DHTML Arkanoid

Play this easy and fund game of Araknoid on your iPhone or iPod touch. It is a remake of the classic “Araknoid” in object-oriented JavaScript and DHTML. An app originally designed for browsers in 2002, modified at one of Apple’s dev talk events to work on the iPhone Safair browser. Try with TestiPhone

  1. Nice game, but won’t work on the iPhone. The problem is when you try to move the blocker, the page moves instead of the blocker, so you can’t really play the game. If you can figure out a way to keep the page still and move the blocker the game would work perfectly on the iPhone.

  2. Howdy,

    Sorry I didn’t explain this outright; the game is playable on the iPhone/iPod touch, but works based on tap (click) events.

    Since the phone/touch don’t support mousedown/mousemove (yet?), just tap your finger where you want the paddle to “jump” to, and it will move there.

    The game sometimes will run a little slowly on a rotate or resize, so try pinch-resizing a few times if the game seems sluggish and that should restore the speed.

    This was originally developed to work in browsers, so it’s also fully-playable there.

  3. Thanks Scott, I will give it a shot.

    Also if you look at the game in the iPhone it is zoomed out too far. Have you tried playing with meta viewport tags to set the zoom levels?
