Right mouse button seems to be bring up the context menu in FF2 on Linux. Other than that, quite awesome!

Nice. It’s actually a remake of my favourite game on Amiga platform, the Virus. This only runs on much smoother framerate. Very nice.

It’s called Lander due to the fact that it is a very nice reproduction of the original Acorn Archimedes (later RISC PC) demo/game – that later became Virus on other platforms (Atari, Amiga, PC).

Quite a good choice for the demo of Ajax3D – as, if I remember correctly, the demo on the Arc was writen in BASIC :-)

BTW, I have a feeling (memory levels are a bit low :) ) that the Lander demo was originally written by David Braben – the author of the original Elite game (BBC Micro).

It’s great to see that computers have speeded up to the level where we can write stuff that was ‘difficult’ way back in the early 80’s in our browser scripting languages now :) :) :)

Cool stuff… however, I’m not sure why it has ‘ajax’ in the name… does it have anything to do with XHR?
