I just had a look at the new site design after a post called “AppSafari” appeared in the RSS. It led to what seemed to be a review for a CS-game, but without any context. It was there that I noticed the new design of the site.
Some notes (Windows 7 / Firefox 5.0):
- The slideshow on the start page scrolls the page to the top whenever a new slide appears.
- The “Why multiple Choice Games”-link on the “About us” page leads nowhere
- The navigation is a bit confusing. Links in the text lead to sections that can’t be accessed from the navigation tabs, navigation sidebars appear and vanish seemingly at random … More consistency would help here.
- The “Make your own Games” tab contains the user-contributed games. I see two problems with that: 1) Information about making my own games can only be accessed through two links, and it is unclear where those links leads without trying them out; 2) If I’m a player, not an aspiring developer, I’ll probably only check the “Our Games” tab, thus missing all the user-contributed content
-The user-contributed games seem to have lost their pictures
-The purchase links open in the same tab/window, I feel like they should open in a new tab since they’re external links
-The forum is not integrated into the site, thus the only possibility to get back to the main site is pressing the back button x times or typing in the address again. I don’t think the forum needs to be completely integrated, but there should be a link to get back to the main site or it should open in a new window/tab.
From an esthetic point of view, I like the new design very much. It looks modern, simple and I like the color and logo.
Hope this helps,
