Prank is a multiplayer (local and maybe online) 2D action shooter game that reminds classics like liero and worms. Come and play!


 The main difference is that you can play it anywhere directly from your browser (cellphones included*). 

The game started as a university project, evolved into a way to study JavaScript canvas api and now the plan is to turn the project into a fully developed multiplayer HTML5 game built from the ground up. I know there are great html5 engines out there, such as phaser, but building the engine / game from the ground up was a great way to test and improve my programming skills in different areas.

I am still not sure if I will try to sell this game, run ads on its page or add some kind of micro transaction to it (selling in game skins if it goes online multiplayer). 

The current plan is to:

  • improve the rendering engine (doing)
  • improve the physics engine (might use some existing one)
  • play test it until it gets as fun as it possibly can
  • add online multiplayer option
  • use the game as portfolio / monetize it


* The game still needs a lot of optimization, and some features are under construction
