The Daily Kong

Play of the Day!
The Play of the Day is a daily column where I showcase my personal pick of the best game uploaded the day before.
Elite Forces :Conquest by Badim

A new concept for tower defense (or TD) games.
It looks nice, with the backgrounds, maybe the effects and music, but I have to admit that the game is only good. It has lots of new improvements that the previous Elite Forces games needed. This game is funny, but after a while it gets boring, repetitive, and frustating. The controls are nice, but not enogh to make them something special.
I think that this game needs more action, maybe with the backgrounds, or letting the enemies everywhere, not just in a kind of street. Maybe more characters playing in a same scene.
Anyway, I liked the game, so if you have time, try it.

Retro Play of the Day!
This piece takes a look into the games uploaded to Kongregate One Year ago! That's almost a century on the internet.
Pinch Hitter 2 by Mousebreaker
Sport game, with nice graphics, effects (voices, sounds, etc.) and characters. It is a demo. The game is awesome, I suggest you to try it if you are searching some minutes of fun, but no more than that, because it gets hard and repetitive. It is more a micro game than a game, but still good.

Notable Forum Posts

Here's a place where the forum gets spotlighted upon, every day there are great threads and here's a spot to keep up on at least a few.

[Kongai] Attack Mechanics (in0FAQ)

Kongregate News
Kongregate always has some kind of news, we're in beta! What's going on recently with Kongregate and the Kongregate community.
No news. Kongregate is quiet again: The forums, no new badges, nothing; Maybe more new surprises coming?

Am I slacking, probably. Here is a place where I tell you whats up in my world so you can know what to expect from the blog world.
The results of the voting that had it end today (late in the night) where:

60 (47%)

67 (52%)

So the "no" won, and we are keeping the previous banner.

About the banner thing... I don't know if Fragment is interested or not, but after I saw this poll I played around with a couple ideas for a new banner if he so wanted.

I made both of these fairly quickly, and they aren't done, but I just wanted to see if anyone liked them. The only problem is they don't have much to do with games or Kongregate, but I think they look cool :P

When I tried to check them, it said that "the image or video were moved or deleted" =S.

Malachi said...

Really? They work for me. Are you sure you copied the whole URL?

Maybe this will work...

Malachi said...

Never mind, doesn't accept the HTML to link them.

lightsun said...

I copied the whole URL and I tried again, but never mind, I'm sure that you will show me another day :D.

Malachi said...

Okay, Imageshack should work...

Focus said...

What's wrong with you Mal :p None of the four links work.

Malachi said...


Also, Marh said the imageshack ones worked too. I have no idea why I can't get them to work for everyone else D':

lightsun said...

Focus is right, none of your links work haha, poor Malachi :D

Malachi said...

Well fine. I made a thread with the banners here:

And don't tell me that link doesn't work! :P

Zachary said...

The very first linked worked for me, the rest of you are doing something wrong, also, I sort of like the space one, but think the current one is still better.

URLs, I don't know whats wrong with the other ppls. I love the 2nd one in ur first comment. Nice avatar you got there, btw. I'd appreciate it if you could make one for me with a C instead. much appreciated.
