I first encountered canvas while working on wsilent, but didn't actually use it and develop with it until I worked on fusion.

Fusion

Fusion is a browser based space shooter written in JavaScript and making heavy use of the HTML 5 canvas element. It began life as a Space Invaders clone, but has shifted more towards a Tower Defense style game as it is developed. I wrote nearly all of the code, and the art was done by George Emond.

You control your ship by using the left and right arrow keys and fire by hitting the space bar. Your goal is to protect your generators from the waves of incoming ships. Between each wave, you are able to purchase upgrades for your ship, shields and generators.
