Here is a fun little game I made trying to get more advanced features to work on this website.

Goal: Avoid being hit by the triangles, red circle, and the dark red pentagons the red circle shoots at you. Hit the blue squares for more points. The higher the level, the more points you get for the blue squares and over time. If you manage to survive all 10 levels (12 1/2 minutes), you get more points for having more health

Controls: You can use WASD or the arrow keys to move up/left/down/right. Space bar begins the game and also begins a new game if you die. Click on the game area before using arrow keys to avoid scrolling up/down.

Note that this game tends to be slightly laggy on Firefox for some reason. It works fine enough on Chrome, though. This game was made with the Physics JS library. I have included a limited on-screen keyboard for mobile users (still testing).
