8-bit Color Cycling in real-time rendered in HTML5 canvas


Geek post alert!!!

There are so many things I want to learn and try, like this one, an implementation of a full 8-bit color cycling engine rendered into an  HTML5 canvas in real-time. It’s uber cool that I want to remake that  first page level, or the waterfall level of that Nintendo Contra game. There’s just no time!!

The screencap doesn’t do the demo justice. Click link  to see the awesome work by Mark J. Ferrari,

The color cycling engine works in the following browsers / platforms:

Safari 4+ Mac/PC Works
Chrome 5+ Mac/PC Works
Firefox 3.5+ Mac/PC Works
Opera 10.6+ Mac/PC Works
iPhone with iOS 4+ Works
iPad with iOS 3.2+ Works
Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8 Does not work, unless of course you have Google Chrome Frame, hehe.
Internet Explorer 9 Should work natively once it is released.
