A Collection of CSS3 Hover Effects

I recently wrote a tutorial on how to create a CSS3 hover effect, the tutorial used CSS3 transitions, transforms and delays. The final result was an image which on hover an overlay rotated in with some text and a button fading and sliding in.

The inspiration for that article was a collection of effects I had created in my spare time to see what hover effects I could create using CSS3 only. In the end I created 25 different hover effects including my homage to the classic games tetris and snake.

    Great demo. Is there way to adapt this to a responsive layout? In my case I can’t specify width / height as you do in your tutorial.

    I am currently trying to implement one of these effects in my design, however I cannot get the text to center vertically or horizontally in the main container of my site. I edited the code and can get the transition to fill the entire container, however, I can’t get the text to work. Any help would be appreciated.
