So here it is, HTML5 Canvas Pong.
Pong is effectively a Hello, World! application for game developers. It’s not particularly fun, and my version is full of amusing bugs. It’s currently single-player only, and mouse-driven. There’s also no scoring or any game over: the ball just keeps travelling off-screen.
By the time you read this, however, all of these bugs could be fixed, and it could have amazing features you never thought possible in a computer game, let alone in a browser. But I doubt it. You can follow its progress over on Github.
I was inspired by Chris Lowis’ version.
