HTML5 Canvas "1945" Game Demo
Here is one of the game demos we showed at Devcon5 last week. This is an action game named 1945. It uses graphics from Ari Feldman’s Spritelib and music from Musopen.com. You cannot die in this game. It’s a demo of parallax scrolling and particle effects. Move and shoot with the mouse.
This game has only been tested with Google Chrome. Other browsers will probably require a little tweaking to get to work correctly.
This game is really not practical for HTML5 because it uses mouse button clicks like old style Flash web games. Those controls would not work well on mobile.
discussion: How would you change this game to make it work on mobile platforms? Do you even think this type of game is viable?
Don’t forget, you can join our new HTML5 Game Development forums and talk about this kind of stuff all day long!
