Do you like your gaming old school with a dash of open web standards thrown in? The original Command & Conquer has been turned into an HTML5 game, playable in the browser. It's buggy and a bit awkward, but it'll still put smiles on retro gaming fans' faces.

EA already offers a Play4Free version of C&C, but you'll surely prefer to support the homebrew programming community by giving this one a try. It's built using HTML5 and JavaScript and is currently at version 0.3. Developer Aditya Ravi Shankar took three and a half weeks to put the first build together, meticulously studying how the real game looks and plays and recreating it in his web-friendly version. You can try it out on the first source link below or learn more about how it was put together at the second.
