Super Mario resurrected in HTML5

Written by James Delahunty (Google+) @ 10 Oct 2013 22:48 User comments (9)

Super Mario resurrected in HTML5 One of the world's most addictive and iconic games has been born yet again, and this time its in pure HTML5.
Full Screen Mario is an open-source effort started by Josh Goldberg. It recreates Super Mario using just HTML5, letting you play the game in your browser.

In addition to the Super Mario we all know and love (admit it!), you can also play randomly generated levels which can result in some surprising and very difficult situations. If you are the creative type, you can build your own level, or you can just stick to recreated Super Mario levels.

Either way it is pretty cool to see.

It works with Chrome...at least it did for me. Got a hand cramp using the WASD keys though. Guess I've been slacking. lol

from memory v12 opera is the old type & does not contain chrome,you'd need 13 or up,you may be able to get a portable version

The only way this could be more awesome is if he implemented some sort of controller support.

I'm tempted to create a controller profile however, just for this because it's a lot of fun :)
