Favimon (2010)

Favimon is a web-based game in which you battle your favourite websites, building a collection of icons as you attempt to conquer the web.

Favicons, or favourites icons, are small graphical icons which are used to identify websites in your web browser's address bar, tabs or favourites. In Favimon, these icons come to life as characters that can be challenged and collected using a Pokémon-inspired battle system.

Favimon is a browser game coded in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP. It uses jQuery, jQuery UI and plugins qtip2, timers, and jStorage. It retrieves favicons using Google's favicon API and Jason Cartwright's getFavicon app.

In February 2011, Favimon was awarded Most Original Game in the Mozilla Labs Game On 2010 Competition.
