Another game

For all of you bored with hitting penguins, here is another little game (HTML + Javascript).  Quite simple and addictive.  My record is about 26 seconds.  I recommend IE to run it, Mozilla seems to experience a few glitches with this code.

Damn you Cedric! Stop stealing my productivity! :))

True....these posts are deadly. I had no choice but to keep playing until I beat your score. 26.639.

Here's more penguin fun. Penguins plus physics even...

just stay in safe corners
28.59 ...

63 seconds.

It would be much harder to stay alive if the game creator added a random move at the beginning. With the current version, after going south just when the game begins, you can go in the top-left corner and stay there 13 seconds without any trouble.

Hint: Use a slower computer. I had no difficulties moving the box for several minutes until I got bored.

My computer is too fast, and I only have a stick mouse on my laptop. I can only get 18 seconds.

In the spirit of your little games here is another one:

Ok, for a random start to the game. Add this to the JavaScript, And change the movenemies() method as below....

var directions = new Array(8);
for (i = 0;i <8;i++)
directions[i] = getRandom(-20,20);

function getRandom(min,max)
return (Math.round(Math.random()*(max-min)))+min;

function movenemies()

Looks like the "Back to my weblog" link broke it. :/ The borders are shifted down, but the code uses the old (higher) values.

I'm using Mozilla Firebird, but it worked beautifully before the link was added, so I'm guessing it should be an easy fix.

Thanks Cedric! Moving the link to the bottom worked beautifully.

Spotted the game at the top of the page - try this if you liked it...

its not at all representative
i imagine playing it on a supercomputer
"your time: 0,03 sec"

The game with the red and blue blocks is great, but we've noticed the timer is different on every machine! On one machine I get 25 seconds dying at the same place everytime, but I get 30 seconds on another computer.

Does anyone here know enough JavaScript to make it use a more reliable timer?

BTW, if anyone's looking for another time-waster, check out my 3D minesweeper game (not crap like all the other 3D versions I've seen!).

quite poor that game

Posted by: tom at February 18, 2004 03:51 AM

Posted by: Travis at February 18, 2004 09:30 AM

my record is 39,7 whats the highest?

Posted by: dežo at May 11, 2005 11:45 AM

i did on dsl 1024 and platform p4 3,0ghz

it was 39,7

Posted by: dežo at May 11, 2005 11:47 AM

i got 30.678

Posted by: WHO at December 14, 2005 12:55 PM

I've gotten 27.6 and it gets crazy starting at 26. The timer isn't reliable. There should be a more reliable method to score this thing, such as the number of pixels traversed by one of the blocks. Unfortunately, the speed still varies wildy by machine. A flash version of this would probably be more consistent...

I guess most of you dont believe. My record is 0.04seconds. I havent read comments, but I am trying to make it 0.01second.

Posted by: kiran at April 11, 2006 01:04 PM

I wont believe this. Maybe the JavaScript didnt gave me the correct time. I got '0' second.

We’ve done some similar work with our free collaborative mosaic game :


We will appreciate your feedback.

With best regards,

Simple but amazing game. Yeah, i have to agree it's quite addictive, it's funny to see how we don't need huge games with 3d graphics to have fun. I think the key is originality, kind of remind my how the copter game was cool when it was the first of it's kind ;)

Posted by: Rpg games at June 28, 2008 04:13 PM

13 secs :(

Posted by: game design at May 21, 2009 07:22 AM
