Details

Monkey Spin is a vertical side-scroller where the objective is to keep Bananas from falling off the vines for as long as possible. It was a collaborative project between myself (programming), Gabe Rozenberg (design), Mohsen Hadianfard (project management), Ilyes Fourar (art), and Josh Levitt (music).

The version as shown here is more of a prototype demonstrating the potential of the canvas element. Originally, we wanted to support mobile HTML5-capable devices (primarily the iPhone and iPod Touch); however, limitations at the time (e.g. CPU/browser bottlenecks) prevented this from happening.
