Arctic.js is a JavaScript game engine, written specifically with smartphones in mind.  It is optimized to run on smartphone browsers as smoothly as possible.

Arctic.js is written in JavaScript and uses the HTML5 canvas for rendering the games you create. Among the different features it provides are: hierarchical display lists, event propagation, and useful animation features.

Those features are similar to ActionScript3 APIs, which should make Flash developers moving to the web platform more at ease using it. Arctic.js is released under the MIT License.
