In terms of gameplay, it's pretty basic for a MMO title with 2D top down graphics. Players can gather items, travel to other parts of the world, fight monsters, and gain achievements. The game can support thousands of players, according to a post on the Hacks.Mozilla.org page. The source code for BrowserQuest is open source and can be downloaded at GitHub. The WebSockets server code is also available for download.
Mozilla says that BrowserQuest can be played on Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers (no mention of Internet Explorer). It can also be played on Opera when WebSockets is enabled. It can also be played on iOS-based devices like the iPhone or iPad and the Firefox browser for Android can also run the game on Android-based smartphones and tablets.
Of course, HTLM5-based browser games are nothing new. You can check out a list of our top 10 HTLM5-based games right here on Neowin.
