Armor Games is a game portal website that hosts free Flash-based and HTML5 browser games across a wide variety of genres, including point-and-click adventure, arcade, puzzle, and MMO games. Based in Irvine, California, the site was founded in 2004 by Daniel McNeely.[3][6]

Armor Games primarily hosts curated Flash games and MMOs, sometimes sponsoring their creation. Each game is uploaded and maintained by its original developer, with some including unlockable player achievements. In recent years, Armor Games has begun supporting HTML5 titles. Users can chat within the site and create online profiles.

On March 3, Armor Games revealed that they had a data breach in 2019 and that the database was sold on the Dream Market.[7]
