New, 2 comments

Kongregate, a GameStop-owned website for free browser-based online games, now includes downloadable games in its roster, according to a press release posted by Joystiq.

Bomb Buddies, Super Monday Night Combat and Smashmuck Champions, all of which are multiplayer titles, are the first three to hit the service. Super Monday Night Combat is a strategy shooter title, while Smashmuck Champions features arena combat. Bomb Buddies is a Bomberman-style, action-based strategy game with more than 140 levels and eight game modes.

All three titles can be downloaded directly, although users must have a Kongregate account to run them. More games are expected to join the service in the coming weeks.

Speaking about the downloadable additions, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate Jim Greer said that gamers "are looking for increasingly sophisticated games."

"Adding downloadable titles brings a new level of gaming to hardcore players looking for high-definition graphics with more options and content to select from," Greer said.
