Playing around with gameQuery [08/2013 Update]

Update 08/2013: I updated this very old post because it still gets traffic. The links to the legacy game works now again. For a current gameQuery example read the new post: Still playing around with gameQuery.

gameQuery, a new jQuery plugin, provides functions for creating browser games. In this early stage gameQuery supports a main-loop, game area (playground), sprites with CSS animations and sounds (not tried yet).

I have played around with gameQuery and here is the result. A simple Pong clone that should work in IE6/7, Chrome and Firefox.

The current gameQuery version is 0.2.5 and so there are some points for improvement. Every sprite needs an animation and every animation needs an image even if you don’t need it. Playground is always position:absolute and it has a black border. Only little things that you can override.
