AirConsole allows for local multi-player in web games. On a big screen you connect your browser to the AirConsole site and then multiple players can connect their phones or tablets and use them as controllers.
I love local multiplayer games and AirConsole makes it really easy to get a party game going as everyone generally has a phone in their pocket to use as a controller. There’s more info on the AirConsole site:
The first playable build of Spacebomb is now online.

I have written a maze game using HTML5. It should be compatible with any recent browser including mobile browsers!
Move using the arrow keys, WASD or by pressing the buttons on screen.
The interface will react if the browser window’s dimensions change (e.g. if you rotate your phone from portrait to landscape). The interface will try and draw the maze as large as possible while ensuring that it remains a square and there is some space on screen for the interface.

I have created a simple tool to measure and train your reaction speed.
It was written using HTML5 and so should work on all modern browsers including mobile devices.

It’s quite a simple little program. I made it to practice making games using HTML5. Hopefully I’ll have a more interesting game that used HTML 5 soon.
