HTML5 has indeed made quite a mark on the mobile world, developers are increasingly using this platform to create and develop some real mind blowing games and applications for smartphones and tablet devices. I will review 3 amazing HTML5 games that are very much compatible with an iPhone or anyother smartphone having an HTML5 compatible browser.
A tip for iPhone users, if you want to play these HTML5 games on full screen then all you have to do is hit Safari browser middle button and choose the option Add to Homescreen and you will see the entire game on a full-screen mode. Have a brief look on these games after a break!
Ever played or heard about Pocket tanks, if yes then Nano Tank is another gaming gem that you will adore. Basically it’s a 2D shooting game in which you take out your enemies while avoiding incoming fire and obstacles. You will find it a bit difficult to play in iPhone’s Safari environment, so I will suggest you to convert to full screen mode. Nano Tanks employs real-time combat skills with highly responsive controls, you have to set your angle to take a perfect shot but you can maneuver you tank as well.
Simple yet interesting, I found Lazors to be a very interesting game with some really challenging levels. There are a total of 30 levels and in each level you will find tangled lasers that are shown in red and Orange color. All you have to do is untangled the laser and once you are done the laser will change its color to green. Once you untangle all the lasers the level will be complete and you can proceed to next level having a higher difficulty level. You will require skills to complete higher levels in Lazors because gameplay will start getting difficult.
Lastly I am including Spy Chase which is basically a racing game with a touch of the past. You have to avoid cars, collect power increasing goodies and avoid obstacles while racing with your targets. You will go faster if you will collect more power-ups and eventually you can catch your rivals quickly. Shooting is by default so all you need to worry about is dashing your car around the track and reach finish line. Spy Chase can be downloaded from developer’s official website.
I tried out all of these games and simply loved them, I recommend that you should definitely give a try to these games and I can bet you will love the gameplay.
HTML5 have really revamped the markup language as it use to be, with the addition of new tags and multimedia capabilities the web development have surely taken a big step forward with the aid of HTML5.
Users in the past have always relied on flash games for browser-based entertainment but with the inclusion of powerful HTML5 in the web domain, application and games on the web are now more exciting and useful.
I have compiled a list of three impressive HTML5 games that you can play on any internet browser having a built-in support for HTML5, these browsers are FireFox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 9. So here is a brief review of these exciting and fun-filled HTML5 games:
This particular game transforms your entire browser window into a monochrome world with very smooth animations and responsive controls. Using keyboard and a mouse you have to navigate through a screen before proceeding to the next level. You have to navigate your character through mazes and puzzles experiencing all the HTML5 brilliance. VII is no doubt graphically pleasing and with a wisp of technical goodness and the best part is that you can download it for free.
Although most of the browser games take advantage of various physics engines available for both Java and Flash, but Sand Trap employs its very own built-in HTML5-based module. Each level in the game contains a maze and all of them are filled with a little bit of sand. You have to rotate the maze so that you can syphon the sand into a container place underneath the maze.
It is a very addictive and in some instance a complex game, and I think this game is primarily for physics gaming lovers. Moreover, if you happen to own a tablet then this game would become more interesting with inclusion of touch interface.
Based on the classic gaming title Line Rider, the game allow users to create custom tracks by using drawing tools and later on ride and share them. As a motorbike rider you have to reach the end of the level that is a pretty easy task. With a careful use of lean controls and throttle you can help the rider to maintain position on the bike through the entire level. Google Chrome users can install an extension in-order to access the Canvas Rider game instantly.
The HTML5 is one of the most promising upcoming standards. It has been faring very well against Flash and I am largely in favor of it. Niels Leenheer has come up with a new site that tells you approximately how well your browser renders HTML5.
