THIS TUTORIAL HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW
Games account for about half of the apps in the typical app store. They are among the first thing ported to any new platform. Games help drive technology forward. This year’s edition of the popular HTML Canvas Deep Dive will focus specifically on building cross platform games for mobile and desktop. We will cover everything needed to build basic games with animation, scrolling, sound effects and music, image loading, sprites, and even joystick support. Then we will learn how to package them to run on desktop and mobile devices, both in and outside of app stores.
