Web Browser First Person Shooter

I saw this amazing browser game over at Extra Life, who apparently found it on gHacks.

Quote:
This game takes browser games into the next level. The deathmatch maps that are currently playable feel and play a lot like quake 2. You always play against a handful of bots using well known weapons like the rocket launcher or the minigun. You can pick up health packs and med packs, this is fun. Phosphor demands the newest shockwave plugin, you will be redirected to the download site if you donīt have it already. Take a look at the screens and head right to their website.
I just tried the game out and am AMAZED at the quality, considering it's just a shockwave plugin that runs on your browser. I'm definitely going to have to try to get some office multiplayer going.

Yeah it's pretty damn fun, too bad my computer at work can't run it.

I've been playing this one for a couple months now since I first saw it on (I think) Joystiq. And yes, it's an incredibly impressive piece of work for a Shockwave game. Plays smooth as silk on both my home P4 3.0ghz machine as well as my work laptop (Pentium M 2.0ghz).

On top of the graphics, the bot A.I. is quite impressive--it's all I can do to win 1 out of 5 matches on the highest difficulty setting. Hint: Hide in the sniper tower with the rocket launcher and blast the bots (or other players) as they attempt to come up the ramp to get the health kit.

None of those games work with my gyromouse it just stalls unless I double click my mouse on cursor and leave it in wavey pixel precise mode.

Nice games though. i dare say we will have some amazing downloadable content via flash and shockwave in the coming years.

Insane Aquarium is still one of my favourite games and thats flash.

I wish someone would remake Jump Joe 2 allready =) CGA styles FTW.

That MK3 flash looked pretty good the whole game was never over 3 meg anyway.

weird, i use it pretty often on my downtime but yeah i agree with you, i would like to see more games like this in the future, they can work for people who dont have good computers to play anything but these are old games to MSR would be pretty low

I checked this out earlier today and although it is pretty basic in design/functionality, it was still a lot better than I was expecting.

Lots of fun for a game playable in a browser

I'm curious how far this model of gaming will go, and how developers could price something like this eventually if they were looking for a ROI instead of just showing that it can be done.

I actually enjoy this game. It's nice and easy to get into. With good gameplay and an excellent AI.

Plus it's free...which is always good.

Looks nice, too bad the work PC is a P.O.S. 800mhz computer with a TNT64 video card, so the game runs pretty choppy. Have to wait until later to play it on a good computer.
