Whether you are new to game development or an experienced developer, you will be surprised by how easy it is to create HTML5 cross-platform games with Cocos2d-JS. In this book, you will use JavaScript to create spectacular and exciting games of different genres.

Without any dreary theory, which often discourages technical book readers, each chapter will guide you through the creation of different games, each packed with new and exciting features.

You will begin by learning the basics of a cross-platform game. You'll also learn to animate, rotate, scroll, and tween sprites. You will learn to make your game more enticing by adding your own special touch using features such as music, sound effects, and physics. You'll also learn to protect, sitelock, export, and publish the games you have created. By the end of the book, you'll have created a complete cross-platform game right from scratch, featuring leader boards and third-party adverts, complete with the final polish every game should require.
