Play Now: Game Inspired by Gmail

The development team Gmail today published a post in which indicates a very cool little game, inspired by Gmail. The Galactic Inbox is particularly interesting because it was built entirely from technology HTML5, the browser most modern support.

This means that there is not a single line of code in Flash in the game, which in itself is impressive enough. Plus, it is fun and helps pass the time. The dynamic is similar to Space Invaders: an envelope email must shoot obstacles that are coming down the screen.

The ultimate goal of the player is releasing several smaller Gmail envelopes that are trapped in a dumpster. Although the idea is good, just can not get excited: the game’s duration is very small, consisting of only one phase.

But it is worth playing. Use the arrow keys to move the character and the spacebar to shoot.
