You should be fine though, as long as you stick to the rules!
Keep it Clean, if you know what we mean. When commenting or communicating with anyone else on Swordsandsandals.com (including Customer Services) don't use any offensive, racist, sexist or abusive language (in any language).
Play for Real. Believe us, we've seen all the scripts, cheats engines, hacks and more (boring). It is sometimes possible to cheat, but please don't, you just create a lot of work for us and it doesn't really prove anything, except that you are NOT very good at games. Playing for real is much more fun!
No Spam! Or malware, or adware or links to your crazy amazing product or site. If you want to legitimately drive traffic to your site then advertise on Swordsandsandals.com, we've got some great deals and all the money goes back into developing games and the site.
Make Useful Comments. When commenting, please try to write something useful for the rest of the community.'This game sucks!' or 'This game is great!' is not terribly constructive. Let us know why you think that and how it might be improved.
