I was a huge fan of Maemo ever since N810. I have developed a Telepresence Robot with N810 and a Bluetooth Watch for N900.

I have developed an entertaining and fun 2d game that uses enhanced HTML5 technologies to create an intuitive game experience for players.

The game is called LunarCannon. As the name suggests you shoot cannonballs to space to protect our planet against martian spaceship cruising towards earth but the fun part about game is that you have to consider gravitational forces of other planets in our case the Moon which also known as Lunar.

I was disappointed when Nokia left Meego project and sad for the future of open-source on mobile platforms. It could have been a great improvement on how software technologies progress and could speed up app. development but failed sadly due to bad marketing. Now with the emerging of Tizen OS, i begin to hope again for a better developer eco-system. I believe using HTML5 for app. development will make Tizen the best choice for developers.Because once you developed for Tizen it will be available on all major platforms.

So today with the emerging of Tizen OS , i decided to port LunarCannon to Tizen to reach out more players to share this fun game.

Porting is finished and recorded with a video to share with developers to show how easy it is to port an HTML5 app. or game to Tizen OS.

Click following link to test the game on desktop:
