Create your own online games website
AV Arcade is an arcade script that allows you to effortlessly create a site full of online games. Originally created as a flash games script, AV Arcade now supports all game types including Unity 3D & HTML5 games.
Rewritten to modern standards
AV Arcade 6 is a total rewrite for AV Arcade, rebuilt from the ground-up with powerful new features. Don't worry though, if you need an older version all purchases include a copy of AV Arcade 5.8.
Thousands of games ready to download
AV Arcade implements game feeds from some of the biggest publishers of web games. Straight from the admin panel you can install games to your site with just one click. The game file and thumbnail image are downloaded and all the game info (like description & instructions) are added automatically.
Adding games made easy
With AV Arcade, adding and editing your site's content is super-easy. If you want to add a game that's not included in the game feeds, you have a number of options. Your users can also submit games to your site.
- Enter a URL to the file (both local files and files hosted anywhere on the web)
- Search for a file on your server
- Upload a file from your computer/device
- Download a file from another website to your site
- Enter your own HTML code
- User submissions
You can also schedule content to be published at a certain time in the future. Useful for keeping your site updated even when you're away.
Any web game
AV Arcade supports all web game types. Flash, Unity, HTML5, Shockwave & anything else you throw at it. You can enter custom HTML or even embed a web page in an iFrame.
Supports downloadable games too
Enter a link to any zip, rar or exe file and AV Arcade will provide a download link instead of embedding the game.
Users earn 'points' for completing certain activities on your arcade such as commenting, playing games and referring users. This total is then displayed next to their username throughout their site. Think of it like Xbox's Gamerscore, but for your site!
Ads Before Games
Alongside normal banner advertising you can also add an advert to show users before the game loads.
You can force users to register after playing a certain number of games to encourage users to return to your arcade time and time again.
Built with AVCMS
AVCMS is our new content management system that powers AV Arcade 6. All of these features are included with AV Arcade 6.
Responsive websites adapt to the screen so they look great on screens of all sizes. AVCMS is responsive on both the frontend and the admin. So you can manage your site on any device and your visitors get the best experience.
You can add/remove/edit & reorder numerous sections of the site. For example, you can choose exactly what should be on the homepage of the site, or in the sidebar of the site.
Some of the modules included are a share module (for sharing to Facebook/Twitter & more), a menu module (create custom menus), HTML module (add any HTML) and modules for content so you can create sections like "Top Blog Posts". All modules come with tons of settings like how many blog posts to display, what order, what template style and lots more.
Users, Groups & Permissions
Users can register and set up their profile with an avatar image and cover image. You can optionally enable logging in with one-click using Facebook.
As the admin, you can set-up permissions to allow or deny access to certain functionality & sections.
The AVCMS admin panel is unique & powerful. Page loads are kept to a minimum meaning you can manage most content without moving away to a completely separate page.
You have control over tons of settings and options and managing content couldn't be easier.
Users can comment on the main content types. Comments load as the page is scrolled via AJAX and users can reply to other comments.
