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.
By now most regular readers of this blog should know I like playing puzzle games. That’s why many of my weekly recommended web app games are mind-challenging puzzle solvers. This week’s featured web game is yet another word puzzle game.
No, this is not that kind of find-the-words game I introduced before. Playing this game, Qbox, gives me not only pleasure but also knowledge. I could learn famous quotes of people.
QBox – Move Tiles to Find Out Quotes
In this game, quotes are grouped by time, Old Times, Middle Ages and Modern Time. I do not have knowledge about old things so I chose modern time.
Each letter of the quote is a separate tile which is movable. You move a tile by swapping it with another one vertically above or below it. In other words, you cannot move tiles horizontally or diagonally. If you found all correct alphabets of a word, the color of the whole word would be changed. Your goal is to reveal the word in the shortest time.

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!
Today’s featured web app game is dead simple and truly popular. It is the word search puzzle kind of game that we should all be familiar with. I like this Chrome web app game because the board is large enough to make the game a bit more challenging.
In each level there are 20 words to find out. They are listed out in alphabetical order on the right. Once you found one it disappears.
There are two difficulty settings: Beginner and Advanced. In the former type words are only arranged in either horizontal or vertical direction. Advanced levels have words in all eight ways.
Unlike many similar games that have small boards and yet contain many words (which in other words means you can easily discover the words), the game board here is quite big. But don’t worry if you cannot find out the words, there is a Find Words button on the bottom right where you can select a word and click to reval its location on the board.
This is not a game with fantastic graphics and sound effects, but it’s good for a casual round in Sunday afternoon. If you like playing puzzle games, this is one you should try. It has over 185,000 users!
