I’ve been tinkering with the fabulous ImpactJS game engine lately, and having an absolute blast. The man behind it, Dominic Szablewski, is a great guy, and he’s done a terrific job with Impact. My latest creation with it is Pipewalk, a puzzle/board game where you attempt to supply green ooze to a board full of pipes by rotating them until they are all connected. Its actually a take on a common linux game called Netwalk. It uses canvas, so it’ll only work if you’re using a browser which supports it. Other than Impact, I also used jQuery/jQuery UI and the excellent Absolution jQuery UI theme by Michael Vanderheeren, as well as Uniform for styling form elements.
