Canvas Quest: Rogue like RPG game

Category: Fun, Games

Canvas Quest

Andrew Wooldridge created CanvasQuest with the idea of creating a simple roguelike game. It has some interesting features like map loading, and uses graphics to render the text via sprites.

Its nice!
But i think that using SVG to render or even DHTML you could get a more dynamic game with moves etc, but it looks nice still :p

Canvas more closely represents game programming in a traditional environment (OpenGL, SDL, Java2D) while SVG/DHTML really is just DOM node manipulation. If the canvas and browser-side javascript was faster you would see all out RTS clones.
