WHAT INFORMATION DOES Addicting Games COLLECT?
We analyze non-personal information that we collect on the Addicting Games Sites, or obtain from third parties, and organize it into anonymous user profiles, groups, and audiences, based on factors such as age, gender, geography, interests and online actions. We and our clients and partners then use these anonymous user profiles, groups and audiences to design and deliver customized advertising campaigns or other relevant content. We and our clients also use this data for other related purposes (for example, to do research regarding the results of our online advertising campaigns or to better understand the interests or activities of our visitors.) The behavioral categories we use to customize the ads you may see or for related purposes do not use personal information such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, birth date or social security number.

Addicting Games is the largest casual games site on any of the MANY Internets. At Addicting Games we work with a broad range of developers from across the world. How many developers, you ask? How does 1 million sound? Too high? Yeah, you're probably right. Realistically, it's in the thousands. But that's still a lot!
At Addicting Games, we enjoy building relationships with independent and professional game developers and have many ways to showcase, distribute and promote your game titles.
We want to get the best oringal games in front of as many players as possible, on as many platforms as possible.
If you want to get a game sponsored by Addicting Games, ask yourself if it meets the following criteria:
- Is it original?
Does your game feature some new game mechanic or twist on gameplay? If not, are you at least doing it better than similar games? We look for creativity and most of all fun! Fun doesn't need to be polished and perfect, fun can be a half-done work in progress that has everyone playing for hours.
- Is it a good fit for AddictingGames.com?
There are a lot of great games that simply aren't right for our audience. Check out some of our games to get a feel for our brand. We want games that can be enjoyed by everyone, many of our players are playing from work and schools so we try not to get people fired / suspended for having little downtime playing games.
- Is it mobile-ready?
Can you easily convert the game for mobile platforms? If not, it's not a deal-breaker. But if you can, well that's like asking whether we want a tasty doughnut or a tasty doughnut with a jetpack attached to it.
- Is it addictive errrr ADDICTING?
Does it have that je ne sais quoi? If not, does it speak French and could it tell us what je ne sais quoi means? On the level (pun!), some of the most addicting, replayable games are the simplest. We can't pick up every game we like or every game that's kind of fun. Does your game stand out above the rest?
Please read the following instructions carefully and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Important requirements for HTML5 games.
- The game must be responsive to resizing and can display in landscape or portrait modes. We want your game to appear properly on all modern web browsers and mobile devices.

- Make sure your games can be played on mobile devices, your control scheme should take mobile players into account.
- Please remove all 3rd party tracking from your games. We don't like tracking and spyware and other junk, our players don't like it either.
