Game Review Information

If you are a publisher and you have a casual game you would like reviewed, you have come to the right place! We are constantly evaluating games for review in Casual Game Insider magazine and on our blog, as well as inclusion in our Recommended Games list. Our reviews have the potential to be seen by thousands of casual gamers and retailers, and can help supplement your marketing strategy. We also offer many other services to publishers — please see our advertising and marketing page for more information.

The process for game reviews differs for published games and unpublished prototypes.

Published Games

  • Games that are already published and available for sale qualify for a free evaluation
  • Games that pass the evaluation are considered for our Recommended Games list and review in either Casual Game Insider or on our blog
  • We cannot guarantee that a review will be published — we typically only publish reviews for the games that have passed our evaluation with high ratings
  • Published games are evaluated against the criteria contained on our submission form, which are subject to change at any time and without notice
  • Please send 2 sample copies — one is used for the evaluation and the other is used at our sole discretion (usually for giveaways or other promotions)

Kickstarter Previews

  • Previews of unpublished prototypes (usually for Kickstarter campaigns) have a price of $200 per game (see our media kit)
  • The price includes a FREE banner ad and sidebar ad during your campaign ($125 value), sharing with our 8,000+ social media followers, and the use of our "Featured on Casual Game Revolution" logo
  • We will publish a written review of your game on our blog according to your desired schedule (usually when your campaign begins)
  • We must receive the game at least two weeks before your campaign begins
  • As always, we will be honest and forthright in our evaluation — we cannot guarantee a positive review
  • Unpublished prototypes or print-on-demand games are ineligible for review in Casual Game Insider and our Recommended Games list

Please contact us to confirm eligibility and obtain the mailing address of the reviewer assigned to your games. If possible, please include a completed game submission form with your shipment. All games sent for evaluation become the property of Casual Game Revolution and will not be returned.
