Works in Chrome, but that was expected. (Beta version mind you)

Really cool, I'm especially impressed it doesn't crash or mess up when you resize or close any of the windows; it responds as expected. Yes, it's cheating.

Slow news day, huh? (1)

Javascript games are nothing new. Every game ever made in Flash uses the Javascript language.

I've even made a full clone of the original Atari 2600 game, "Adventure" in flash [dwedit.org] !

But not every Javascript game makes use of multiple interactive browser windows instead of flash.

Did you even play the game? Of course flash games exist... Do we need a new acronym, PTFG instead of RTFA?

The point isn't even that it's a "retro" game recreated in a browser. It's just that it uses browser windows as the paddles, which is kind of cool and fun. You can even resize the height of the windows and it'll give you, in effect, a bigger paddle.

...What?! Every game made in Flash uses the ActionScript [wikipedia.org] language, which is, as the Wikipedia page states, based on ECMAScript, but has a few key differences, one of the big ones being that it's object-oriented (whereas modern JavaScript just pretends to be).

Works fine in Chrome/Linux... (1)

...the only exception being the "player 2 wins" pop-up window was blocked.
