Readers will learn the basics of making games with HTML and JavaScript with the programming languages used by professional game developers. Readers will learn how to:

  • Make images move and respond to keyboard presses.
  • Draw objects on the canvas and use variables and timers.
  • Import images and add sounds.
  • Develop their skills and build some amazing games!

To create the games in this book, children will need a desktop computer or a laptop. The games require a proper keyboard so will not work well on a tablet or iPad. It is recommended that children should be supervised when using the internet, especially when using a new website.
