Do you guys know any other sites that are like kongregate in that they have high-quality flash games? It doesn’t have to have achievements.
Oh, and if this is in the wrong section, would you please tell me?

Newgrounds is the biggest.
Armour is tied with us on number of exclusives but they get the better ones.
That Nouboa (sp?) has a ton of multiplayer games and lots of achievements. But the overall quality is quite poor.

Nouboa? It’s called Nonoba. And it sucks, don’t go there. The worst achievements for the worst games.

Wow, way to jump up my ass. >_>
Some of the achievements are ok but they’re all uploader made so some are ridiculous or don’t even work.
The multiplayer is better than what we have though.

There is no site really “like” Kongregate.

There’s hundreds of flash games site, but Kongregate is the sole great flash game community.

Interesting, I’ve signed up with Nonoba previously (though the site is wholely unfamiliar) and does feature a bunch of neat APIs. Yes, the achievements are developer created, but really they’re basically the same as the dev including them in the game itself and creating “high score” listings on Kongregate (heck, my last game submitted most of the ingame achievements separately, some I didn’t feel were worth Kong recording (i.e. reading the instructions) but I did report a good number of them.

It looks like they also have “save game” API stuff, you can submit just about anything and get it back later:

SetUserData method

public static function SetUserData(key:String, value:String, callback:Function):Void

Store a string value on the server.
For each user and game you can store several different key/value pairs on the server.
If you call this method with a key that already exists, the existing value will be overwritten. 

See also: GetUserData

They also have a mini-purchase API (i.e. the user can buy ingame items with money) which is almost 1 step ahead of the current Kongregate Kreds system (admittedly I don’t know that that is where the Kreds system is going), although the Dev does only get 70% (which is a lot, considering the number of the micro-payment-thigns seen on XBox live).

Kongregate will still be my home, but I’ll certainly consider uploading things there as well—at least the games I make that aren’t going to be Kong exclusives.

Epicly.

If you’re looking for a site with a similar achievements system, Nonoba is okay.

The other top sites that you can find a variety of decent flash games on are Newgrounds, AddictingGames, and Armor Games. You’ll find a lot of games on Armor Games that you’ve already played on Kongregate because their Head of Game Development uploads games on here frequently. (They also have their own account)

Nonoba has a lot of poorly designed requirements for badges. Also unless they did a major site redesign that sites layout stinks.

try maxgames

None. You must stay with Kongregate. Forever…

Nonoba has lesser quality badges and smaller community/userbase but is similar.
Newgrounds has a chat room (whooo no chat) and porn
Armorgames is apparently adding something similar to badges soon, but it is best at making games IMO rather than a super site like us

Guaranteed, the only reason most of their members go on.

NG is for beginner flash makers. Kongregate is for intermediate game makers and skilled ones.

There are about 10 bad games on this site for every good one.

Did anyone check the post date and the OP’s last login?

This thread got bumped not one, not two, not three, but FOUR times.

In my opinion here are the best: Kongregate, Newgrounds, ArmorGames

Its best to NOT look for a website like kongregate because thats nearly impossible to find such a website… Kongregate is probably the best flash gaming website for communication, find new developers, friends, multiplayer, and beginner development… So dont even dare lol. Cheers :)
