Mozilla release HTML5 game ~ BrowserQuest

Mar 28th, 2012No Comments

Mozilla have released an HTML5 online game called BrowserQuest, presumably as a showcase for HTML5 which they heavily support.

Graphics are powered by HTML5 Canvas, browser-to-server communications are handled by WebSockets, and audio is handled by HTML5 audio API’s.

Whilst there’s nothing much to grab the hardcore gaming enthusiast, it does show what’s possible, and that HTML5 should be capable of matching Flash for simple online gaming.

The game itself is standard “quest” fare .. moving around a virtual world, collecting items, fighting opponents, completing tasks, etc.

You can play the game by clicking the following link in any HTML5 capable web browser:-

They have also made the source code available on GitHub:-
