Finally, you can play Letteretti for free in your browser.
I was shocked to discover, when I finished this port, that Letteretti was originally written almost five years ago in 2011. It’s come a long way since then. Most amusing is the massive graphical upgrade thanks to Paul:
This wasn’t our first collaboration, but its the first one that actually got finished.
Part of the addition of Paul’s graphics was reworking the whole thing to be HTML/CSS-based to enable easy porting to iPhone, etc. That made this latest port a breeze, mainly a refresher in node.js/Express.
The best part about the browser version is playing with a real keyboard. Since the beginning it has been keyboard-enabled. My original development was using an old Motorola Droid with a slide out keyboard:
(Side note, I forgot how much I enjoyed having the keyboard option on a smartphone). I’m not sure anyone has ever actually used the keyboard feature except me.
I’m hoping to add a few more features in the coming weeks, but its up and playable!
