Jungle Shoot Out is an interactive platform shooter game based on King Features Syndicate’s The Phantom ©. The game was originally designed using inverse kinematics in Flash. This version has been ported from the orignal flash version using HTML5. While the game was designed for desktop computers this version will work on tablets and phones. As such the game now includes touch friendly controls (though the keyboard controls still work).

Shoot the gun out of the roughnecks hand while dodging bullets.

Adobe are sponsoring a set of javascript libraries and tools called CreateJS. CreateJS includes a javascript library called Easel JS which allows developers to manipulate the HTML5 canvas element using familiar concepts and coding techniques found in Actionscript 3. For example nested display lists and frame based events. Lee Brimelow has a great tutorial on EaselJS here. CreateJS also includes libraries for tweening, preloading assets and playing sounds as well a tool called Zoe which converts swf movieclips into spritesheets ready for use in Easel JS.

The interactive application below was created using Easel JS and Zoe. The animations were extracted from an original flash swf using Zoe and reassembeled in Easel JS. The fantastic Illustrations were drawn by Lindsay Walker.

Tested on ios (ipad & iphone), android as well as the latest versions of internet explorer, firefox, chrome and safari.
