HTML5 Games run on just about all devices. Learn how to create them from someone who has spent the last 20 years creating casual games. All HTML5 games are based around a knowledge of displaying content on a Canvas using JavaScript. We use the latest JavaScript version, ES6, so as well as learning game development you will also learn the latest JavaScript syntax. In this course we start with the basics of individual images on a Canvas. From there we move onto sprites – developing step by step a sprite library that you are free to use in your own games. The library allows you to display frame animated sprites that show a flip book of images to display walking and running characters and much more. 

You will learn: 

About physics to easily add dynamic collision detection to your games.

How to create platform games, puzzle and card games.

How to add multiple layers of audio.

How to add a preloader to your games.

How to add the bells and whistles that make your game stand out.

How to handle multiple users via WebSockets. 

All code is free to use in your own games. The course contains lots of assets and code examples that you are free to use in your own games. As a course student you also have access to an online tool for creating spritesheets and animations. 

Instructor Details

I started work in 1980 as a cartoon animator. Buying a Sinclair ZX81 back in 1982 was the start of a migration to a full time programmer. The ZX81 quickly was swapped for the Sinclair Spectrum, a Z80 processor and a massive 48K of ram made this a much better computer to develop games and I developed a few games using Sinclair Basic and then Assembler. The Spectrum was swapped for a Commodore Amiga and I developed more games in the shareware market, moving to using C. At this stage it was essentially a hobby. Paid work was still animated commercials. I final bought a PC in the early nineties and created a sprite library ActiveX control and authored my first book, aimed at getting designers into programming. In the mid nineties along came Flash and the company I was now running, Catalyst Pictures, became known for creating games. Since then the majority of my working life has been creating games, first in Flash and Director, as Director published the first widely available 3D library that would run in a browser using a plugin. In recent years game development has involved using HTML5 and Canvas. Using both custom code and various libraries. A particular preference is to use the latest version of Adobe Flash, now called Animate that exports to the Javascript library Createjs. I've worked for the BBC. Johnson and Johnson. Deloitte, Mars Corporation and many other blue chip clients. The company I've run for over 30 years has won a number of awards and been nominated for a BAFTA twice, the UK equivalent to the Oscar. Over the last 20 years I have been struck by just how difficult it has been to get good developers and have decided to do something about this rather than just complain. I run a CodeClub for kids 9-13 years old and intend to develop a number of courses for Udemy hoping to inspire and educate new developers.

    I wanted to like this course, the problem is all the code was already written. He just walked you through what he wrote, this is more for very experienced coders who just to know better ways to develop applications.

    This is the first game development course I have been through where I really fell like I am being taught by an absolute expert/professional in the field.

    I think is really good, although I think you need some little knowledge of javascript.

    Everything I wanted to know about HTML5 game development, but didn’t know how to ask. Well organized, concise, professional graphics, knowledgeable and experienced instructor. Clear communication.

    Awful, not what I expected at all If you want to teach people to go from a novice to a pro you need to go step by step and explain the concepts in detail at every step, not I wrote some code and be like bla bla and … bla bla… and now it works. Not worth the money… seriously.

    Another good one by Nik, this time canvas. The course is right to the words of the author, as in the description. The course properly targets developers with intermediate level of JS ES6 (OO) with no knowledge of animation. It is taught with follow my code videos, which should be right for intermediate level. It is important to mention the use of sprites instead of creating shapes, so the course is not for advanced animation in pure canvas. There are a lot of similar courses in the market and a lot of what is taught here can be done with dedicated packages (eg. tween.js), so it is more about learning the basics. However you will get very good, hard to find tips that could be applicable to more complex situations (eg. code structure, tricks explained, scene setup, others). FIRST TIMERS and PRO’S TIPS.
