Armor Games

From CLG Wiki

1st Logo (2005-2006)

Logo: On a light blue background, we see snow falling down from the sky as the camera pans over some mountains. The camera stops on a grey castle covered with snow. The camera then zooms out to show the mountains again and a forest. The camera keeps zooming out to show a white bird flying through the sky. The camera then stops zooming out, now also showing a guy in metal armor holding a sword standing on a cliff of snow. The grey text "ARMOR GAMES" in a futuristic font fades in over the castle, with the word ".com" in white underneath it. Then, everything fades to black.

FX/SFX: The snow, the camera moving around and the "ARMOR GAMES" text fading in.

Music/Sounds: A catchy rock tune that slows down near the end.

Availability: Rare. Could be found on games made/shown on their website during the logos usage.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2005-2008)

Logo: On a white background, A dark grey castle with a white outline zooms out quickly to the left. The screen flashes white two times during this. After the castle has zoomed to the left, the grey word "ARMOR" and the green word "GAMES" fades in to the right of the castle. The words point down to the bottom right corner. Everything fades to white afterwards.

FX/SFX: The castle zooming out and the text fading in and pointing to the corner. All done in a 3D manner.

Music/Sounds: Just the sound of a lightning strike.

Availability: Rare. Could be found on games made/shown on their website during the logos usage. It will probably be easier to find this logo because it existed longer.

Editor's Note: The lightning and the fast movements might be scary to some.

3rd Logo (2005-2008)


Logo: On a black background, a light beige shield with a black medieval tower zooms in from the middle. The shield zooms back out a little. The red text "ARMOR GAMES" flashes in front of the shield. The URL of their website appears below it. Afterwards, two swords with black handles appear behind the shield with a small white glow around them. The entire logo flashes and then fades out.

Variants:

  • A slower version exists.
  • Sometimes, the white text "DEVELOPED BY" appears above the logo.

FX/SFX: The shield, the text and the swords appearing.

Music/Sounds: None.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The slower version has a heavenly choir and a drumbeat. When the two swords appear, the sound of a sword unsheathing is heard.
  • On Dark Cut 2, a subtle dark rumble can be heard.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be found on games such as MouseGame, Amberial, Dark Cut, Dark Cut 2, and other flash games from that time.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (2007-2008)

Logo: On a black background, two swords (similar to the swords in the previous logo) quickly come up from the bottom and begin clashing. After the swords have clashed two times, they clash for a third time forming a X. The same shield from the previous logo, now with the black text "ARMOR GAMES" stacked on each other instead of the tower, zooms in from the middle after the swords have formed the X. After a while, the swords zoom away to the top and the shield zooms out. For the entirety of the logo, the text "Developed by" is above the logo.

Variant: A slower version exists.

FX/SFX: The swords clashing and the shield zooming in and out.

Music/Sounds: Only the sounds of the swords clashing, and a "woosh" when the swords zoom away.

Music/Sounds Variant: A more usual version exists, consisting of some different clashing sounds and a woman singing (the same sound that was used for the Windows Longhorn startup sound). The "woosh" is the same.

Availability: Rare, seeing as the logo was used for about a year. Can be found on games developed by them during the logos usage.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Logo (2008-)


Logo: On a black background, two swords (similar to the two previous pairs) come respectively from the left and right and begin clashing. Like before, after the swords have clashed two times, they clash for a third time and form a X. After that, a blue shield fades in front of the swords and zooms out a little. A blue glow appears behind the swords and the shield. The white text "Armor Games" zooms in quickly below the logo and then zooms out a bit. Then, the entire logo fades to black.

Variants:

  • Sometimes, the logo is fully white with the blue glow fully gone. The text "Developed by" is above the logo.
  • A quicker version exists.
  • On Exitpath, the entire logo, including the text, glows white.
  • On Learn to Fly 3, the logo is on a grey background and it takes a random amount of time (due to lag) for the third clash and the rest of the logo to play.

FX/SFX: The swords clashing, the shield appearing, the blue glow appearing and the text zooming in and out.

Music/Sounds: A heavenly choir and a drumroll. The sounds of the swords clashing can be heard during this.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The quicker version has a shorter choir, a shorter drumroll and different clashing sounds.
  • Sometimes, the game's music plays over the logo.

Availability: Very Common. This logo can be found on practically any game on their website or any game they have developed.

Editor's Note: This logo is one of the longest living and most liked browser game logos out there. Many may remember this logo from their childhood.

6th Logo (2011-)

Logo: On a black background, the white text "ARMOR GAMES" fade in the middle. To the left of the text, a white shield with a black crown and sword can be seen. The entire logo slowly zooms in for the entire duration of the logo.

Variant: On some games, the background is yellow, the white text is black and the logo is on top of the text.

FX/SFX: Only the logo zooming in.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. This logo can be seen on newer games by the company, but it's usually replaced with the previous logo.

Editor's Note: This logo has gained some criticism for being too simple and modern. It has gotten more hate due to the fact that this is the company's official logo.
