Gish Mechanics

Gish is a 2D, side scrolling platformer made in 2005. The source code was made available in 2010. I was interested in replicating the unique mechanics it used in a slightly more efficient and accessible format, so I created a tiny simulation of the player's character using WebGL. It's written entirely from scratch, using only Javascript, WebGL, and a glMatrix utility, without any physics libraries or game making software.
