Ablative Air

I've been working nights and weekends on creating a game for the BlackBerry Z10, and it's finally done! It's called Ablative Air, and the objective is to destroy orbital debris before it destroys the ISS.

Completely unintentionally my game posted the same week that Gravity the movie started showing. The plot of Gravity is pretty much the theme of my game. I promise, I didn't know about Gravity before I started development. In fact, I heard about it the first day my app was up for sale. I am pretty sure that the producers of Gravity didn't know about me, either. Everybody is jumping on the orbital debris bandwagon these days.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, "to ablate" is to destroy through vapourization. Like what happens to meteors superheated by the atmosphere.

Who's got the best HTML5 score?

Take a look for yourself.  485 + 11 bonus points.

Is it Chrome? Nope. Android devices? Them neither. Safari? Hardly. Microsoft? Uh--no.

It's the browser on the BlackBerry Z10. Yep, that's right--a mobile phone with a more compatible browser than any other desktop or phone or tablet out there.

It's a continual race, so we probably won't be on the top long. But it's pretty exciting to be in such rarefied air right now, so I'll just enjoy it while I can.
