Pac-Man Clone Pie Guy: A Free Web App

Pie Guy



With your mobile browser, go to

put the game on your homescreen and enjoy! However there is no sound and it doesn't run smooth on my iPhone 3G—but maybe it works better with newer devices. Anyway interesting installation technique...

There's too much lag over my wifi to enjoy this game. But it's a cool idea

Let's ponder our existences!

Installable webapp is not new, *cough*, sorry. I recall there is a webapp letting user copy-and-paste special characters (name escapes).

As a game this is new, the idea is nice, but I don't have unlimited data nor free WiFi so...I dunno...

Did anyone claim that installable web apps are new? The game is new.

When installed once, the game will run even in airplane mode.

1. So? I say as a game, it is new! But the installation process is the same as other native web app written in HTML5.

2. It is great to hear that, after installing (not much slower than other app <10M), the game runs very well on 3GS.

Good to know. So the lag on iP3G is not because of slow internet connection—but (graphics) processor power obviously.
