The Ultimate List of HTML5 Games

Alright guys, here comes the whole new stage in our HTML5 research. But this time it's it is going to be a lot more fun than ever before! Actually we know that HTML5 has caused a real social media boom and there is a lot of different information concerning this topic. Also there is a common thing about many web users - now they can tell you what the main features of HTML5 are. And every kid knows that there's a rivalry between HTML5 and Flash, Adobe and Google etc. etc. And if HTML5 and Flash are at war, than we should definitely examine some of the HTML5-based games (let's face it - everyone knows more than enough about Flash games).

So all this being said, in today's post we're presenting a mixture of fun and useful information because all of the HTML5 applications that you'll find here are great proofs of the great HTML5 and JavaScript performance. Thanks to the new "canvas" tag now we can play games via web browser that supports this tag. This collection shows that HTML5 can one day really become a great alternative to Flash web games and we hope that in the nearest future we will be able to see a much wider variety of HTML5 web games - because now, in June 2010 it was pretty hard to arrange the list of 20 games. And on the other hand this is what makes this list really ultimate! Alright now, enjoy those games and be sure to let us know what your favorite one is!

    Classic Bricks game is easy to code.

  2. Makara says:

    Wonderful !

  3. Christian says:

    easy to code games, i can make way better games using BASIC from MS-DOS 6.2, the only decent one is wolf3d but is slow as hell, in flash it would be faster

    • ChristianSucks says:

      Can you link us to some of the things you have developed. Oh wait, you didn’t do anything… you just rip on others… excellent.

  4. JT says:

    This is pretty cool- HTML5 is going to be awesome. I found even more examples of HTML5 games at html5games.com

  5. Martin Wehrle says:

    back to the 80th??? No Mr. Steve Jobs…. 😀
    Flash is the plattform. Not iPhone or Android or Windows 😉

  6. Web Design Firm NYC says:

    I’m liking this but I still think Flash has some hope in future versions. Ultimately I htink people will want both which will have there benefits and drawbacks.

  7. Web Resources eu says:

    HTML5 and CANVAS tag always give as some huppy ! 🙂

  8. Hermitbiker says:

    …. not bad, some games from long ago…. using only pure HTML5 and JavaScript…. no slow loading “flash”…. give it time !!

  9. Simon Francis says:

    Reminds me of the state of Flash games 10-15 years ago.

  10. J-Me says:

    cpu friendly?!? Why are we worried about minimal FLASH CPU usage?? Do we all still have IBM 386’s ?? Or are we Steve Job Zombies? Intel, AMD “AND” Qualcom all make very powerfull processors that aren’t battery thirsty, sorry Steve didn’t get the memo. Apple designed gorgeous, niche products that just fell WAY short in the electronic engineering/design department and Steve Job Zombies just don’t want to admit it. “NOT MY APPLE!” You Apple lovers should be more upset that Steve Jobs brings politics into the mix. The people that lose are the consumers unfortunately.

  11. izle says:

    The next generation wont understand why we use flash. Html5 is very usefull and cpu friendly.

  12. Jay Dymond says:

    I think you’re all missing the point. This is done using straight up HTML5 and Javascript
    NOT FLASH!!!!! It’s only a matter of time till developers are creating stuff from the modern era.

  13. Freddy says:

    my favorite is the one with the maps… the only IQ game here btw

  14. Chris says:

    ah, the guy above must be a young’en… back in the day, these were the games we had! and I agree with freelance above, wolfenstien used to get HOURS of my attention!!!

  15. Rich Davey says:

    Wake me up when you’ve found something worth actually playing 🙂

  16. Freelance Web Designer in London says:

    Wolfenstien was the best for me, i played it in 1993

  17. Lou Reed says:

    Wow, I remember the day Wolfenstien came out, seems like yesterday! Amazing.
