure to vote for it if you get a chance!

Oroboros Featured as Kongregate Weekly Challenge Game

Posted by: Sam Horton on Sep 8, 2007 at 1:13 AM


Oroboros Challenge on KongregateI wanted to personally thank all of the people who wrote reviews and linked to Oroboros. You have really helped bring tons of players to the site, and things have been buzzing ever since.

Oroboros also received a Kongregate front page challenge! Challenges are used to distribute custom cards for a new game they are working on called Kongai. You can obtain the "Blood Vial" card by making it to dimension 9 in Oroboros!

With so many eyes on Oroboros, the bug reports were bound to arrive. I spent all day yesterday trying to put out fires and make sure it was working properly so people could enjoy the challenge. The biggest complaint so far has been that the game is a bit unclear and people don't quite understand the objective. That has been remedied in the updated version!

Oroboros is an arcade-style game, simply put. You move the mouse around and collect stuff. Some stuff will hurt you, some will help you, some will do both. I've seen 10 year old kids pick this game up in as many seconds, and I've seen others that quit after the first failure. Most games require a certain trial period of playing, learning and failing before you can become an adept player -Oroboros is no different

Play Oroboros Now!
