Hey,

this is a remake of the ATARI 1980 Missile Command arcade cabinet.
It was made for a contest, but I started coding way too late and didn't make it before deadline.

Link to contest with complete source code and all media files ( See page 3 ):
https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/223929?page=1

Play in your web browser ( don't forget to switch to fullscreen mode! Instructions on page! Highscore working! ):

Enjoy,
PSY

Excellent! I didn't now how to fire from the center missile silo so was limited to left and right. I tried clicking middle mouse button and that only made a scroll cursor appear. Tried clicking both left & right buttons at same time and that only fired left and right missiles at same time. Anyway, was some good fun. Excellent graphics like those missile trails. Audio is superb as well.

@GarBenjamin
Thank you
Either the middle mouse button or S to fire the center missile silo ( ASD keys ).
BTW, the instructions are on the page ( maybe I should change the colour, though ^^ )

After wave 14, enemy missiles will go insane
BTW, full source and media available in first post.

Thanks. I will try the S the next time I give it a play. Pressing middle mouse button only brings up the Web browser scroll cursor in Firefox.
I could not see any instructions at all. It said "Remake of Atari's Missile Command from 1980" and that was it.

ack! not saving highscore?! i can't just leave it running forever

i dunno if you're going to continue working on this but there are a couple anomalies like any remaining targets carrying over into the score phase with related explosions occurring on next phase start (which i kinda like ).

thanks for sharing!

Great looking remake.

A very popular classic, but not one of my personal favorites.

Generous offering with code and all, and I am sure a lot of folks here will benefit greatly,

Thanks

Thank you guys, I really appreciate it

@Virtual Nomad
I discovered the anomalies too, but decided to keep it that way
I somehow like it, too

I thought the shared variables were only for Android and iOS builds, not HTML5.

I must need to update again, because my offline docs say Android and iOS only. but when I goto the online docs, it includes HTML5 builds!

This is good to know, because it is definitely "a game changer" for a couple of my projects.

you must've missed this thread which found its way into this update, resulting in this post & the example in the help files.

Oh, I saw the example, once I looked at the online docs.

It was the other things I missed, as I am still running the 2019.07.31 build and I need the November, not July.

No wonder my recent tests failed... I'll update again, and try it again later. (this will be very helpful for the multiplayer HTML5 project)

Goody goody goody.
