Fast Burglars – WebGL Vehicle Game
This new game is titled “Fast Burglars” but we think it’s not so much about crime-fighting than it is about exercising your control skills. Built using Three.js, the open-source indie game lets the player drive a police car around a small town, which is seemingly nice and quiet, but is actually plagued by burglars (10 of them in the current version) running amok through the city blocks.
We thought the burglars were coins at first, because they were flat, round, and yellow. They’re actually the cutest thing about this game though.
You control the car’s movement with the arrow buttons, which felt a bit unwieldy at first, but don’t worry you’ll get better at it soon enough. Once we got the hang of it, it was pretty fun just driving around as fast as you can go.
We particularly liked the additional ability to flip the car by pressing the space bar. It let us get out of tricky situations involving walls or trees.
