Armor Games is an American video game publisher and free web gaming portal. The website hosts over a thousand HTML5 (and previously Flash) browser games. Based in Irvine, California, the site was founded in 2004 by Daniel McNeely.[4]

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. Users can chat within the site and create online profiles. In December 2020, nearing end-of-life of Adobe Flash, the site announced that it will be using the Ruffle emulator for its Flash content, although many Flash games remain inaccessible.

On March 3, 2019, Armor Games revealed that they had a data breach in 2019 and that the database was sold on the Dream Market.[6]
