Z-War is a completely JavaScript based game which loads certain components (such as the player and enemies) as canvas elements on to the playing area. The basic premise is simple: stay alive and kill zombies; but the game makes it fairly difficult to kill the pesky undead with the sword option being tough to use as it means you have to get very close to them. Z-War was created by Darkimmortal.

Running from the zombies seems to be more effective than shooting

There’s also a nice canvas rendering effect if you click the link at the top of the title screen in Firefox.

Play Z-War!

Yay, Z-War got mentioned somewhere \o/

Btw, that canvas demo (as in demoscene) looks even better at its original home at imgkk.com (see footer). :)

The graphics were taken from somewhere else, at least the house etec.
Hence you’ll notice the zombies are a totally different (ugly) style.
