Every other week it seems that some bright spark is pushing the boundaries of technology and copyright legislation by recreating old games in the browser.
The next game comes straight from bullet hell and is called Project Blaze Zero. Another in-browser game, this one struck me as really smooth and nigh on impossible until you find the sweetspot. It’s just one level, but it is gorgeous.
If you want to have the mobile game experience in your browser, then there is always Angry Birds and Cut the Rope.
Doom, Quake and Castle Wolf! Oh my!
Going old school and returning to the world of desktop gaming, id software announced this week that all of its open-source releases are available now on github.
All this software was available previously, but being on github does make it far more convenient than before. Someone has even posted instructions on getting Quake 3 onto a BlackBerry PlayBook. I’d be interested to see if this is even playable, and how any controls would work. Anyone want to volunteer?
