Phosphor Alpha 4
Nick Kang of Rasterwerks has put together one sweet technology demo of a fully playable Shockwave 3D first person shooter. Weighing in at just over 3MBs in size, the rather hefty death match style game is beautiful and runs great on my NVIDIA GeForce 4 graphics card. An enhancer xtra was necessary to launch the game, but the Shockwave plug-in took care of the necessary installation easily. Phosphor Alpha 4 contains Unreal Tournament and weapon models that he downloaded from polycount, bots containing sophisticated AI routines, moving elevators, multiple weapon types, armor and ammo power-ups, configurable settings, wow, there is a lot packed into this Shockwave 3D implementation that runs in a browser!
Control scheme is your standard FPS config: mouse for looking and turning, click to shoot, keyboard keys for moving and switching weapons. In this game, [W][A][S] and [D] keys move you up, left, back and right, respectively. Space jumps, [F] and [G] cycle forward and back through available weapons.
There are still some issues with framerate dropping occasionally, but that doesn't spoil the fun to be had with this game. If you're into FPS games, you have to check out this amazing and impressive one made for the Web. Very nice indeedy. Click.
Update: Although the alpha version of Phosphor is no longer available, you can play the beta version. Check it out here.
