The ‘Flash Killer’ HTML has some impressive demos. I see a long future for both technologies. More on my 2-cents later. For now checkout some cool demos.
You need a HTML5-supporting browser. Most of the worlds browsers do NOT support this. The new FireFox 4+, Opera, and I.E. will work well. Test your browser here. http://html5test.com/
While I’m far too young to remember 8-bit gaming in the 1980s, Biolab is a homage to those simpler but addictive titles from 20-30 years ago. The game is a space-themed platformer with colorful chunky sprites, great animation and sound effects. The developer, Dominic Szablewski, has also released the canvas-based library at ImpactJS.com.
Biolab is a fine game. In fact, it’s better than many released in the 80s so I’ve heard.
Crystal Galaxy is a sideways scrolling space shooter reminiscent of R-Type. However, the game’s unique in that the mouse controls the direction of the ship as well as its location.
Unusually, Crystal Galaxy doesn’t use the HTML5 canvas element. Every sprite is an individual HTML
div moved around the screen. It works quickly in all browsers and is even playable in IE6! The authors at EffectGames.com also provide free tools and libraries to help you write your own titles.
Crystal Galaxy is fun, and you won’t be able to resist another go.
As you might expect, Canvas Rider is a version of Line Rider implemented using the HTML5 canvas element. The game is simple: you ride a bicycle over a series of obstacles to reach a goal – but the realistic gravity and physics make it a serious challenge.
Agent 008 Ball is a glorious-looking game of pool for one player. The objective is to pot as many balls as possible before the timer runs out.
Again, Agent 008 Ball uses the HTML5 canvas element, but it’s the photo-realistic graphics and real-world physics make the game stand out.
