It’s 2015 and I wanted to follow up to an older post on HTML5 games with a new listing of some amazing, simple, and addictive games written in JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. I have been a fan of 10K Apart and the contest has a lot of great games that have been developed in very little code. This often includes all kinds of compression, minification, and even using JavaScript code inside of images to reduce the total size of the project. Its amazing how much you can create in just 10k of code. Here are my favorite 35 HTML5 games from this contest:


HTML5 Blackjack game like the popular casino game.

Air Strike

This is game is very addictive. You are an air traffic controller and need to land three different types of aircrafts securely while many more are on their way to the airport. This game has code hidden inside of an image but I have uncompressed it over here if you want to see how the game was built.

7 Spades

Another HTML5 Card Game for 4 people where you can play with computers.
