What did this mean? for the first time, you could draw on the screen without using pre-created images, you could create interactive games. So I set about writing a game to see what I could do with this brand new functionality...
This was 2005, and I knew in the short future, there would be proper HTML5/Canvas game frameworks but I wanted to know how these things work in the first place.
It works best on a traditional machine with a mouse, sorry but I didn't optimise it for phones or tablets at the time, should I revisit it?
Hope you enjoy giving it a quick play as much as I enjoyed making it :)
