Tools for HTML5 Game Development

Depending on the type of games you are developing, you may want to use one or more of the many libraries that make it easy to do things that are needed in games – for example, animation, collision detection, viewpoint automation, etc. Here are some of the libraries we have used and recommend.

This is by no means a complete listing – we encourage you to look around because one of the great benefits of using HTML5 and JavaScript is the fact that there are literally thousands of JS libraries to help you construct the games you want to develop.

ImpactJSImpact is a JavaScript game engine that allows you to develop HTML5 Games in no time. We highly recommend this engine as it is the fastest of its genre and highly versatile. This engine also comes with the incredible Weltmeister editor which lets you easily create tile-based levels. Both FUBAR and Furious Fowl were created with this engine.
