Here's the initial version of what I've been messing around with lately:

runs a little laggy on my Chrome 11 + Mac OSX

Yeah I wanted to stick with the whole robot theme but make it more of a platformer with levels and implement mouse control this time.

Interesting that its sluggish on MacOSX, I shall keep optimizing!

I'm getting about ~5fps currently. But not always. It's when the background does this - http://dznr.org/smxo

Oh wow, you using Safari? Looks like its trying to shade the background tile... Let me make it not do that.

UPDATE: FYI What was causing Safari to be so laggy was the shadowblur property for the canvas objects:

ig.system.context.shadowBlur = 10;

For some reason, this property was persisting and being performed even on the background in Safari and slowing everything down. I completely removed it and I don't think it added too much eye candy to begin with, so I'm leaving it out completely now to benefit browser horsepower. It is now playable in Safari! (for me atleast...)

Another thing I am noticing is how hideous my Ubuntu .filltext() font looks in Safari...

Thanks for the catch, Hareesun! Been awhile since I booted it up in Safari.

Nice game BFresh! Really like the graphics. I like the concept too. Seems a bit difficult to master, but I know it's a work in progress. Starting a bit more simply or having a "training level" might be helpful for the actual game. Overall impressive.

Thanks Mike! Yeah my first Zone is meant to teach the mechanics of all 'things you can do' in the game. I then want to progress the difficulty of puzzles and what you need to do to get to the end. Feel free to let me know if things are weird or if it gets too challenging too quick,etc.

Very cool, it reminded me of Portal. Great graphics, very smooth gameplay.

This is excellent! How many hours did this take you? Very polished and creative.

This is very nice.

Thanks! Hard to say how much time it took, worked on it for an hour or two here or there for about a month or two. Many of the entities and some of the artwork were brought from my other two guys and that saved a lot of time.

So far the biggest criticisms are:

1) No Sound - I'll be getting to this when I get some time!
2) Too Hard - The current 10 levels I made kind of hard I guess, I will probably make a set of 10 easier then this to put before the existing levels.

Getting back into impactjs after a 3 year break, Id like to add warp to the games category!
