Play the game

This is an implementation of DuckHunt in Javascript and HTML5. It uses the PixiJS rendering engine, Green Sock Animations, Howler, and Bluebird Promises.


This game supports WebGL and Canvas rendering via the PixiJS rendering engine.


This game will attempt to use the WebAudioAPI and fallback to HTML5 Audio if necessary. Audio is loaded and controlled via HowlerJS.


The animations in this game are a combination of PixiJS MovieClips built from sprite images and tweens. Since PixiJS doesn't provide a tweening API, Green Sock was used.

Game Logic

The flow of this game is managed using Javascript. The main chunks of business logic are implemented as ES6 classes which are transpiled to ES5 using Babel.
