I can't seem to get past "connecting to server". Checked with a friend in a different country, and she also gets the same error. It may just be down right now. I'll try again later :).

It's a cool demo and was fun, but it's very short!

Yep, pretty short -- less than an hour for all twenty achievements, but this was good fun in an 8-bit sort of way!

@01lifeleft
Thanks for the heads-up!

Having the source code available on GitHub is a real bonus for those of us interested in multiplayer HTML5!Velojet2012-03-28 19:17:13

It just hit me that I didn't have sound or music (yes, the button was pushed down). Did any of you hear sound in Firefox 11?

Yeah, the demo's short but very promising. @Mivo, i was using Chrome and i couldn't hear the sound either, then i tried it using Firefox 11, same result. I guess the sound is temporarily not available for this game huh!?

Maybe they turned the sound off to avoid massive lagging. So far I've been able to get on, but there's never more than 70 people online at a time.

So far I've tested this in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on Windows and Firefox on Android. It sound like HTML5 runs everywhere.

Well, almost. It doesn't run on IE9 because Web Sockets wasn't implemented. I'm going to check IE10 in a few minutes. It works in Opera, but you have to turn on Web Sockets.

Definitely cool stuff.
