Arcade.js Powered by You

Arcade.js is a 2d game engine based on JavaScript and HTML5 Canvas.
Written 2010 by Martin Wendt, Licensed MIT.

ArcadeJS is a 2d game engine, written in pure JavaScript. It requires HTML5, namely support for <canvas> and <audio> elements. This package was developed during a summer hollyday 2010 and finished during winter 2010. The goal of this fun project was to learn about HTML5 and implement a clone of the Rip-Off game. As a consequence I borrowed a lot (especially from processing.js), reinvented some wheels, and stuck with rather simple vector graphics for the demo games.

Note: this project is not actively maintained.

The repository was migrated from Google Code 2015-03-15, because Google Code Project Hosting was turned down.

The project consists of

  • lina.js
    An independent, object oriented library for points, vectors, and homogeneous transformations in 2D space. A polygon class helps with collision detection and hit testing.

  • arcade.js
    A 2D game engine that provides a render loop and support for multiple moving objects.
    Also sound, keyboard, mouse and touch events are supported.

  • arcade-controls.js
    Some controls (button, joystick) for mouse and touch screens.

  • Playable demos

Demos

Rip-Off

A port of the Rip-Off arcade game written by Tim Skelly / Cinematronix in 1980. Rip-Off, was the first arcade game with two-player cooperative play. The bandits use some early 'artifical intelligence' / flocking behavior.

Rip-Off demo

Asteroids

A remake of the famous arcade game (~420 lines of code).

Billiards

A simple JavaScript implementation of carambolage using arcade.js.

Quirks

A simple render loop with two reflecting points.
