Game & Watch LCD Donkey Kong recreated with HTML and CSS

Link –

James Holderness recreated the Donkey Kong Game & Watch without JavaScript. Amazing work.

There are two things I’ve always wanted to try in HTML: generating a photorealistic image using CSS, and creating an interactive game without the need for JavaScript. HTML Kong is the end result of those two ambitions – a reproduction of the Game & Watch video game, Donkey Kong, using just HTML and CSS.

For those of you that haven’t heard of it, Game & Watch was a line of LCD handheld video games from the 1980s. The Donkey Kong title was probably one of the most popular in the series, selling more than a million units worldwide. The game was split over two screens and built into a distinctive clamshell casing.
