Play HTML5 games through the Wii U web browser

Earlier this month, website PlayBoxie opened a website so that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners could play HTML5 games through the consoles’ web browsers. The same functionality was extended to Wii U within the last week.



You can check out the site here. If you visit the page on Wii U, it automatically detects your console and provides a selection of titles compatible only with the Wii U controller.

Thanks to JurassicJunkie for the tip.

    Not seemingly impressed. What I’m seeing feels like the type of stuff 9 out of 10 iOS/Android owners may have on their tablets.

      Yeah but not everyone has a tablet or a smartphone so this is nice.

        ^this.

    EXCELLENT!

      I beat Cut The Rope. That’s the most functional one I played. A few of them have content where the wii u toolbar is, and some are really slow.

        I believe you can toggle the tool bar on and off if you push the control stick like a button.

          Awesome! Thanks!

    some games like Pac-Man somehow don’t co-operate with the Wii U game pad

    • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

      It works fine for me. Pac-man never turned on a dime

      • James Fox

        The D-pad only controlled the webpage not Pac-Man which rendered the game unplayable

        • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

          Try clicking (or poking, whatever) inside the game then using the D-Pad

  • Adrian Brown

    try Universe Within, it even has motion controls

    Nice. Sometimes I want simple experiences like this to pass a little time.

    Ehhh… Had a whole year to give it to us but decides instead to wait until after it had been given to the other consoles first…

    I hate playing second fiddle to ANYONE…
