The web app game I’m going to introduce is a game created with HTML5 technology. It is a demonstration of how games without Flash could be made. Your goal in this game is to cause chain reaction of explosions to destroy a minimum quantity of balls. This is a game that tests your brain and luck.
In each level you can only click on the playing field for one time. This creates a zone where all balls going into this zone would explode. An exploded ball would create yet another zone that could cause the explosion of other balls. These zones disappear after a definite time. So the challenge is how to find the best location to create the first explosion zone by anticipating the movement of the balls.
The score you get for each explosion is not equal. When you cause a chain of explosions, the score for each explosion increases. However, once the chain is broken the score for each explosion returns to the basic level. Think of it as the combo-hit scores you get in fighting games like Street Fighters.

Today’s featured web app game is an awesome 3D game, ChuClone. It’s built with HTML and WebGL, not flash is required and is super fast. And the game itself? A fast paced action game. You gonna run, jump and tumble.
In each level there is a three dimensional cube which you have to control. Use the WASD keys to move it along the track. There are some special sections, such as those sharply boost the moving speed or push the cube up (bounce). You have to smartly utilize these special sections and carefully control your cube so that it moves as fast as possible until the end of the level. The aim of the game is to finish each level as fast as possible (you are not competing with anybody else).
While you use the keyboard to control the cube, don’t forget your mouse. You can change the point of view by moving the mouse. Find the best angle to have a look over the track so that you don’t miss anything!
Just as Canvas Rider, the web app game I introduced weeks ago, ChuClone also has a level editor for all registered users to express their creativity. Non-registered users can still play the game but they can’t built tracks.
This is a nice game which demonstrated how web applications could utilize 3D power. I was surprised to see the fast rendering of the three dimensional objects. And the game itself is nice to play. While there are not so many 3D Chrome web games available, this is one that you should definitely try!
Pac-man, the old arcade game, has been ported to the web using HTML5 technology. Well we know this is nothing new. Google had already released a playable Pac-man doodle and there are other Flash implementations of this game. What makes the Pac-man I introduce today different is that it’s really big and really multinational.
In memorial of Les Paul, an American Guitarist, Google released a guitar doodle on 9 June (his 96th birthday). This doodle is not only viewable, you can play it with the mouse. This funny doodle received overwhelming appreciation in the past few day and finally, Google decided to keep it forever at this address. This is not the first time a playable doodle being maintained. A Pac-man doodle released in 2010 was also kept with a permanent web address, forever.
