Escape the Mainframe Game

http://escape.fantomfactory.org/

A little online game I've thrown together. It runs as pure Javascript but I admit I actually wrote it in Fantom - http://fantom-lang.org/

It's all coded by hand, with vectors calculated using standard 3D matrix rotations which are applied to the screen using basic 2D drawLine(x, y) commands. Therefore, for better or worse, it uses no graphics or game libraries, just plain Javascript (well, Fantom!) rendered on a HTML5 Canvas.

For background info on the game see:

http://www.alienfactory.co.uk/articles/escape-the-mainframe

Have fun!

Steve.

Escape the Mainframe!

Fanny the Fantom has been captured by the evil Mainframe. Help Fanny escape dodgy programming and promote Fantom by avoiding obstacles and collecting bonus cubes.

Fanny must jump and duck through 10 frantic levels in this tense retro 3D vector game.

Can you escape the Mainframe!?

http://escape.fantomfactory.org/

Use cursor keys to jump and squish. Hold UP to jump higher.

Escape the Mainframe is a simple jump and duck game to test your reflexes, rendered in stunning retro 3D vector graphics. Written entirely in the Fantom programming language, Escape the Mainframe runs on both the desktop and in a browser!

See Eggbox Pod Repository for more details:

Have fun!

Ask Fanny!

A mini search engine for the Fantom reference documentation

The Fantom documentation is pretty good, but it's sometimes hard to find what you're looking for. So "Ask Fanny" indexes and ranks all the headings and titles of the core Fantom documentation and libraries and makes them available as:

- a Website
- a Command Line Program
- a programmable API

Visit http://askfanny.fantomfactory.org/about for a demonstration!
