Welcome to the amazing



These are legacy versions of various mass:werk games.
For current versions see the Games Index.

These games were one of the first arcade games using only generic browser technologies (starting with Netscape 3 in late 1996) and highly regarded – p.e. the "JavaScript-Invaders" could be found at USA Today's Marketplace.
"JavaScript-PacMan" has been updated for enhanced cross-browser compatibility (2004). The keyboard handlers of some other games have been updated to conform to modern browsers.
