Open Source: Orbium Game (HTML5 Based – Available on iPhone/iPad)

Received word about an interesting puzzle game  that has been open sourced.  It is currently available in the app store and runs on the iPhone/iPad (along with Android, and Palm versions).

What makes Orbium interesting is that this is actually an HTML5 based game, and the app store version runs through the Phonegap framework — and it runs well.  The game runs smoothly while animated and beautiful which really shows that the iOS devices and Mobile Safari have come a long way in running html5 apps.  There are quite a few games listed on the open source iOS apps list, but this is the first HTML5 based game.

Here’s a video of the game in action:

Because the game is HTML5 based you can test it in your browser here:

You can find the Github for the game here:

The homepage where you can find links to the different versions available is here:

Overall, it is interesting if you want some insight into HTML5 game development.
