Contest Rules and Game Guidelines
1.) Create a NEW unique flash game or a NEW unique sequel. The game must be original and you cannot submit multiple versions of the same game with small changes. Each game must be either a completely new and unique or a completely new and unique sequel to a game. The games must be original and CANNOT have anything to do with copyrighted materials. Games cannot have anything to do with (Nintendo, Sony, Lord of the Rings, King Author, etc) Games must be new, unique and original. Music must also not be Non-copyrighted. Your games must NOT contain music from any copyrighted soundtrack, musician or artist.

2.) Include the words "ArmorGames.com" in the pre-loader of your game along with a "Armor Games " intro animation. Intro animation can also be downloaded on this page towards the bottom as well. (Click Here)***

3.) Include a "Visit ArmorGames.com" or "Play more Games" link on the menu of the game. The link must open "ArmorGames.com" in a new window when clicked on. You must also include a "Visit ArmorGames.com" or "Play more Games" on the GAME OVER menu as well.

4.) E-mail the ArmorGames Staff the link to the game on Newgrounds after you finish. We will keep track of the Game Name, Author, NG score, and it's current rank position in the contest. The game will then be judged for 1-week by the users of NG before it's final score is locked in. This is done to aviod people from constantly voting for their own entry in an effort to change the score. (E-mail the Staff your Game)

5.) Games must receive @ least 1,000 views to be eligible for entry into the contest.

6.) Games must be submitted by May 15th 2007. On May 25th 2007, the top games with the highest NG score will be awarded the prizes. All prizes will be paid by June 10th via Paypal or Check. In the event of a tie, the entry with the most views will earn the prize.

8.) An author may submit as many games as they like.**

* All rights for submitted Entries belong to ArmorGames.com and the game's author, ArmorGames reserves the right to submit these games to flash based websites. ArmorGames will never claim production credit on your games. ArmorGames will NEVER sell your games . Also, Armorgames staff is not allowed at the Armor Gaming Challenge. All games submitted become joint rights of ArmorGames and the Author. Games submitted for prizes can still be entered in other contest as long as they remained unchanged and contain the 'Armor Games' logos and links.
**Multiple games will give an author a better chance of wining. He/She may collect the number of prizes equel to the number of game entries they submit.
***Winners of over $600 located within the US, must fill out a W9 form before prizes will be awarded.

These rules may change slightly if there are any issues, so make sure to check out the Contest Page for any changes. If you have any questions, contact Contest@ArmorGames.com.

Don't make a game that you already submitted to another sponsor or to Newgrounds already, and relabel it for the contest. In other words, make a new game or finish one of the shelved games that you never got around to.

3. Doesn't Inglor usually make these posts, i didn't know you worked for AG, i just thought you were a constant sponsor :P.

Damn, the last one wasn't really a question though :P. Anyway, thanks for the quick reply :). Out of interest, does anyone know any tutorials that will take the Tutorial Collab as an entry?

So the 1st prize isn't actually the 1st? I'm confused, how can you get the grand prize?

Good question, I would like to see an answer to that one :)
I might join in with a game, it depends really :)
There's no real use submitting a "decent" game, as it will win nothing. Either I submit something good, or submit nothing ;)

It's funny that today the contest is announced because my brother just came to me with a great idea for an FPS iRL game, and I was like "Nice, but hold onto that for the next Armorgames contest"

I realize this is biting the hand that feeds me, but it is dissapointing that all the little bonuses, like +3.80 and +4.0 scores are completely lost, meaning if I don't get front page it's gonna be tough for me to make any money at all, with all the people that are going to do this. =/


Good artists copy. Great artists get banned from the Audio Portal.

Quick question, do the games have to have any sort of theme? Or is it anything goes. (I remember in some of your earlier ones you have to have medevil stuff of similar things)

I got sudden amazing inspiration in the shower for a word/board game. Shower is the best place for thinking. Ever.

Is it considered unique if it is based on a gameboy game, but everything is changed?

By unique I'm pretty sure he means a unique game engine. As in, not just using the same engine from a game you make 3 weeks ago.

I'm in, I wan't to finish a few games for this so artists either pm me or e-mail me.

I think it means unique as in something new that hasn't been done and isn't based on a game that's been made before.
