Is it just me or does this site seem to be stealing from Newgrounds:

Humval

I mean all the "authors" are this user named 'game'. It seems that this guy is just making money off these games with the ads he posts on his site. I read on his thing that he shares 50% ad revenue with the author but I really doubt that all these Newgrounds authors banded under one username and submitted all these games.

NG isn't the Alpha and Omega of flash sites. I'd assume the authors posted these games and are getting a cut of the ad revenue. Probably just some guy trying to make another Armor Games or some other game index


I fear for future generations

It's an ugly site and I'm willing to bet it's not very popular. I don't think we have anything to worry about.

Yeah but most of the Newgrounds games are under the same author...

Just because it's not very popular doesn't mean that we should just let them go with stealing hundreds of Flash Games!

Sites stealing games from Newgrounds is old news, there's not much you can do about it.

The layout is so bland and uninteresting, i bet no one ever goes there.

Well, the guy did steal on a very large scale: he has about 3,039 games on his site. I wouldn't be surprised if 2,000 of those came from Newgrounds.
