This site started as an HTML rapid-prototyping tool back in the early 2000's.
Here's a hella old eval3
. These gem-coveting dungeon dwellers were going to be the enemies in Fracas II.
Here's another little vorp level:
surf's up and zombies to go
It's already pretty hard. But to make it insane-o challenging, try it without your tractor beam - use yourself as bait to draw the zombies into the grip-switches.
Now the Vorp editor is integrated into the game, and there's sharing by URL.
has three new levels, with zombies and turrets!
Now eval3 is using a new URL compressor,
that is always on.
All old URLs should still work. But the new ones should survive linkification better,
because they only use URL-friendly base64 characters. So they're more likely to work if you paste them into Gmail,
or forum markdown.
Here's a sample URL that animates wiggly tree tentacles on a canvas:
The new compressor turns the form fields into a JSON string,
percent-encodes all but the most vanilla characters,
does static-dictionary substitution to make some common strings shorter (like "document" and "function"),
then uses Lempel-Ziv to compress repeated strings,
and finally encodes everything in linkifier-friendly base64.
Aaaand in Vorp, it should be easier to make small movements with the little pink square that is you -
better for lining up throws, or getting onto a beam sensor.
I've been working on Vorp
Now there are ten lesson levels, and a couple new challenging levels.
Added a new game, Vorp
, to the nav bar.
Refactored the whole site!
For example, now you can go to plexode.com/eval3
instead of plexode.com/cgi-bin/eval3.py
All old-style URLs should get redirected to the new URLs. eval2 and eval3 URL hash fragments are preserved, even on IE.
I also got rid of some cruft, and added some stuff.
Insta-html and eval have a beautiful baby and it is eval3
It is full of wonders. Here is a snake I made with it:
saves and loads content using the href
fragment, so you can save a JS program as a bookmark, or send one to a friend.
