A CSS-only game playable with keyboard! 🀯 (No, you are not dreaming)

You think it's a clickbait title or it's a joke but No! I created a CSS-only game that you can play using your keyboard. No hidden JavaScript and 100% CSS Magic.

Enjoy the first-ever CSS-only game playable using the keyboard! πŸ₯³

Super CSS Mario

πŸ‘‰ Start a New Game πŸ‘ˆ

Overview of the CSS-only game

If you prefer here is a codepen link and it's a chrome-only experimentation (like all the cool stuff).

Record yourself and show me your best attemptπŸ‘‡ (No screenshots and no cheating 😈)

Share it so that people know what is possible using modern CSS features or if you want another argument against the "CSS is not a programming language" 😜

Loved it! And enjoyed playing.

Could not even believe someone could build this just with CSS!

You should launch this project on Peerlist Project Spotlight β€” It's a launchpad for your side project. I believe your work will be much appreciated there as well.

Sweet! I've been recently planning an update to my Combo-Breaker CSS game, using new features in CSS (will of course, share a tutorial when I do so, as before). But this is... next level! Great work!
