meet the new bontegames!

Since the bontegames blog was born back in 2007 the look of this site has not changed much. But today after 2045 posts and 16085194 pageviews I decided it was time for some fresh paint! So please enjoy the brand new bontegames!
All my games are in the left column and all the navigation things are in the right column. Another new feature I'm busy adding (back tracking 2045 posts) is labels below each post, which will allow you to quickly get all the posts from a certain developer or from a certain game series, give it a try!
So enjoy, and please let met know if you like the new look. Do you want to see more things that you think are missing? Let me know in the comments!
By the way, I have also recently redesigned my bartbonte.com page.

Hey Bart. Like the new look. Still easy to navigate. Every body likes a new suit to wear now and then. Thanks for all the cool game links over the years. I like your games and how they have evolved. Less platformers, more escapes for my taste.

I'm usually quite negative about changes... but your new style makes me happy!
I still recognise the place, but it looks cleaner and lighter. Well done!
And thank you, thank you, thank you as usual :)

The new site theme looks better than the old one, but I think that this comments page need revamping, since when you click "4 comments" it redirects you to blogger.com and not the actual blog post.

The redeisgned site looks sharp.

Looks great, Bart! The labels are a very good idea. Thank you so much for this blog over the years.

I personally like platformers more than escapes, but to each their own. You do a pretty good job of finding a balance between all the types of games for me.

Michaela said...

I really like your new style! Keep up the awesome work. :)

As I said on the FB wall, this looks very nice, well done... the only thing we are missing is THE BRAND NEW SUGAR SUGAR GAME THAT YOU PROMISED US !!! :)

Kani said...

Actually, Bontegames is one of the only game referencing blog I visit when I'm looking for a online game to play.
The other one is Jayisgames.
I wish you all the best!

This is fantastic! I'm excited about the new label feature. Your personal website's new look is also very appealing! Thank you for all of the work you put into this blog.

Grey text is very trendy but be aware that it's harder to read.

Whitespace is trendy too, but it means more scrolling.

So the style is pleasing but the functionality is a backward step. Please consider.

Nice, fresh look. Definitely a step up. I don't see any problems with white space or readability.

As always, thanks for all you do.

I still have a penguin background for my computer desktop and now I can find it in bontegames! Thanks for the new look!

Can you give us a screenshot of the dancing guy in klikwerk for a new desktop background? I already have the penguins as my lock screen background, the beach thing from off to work we go as my desktop and I now need one for my tiles!

This is nice! I usually don't like changes, especially after things are the same for awhile, but I like this!

Also, just wondering, when is a new factory balls game coming out??

Cyn said...

Nice! Like the tags. Thanks for keeping the site going for your fans! :D

A good new site design. Loads very quickly and good organization.

Fee said...

Looking good! Thanks for your great work, your page is my first go-to place for online games!

I'd lose the grey text and go with black.

This has been one of my favorite sites for years.

Thanks Bart.

I think the new format will be a bit of adjusting, but I like it! Thanks for all the games!

Nice new look Bart, and thank for your continuous effort.

I have one small comment which I hope it can be helpful; in the new look, when you search for a label, there is no counter for how many post are there, not even how many pages to show those post, so when you scroll down the page and press "older posts" - which is ALWAYS there, you will end up in a page saying "NO POSTS WITH LABEL XXXX".

Other than that I find the new look amazing.

Thanks again and always :)
