It's hard to believe that I built the Dr. Presto widget, a NES Dr. Mario clone, so many years ago. I remember back then that I really wanted to have music playing while playing the game, but I also remember I just couldn't find a way to get MIDI files to play in a widget (or even in a website!) context without resorting to Flash or some other heavy, embedded applet.
Fast forward to today, where I found myself thinking about it again. Heck, the Dr. Mario MIDI files I wanted to use are still in the folder where I store the widget files. I never threw them out. Could I make it work this time?
It turns out that the HTML5
Give Dr. Presto a try yourself. The music is turned off by default (I'm not a monster!) so just click the little speaker icon to get it playing. You can turn off the music at any time by pausing the game or hitting the speaker icon again.
Hope you like! And remember to take your vitamins.
