The Radeon HD 7790 launch is dominating the news today, and things appear to be pretty slow otherwise. Also, it's Friday, so let's have a little fun. Google has unveiled a new browser-based game that lets you navigate TR like a 3D maze.
World Wide Maze was designed to show off the capabilities of HTML5, and it's pretty slick for something that takes only a few seconds to load in a browser window. While the graphics may not be overly impressive, the controls are responsive enough to make the game enjoyable for a round or two. You'll need a dedicated app to play on Android or iOS devices, though. I guess the mobile browsers on those platforms don't have the necessary plumbing yet.
Google bills World Wide Maze as a Chrome experiment, so there's no telling how long it'll be available before declining usage prompts its early retirement. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) Who can set the highest score on the TR front page?
