A dressup game portal: SmallDressUp.com

Hi guys! I apologize for the very long break between posts, but life just gets in the way sometimes 😉

To get things going again, I have decided to do a few reviews of the “Game Portal” style sites. This type of site generally hosts games by various artists, but they don’t normally require memberships or anything like that. In that way they are rather like directories, except for the fact they have brought the content to one place instead of sending you elsewhere.

SmallDressUp.com falls into this category of sites. It does have ads that play before each game, but so far they don’t seem too bad. There are also ads around the content, but far less of them than can be found on some sites of this type. Advertisement wise, the biggest downside to this directory is a pop up add that seems to come up. My browser blocks pop ups, so I’m not sure what it is. But I always find them fairly irritating.

The navigation on this site is very straight forward and simple. Categories are listed down the left and seem fairly well-organized. The dolls are mostly the simple “drag & drop” or “click to change” style without many interesting features, but there are lots of them. So if you are looking for variety, this is a good choice. The artists they allow seem to all have clean appealing art styles.

Overall the site seems fairly good considering what it is. I enjoyed the content I tried out, and as long as you are fine with pop up ads (or have a good blocker) it should be a decent little portal to visit.
