Flashback for the web

REminiscence has been rewritten for the web: this allows to run Flashback in a web browser: https://warpdesign.github.io/flashback-web/

Unfortunately Amiga version is not supported yet, but it's a start

Full source code is available: https://github.com/warpdesign/flashback-web/

Great, thank you! I'm very much into Javascript game development myself, browsing through this will be a big help.

Cool to see that they do the same trick as me - use Typescript instead of pure Javascript. The code is -so- much easier to read and maintain that way.

EDIT: okay not really because it is C code translated to Typescript code, it works but it is not really all that useful I might pick some ideas from the audio playback and the physics and collision code.

Not sure it's so helpful to learn indeed, although I learnt a few tricks already.
Audio is simple, as is Canvas/drawImage stuff.

I suggest you check AthenaJS if you want to learn stuff about gaming: it's written in ES6 and very simple compared to Flashback
