As part of the Chrome Experiments series, I wrote a Breakout/Arkanoid-style game called Bing-Bong! entirely in Javascript (no Flash-etc). This is the second real thing I've ever done in Javascript (the first was this experimental gallery site) and I was surprised how easy it was to create "software" inside the browser without using any plugins like Flash.

Doesn't work in Chrome!

( Which I think is a beta, technically)

Haha, that's funny... I've only tested it in IE and Firefox.

I just installed the latest version to test it and it seems to work fine in that.

This is cool. Nice artwork, and the extra features you've added to the game work well. This is the first time I've seen the concept of gravity introduced in breakout, and the power too.

For me the game runs poorly in Firefox (choppy movements of both the ball and blocks) but that may be unique to me, and partly due to the ten other tabs I have open, because it runs smoothly in IE. Great work.

It seems a little choppy on Firefox. (I have no tabs open). I like the style of the game though. Very cute!

Funny, for me it runs smooth in Firefox but badly in IE.

My new game, also pure Javascript, is way more resource hoggish -- APOPHIS 2029
