So where are the HTML5 games? I thought the “Flash-killer” had arrived?
Actually, there have been some cool HTML5 based games knocking around recently. These are mostly proof of concept games though, and nowhere near the level of Zombie Tycoon etc. Come back in 10 years for that.
Here are a couple of nice ones though that are worth a look…
Really like this one. The game premise is bollocks but the attention to detail and the implementation of physics in a JS game is impressive.
Another headline grabber from Adobe this week was the launch of codename ‘Wallaby‘. In a nutshell, Wallaby takes a Flash file (.fla) and converts it to a HTML5 version. It’s not quite a magic bullet yet as there are some pretty major features that aren’t supported yet but it shows some definite promise. I’ll hopefully do some experiments myself and report back.
