PurpleFloyd's HTML 5 Canvas Platform Game Running On An iPod Touch With Touch Controls
Purple Floyd just contacted us to tell us that he has created an iPod Touch/iPhone compatible version of his platform game. You can see it running in the video above.
What does this mean? Well, it means that very soon developers can make games that are formatted to the iPod Touch/iPhone screen that run in Safari. They can monetize them with advertising instead of selling them in the app store. They can use them as running demos of games that run in the app store. They could simply make a game that gets people to their web site.
It also means that any argument that Apple does not allowing Flash apps on the iPhone or iPad because they bypass the app store does not hold water. You can make them RIGHT NOW, with touch controls, and people can play them immediately.
