  2. For anyone too young to remember, back in the 1980s there was this thing called LCD games. Before Nintendo introduced the GameBoy, electronics companies including Nintendo were making small handheld toys that used LCD crystals to display flickering shapes, the shapes could only be turned on or off. Using this crude form of animation they were able to create something that kind of resembled a videogame. Companies incl. Gakken, Tandy, Radio Shack, Sunwing, Tiger, Tomy called these games "card game" or just electronic lcd game, while Nintendo called their line "Game & Watch". Over the years hundreds (maybe thousands) of different games were created, see this site: http://handheldempire.com/games.jsp Anyway, why do I bring this up here on html5gamedevs? There is this very cool site called pica-pic by Hipopotam. He's created playable versions of 26 of these games using Flash. -> http://www.pica-pic.com/ Now I was thinking, this could possibly also be done using with html/js right? Ideally there could be some sort of lcdgame.js library, and then for each separate game you'd have just one html file and a javascript to describe the gamelogic. And maybe only 2 png images, one image with and one without the shapes, and the LCD game library is then able to cut out the shapes (also described in the js file as polygons) and display it on a canvas. It could potentially be kind of like MAME but for LCD games. Any thought on this?
