Simple Games: Isometric Maps

Turning a tilebased array game into an isometric map. In the browser again, naturally.
This is something I have been playing about with. Once a successful top-down tile based game can be created it shouldn't be too hard to turn it into an Isometric game.

However the maths gets a little more complicated as we are now in 3d!

See my isometric map insipired by the ZX Spectrum game Ant Attack.

Play the original Ant Atack.
