Sand Trap Wins SPIL Games' September HTML5 Competition!


We recently entered Sand Trap into another competition, this one hosted by SPIL Games for their new HTML5 mobile phone portals. I had to rework quite a bit of the code from our original CGDC8 entry so it would scale to different phone resolutions, accept touch input, and run at a decent speed on such a performance-restricted platform. We placed first for September, the first month of competition! SPIL Games is hosting this monthly competition through February 2011 at http://www.html5contest.com/.

Here is the SPIL Games press release, and their US mobile web portal. Be sure to check out the other two September winning entries on the web portal as well: Block Dream by Bruno Garcia and Zombie Troops by Makar Osokin.
