Want to start building great web games with HTML5 and JavaScript? Moving from Flash or other game platforms? Already building HTML5 games and want to get better and faster at it? This guide brings together everything you need: expert guidance, sample projects, and working code!

Evan Burchard walks you step-by-step through quickly building 10 popular types of games. Each chapter implements a game within a well-understood genre; introduces a different free, open source, and easy-to-use HTML5 game engine; and is accompanied with full JavaScript source code listings.

Each game recipe uses tested and well-proven patterns that address the development challenges unique to that genre, and shows how to use existing tools and engines to build complete substantial game projects in just hours. Need a quick JavaScript primer? Evan Burchard provides that, too!

Coverage includes

• Mastering an essential HTML5/JavaScript game development toolset: browser, text editor, terminal, JavaScript console, game engine, and more
• Accelerating development with external libraries and proven patterns
• Managing browser differences between IE, Firefox, and Chrome
• Getting up to speed on web development with a QUIZ game built with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and JQuery
