Moon Lander

Category: Prototype, Showcase

Ben Nolan (Behaviour.js) has whipped up some Ajax Fu to create a simple Moon Lander using Prototype and the Canvas tag.

Take a peak at the game code to see how elegantly Ben did this.

Who said JavaScript is hard?

Yikes.

You should warn us MSIE users not to visit sites like this.

Who said cross-browser javascript was hard???

Trust me, this is hard. Compliments to Ben for this high quality code.

Comment by Marko — January 25, 2007

That is way cool. Clever bit of code.

I don’t get what part is Ajax but okay.

causes mass errors in my IE 7. 8(. I know there is a cross browser implimentation of Canvas. What a shame to use a Cross Browser framework like Prototype and not go all the way. 8(

Don’t get me wrong I gave it a 5 stars. I dig it in Firefox.

Lovely, but it should be called JS Fu, not Ajax Fu. Oh I forgot, that’s what we call JavaScript these days. ;-)

Nice, but the page has plenty of Javascript errors. I just wonder if people (developers, and maybe end users too) cares about those Javascript errors. I see them all the time, but not on this Ajaxian site :-) Keep it up.

Don’t use with, its sucks for performance.

Anyone remember the C64 game “space taxi”? Passengers would wave at you from different platforms and you had to deliver them to whichever platform they requested. The faster the dropoff the more of a tip you got, crashes cost you lives. Now we’re talking!!

This has no use, has it?
Very short Fun. And when I’m flying to the left, there waits a nice error for me.

So now that AJAX is the cool buzzword, every web site with a neat Javascript animation is AJAX? AJAX is about asynchronous data exchange using javascript. This is DHTML. AJAX is now the most overused term in computer science.

I’m very curious as to how Ajaxian.com, supposedly the experts at Ajax, showcase and label something that clearly has NOTHING to do with Ajax. Not even that, but this is old stuff (relatively) and the game isn’t too impressive. Are you kidding me?

this is stuff. Do not understand the use of it
