Quickly after jCharacterfall, I came up with this game. It looks a bit like jCharacterfall, but is mainly inspired on and JamLegend, RockBand and (obviously) Guitar Hero. But, instead of tapping to beats, you'll have to press the correct character on the correct time in a totally random order. Each correct press will make the game faster, which makes it harder but you'll be able to earn more points.
Just like in the previous game, this one can be pretty fun and addictive, but it might help you improve your typing skills too.
NEWORBTIME). This will increase the amount of multiple dropping orbs and will also speed up, but that also means your browser will take a lot away from your CPU.
Once again this is just a simple Proof of Concept showing the amazing power of jQuery (combined with some CSS3).
Just like with jCharacterfall, I'm inviting you to poke around in the source to see where you can make some improvements. What highscore can you get in this game?

After my first jQuery plugin, I wanted to create an actual jQuery game. While I was swimming in a pool nearby, I came up with the following idea (inspiration can be found everywhere): Characters in water drops falling. You can save them from a splashy death, by pressing the correct character on your keyboard.
Keeping that in mind, I created jCharacterfall - A small, addictive jQuery game. After each character save, the game gets harder and the droplets will fall faster. When playing this game over and over, you might even improve your typing skills.
I'm aware of a couple of bugs in the game, but if you "just play it", you probably don't encounter any of them. This game combines the power of jQuery, jQuery UI, the jQuery Easing plugin and CSS3.
Feel free to poke around in the source, just to see if you could improve the script in any way! What highscore can you get?

If you're a regular visitor of Marcofolio, you know I love to create (and share) some wicked Proof of Concepts (For example: the Polaroid photo viewer and the iPhone Contacts App). They are nothing more than showing some amazing potential of certain techniques.
Today, I wanted to transfer the amazing slick Skype (for Mac) layout to your own webbrowser. Not the full layout: Only the menu where all your friends are listed. For the nifty layout we're going to use CSS3 and for the extra functionality (ofcourse) jQuery.
- Expanding and hiding the contact details.
- Nifty layout using CSS3.
- Extra info (behind each name that is not expanded) is added through jQuery.
Sadly, just like all other CSS3 examples placed here, not all browsers support this functionality. Only browsers that support the
-webkit prefix (Safari and Chrome) and the latest version of Firefox (3.5 through the
-moz prefix) are fully working. Other browsers will show the menu without the extra markup.
OK, here we go! Let's see how you can create one of these wicked Skype menu's yourself. The users listed in the demo are the friends of Marcofolio (same that are placed in the footer) with their Twitter profile picture and links.
