Isometric HTML5 Game Engine

I've been playing a lot of Kairosoft games recently, I'm on holiday in Cuba and their mobile games are a great way to kill time on a long journey. Kariosoft implements beautiful pixelated 2.5d graphics across the majority of their games, it's inspired me to create an Isometric game/demo/engine in HTML5:

I'm afraid this demo is using an very early prototype of rocketbox and as a result doesn't work very well (mouse movement is currently broken), I might attempt to update it in the future.

Map culling and mouse movement

I've added map culling which will be a big optimisation when displaying large maps. I've also added keyboard drag zoom and keyboard controls to allow easier navigation.

Future plans

Lots more to do with this, stay tuned as will add elevation slopes next!
