Game Distributors

Fetch thousands of games from most popular game distributors:

  • 4J
  • Famobi
  • FreeOnlineGames
  • GameDistribution
  • GameMonetize
  • GamePix

Individual Game Types

Additionally to game fetching, MyArcadePlugin allows you to import games manually. The following games types are supported:

  • HTML5 Games (Zip Files)
  • HTML5 Games (embed code)
  • Flash Games (SWF Files)
  • Schochwave Games (DRC Files)
  • Unity3D Games
  • Embed Codes

Awesome Statistics

MyArcadePlugin will collect plays and play duration for each game and user. Those data will be displayed on the statistics page and you can use them to determinate popular games on your site so you can better optimize the site for your audience.


Works with every WordPress Theme

We have designed MyArcadePlugin to work with every WordPress theme. It will embed game codes automatically to WordPress posts. If you are using MyArcadePlugin with a non arcade theme then set “Embed Game Code” on MyArcadePlugin settings to something else than “Manually”.

If you are using MyArcadePlugin with an arcade theme like Gameleon from Themeforest or any theme from Exells you will need to set this option to “Manually”.
