HTML 5 Game: Pirates Love Daisies

HTML 5 Game: Pirates Love Daisies

 HTML5 can do some pretty amazing things, to see for yourself check out Pirateslovedaises.com 

The idea for the game is original, but simple: you and your pirates are fighting to defend your precious daisies from being snatched by evil sea creatures. What I like about the site is the modular way in which Grant animated the game’s many elements, including the characters, scenery and the environment in general. If you inspect the code of one of the pages using the Internet Explorer 9 Developer Tools (F12), you will find that the HTML markup is relatively short. Most of the action happens inside the < canvas > tag, where all the graphic objects are drawn and animated using the new EaselJS framework.
