comment Why don't all games permit changing the field of view?
Allowing an adjustable FOV is potentially much more work than just one line of code. J. Kyle Pittman from Gearbox wrote a good piece about the problems adding adjustable FOV to Borderlands 2 caused, you should read it: gearboxsoftware.com/community/articles/1061/…

comment Simple browser game help
JClaspill makes a good point, the player can do whatever they want in your game's code with a JavaScript debugger unless you keep the game logic on a server. There is also the fact that localStorage gets wiped out if the player clears their cache, you might want to warn players of this.
