There are many benefits to designing games in HTML5, it’s not proprietary so you don’t need to pay the royalties that the Google Play Store or App Store require; it’s free. It’s cross-platform, so if you’re using a tablet, smartphone, desktop or smart TV, the browser you’re using should support HTML5 and work seamlessly. HTML5 can write web apps even when you’re not connected to the internet, it can tell websites your location and can also handle high definition video and graphics, which make it a great games development platform.
When you make a gaming web app, in order to publish it you just build and then publish it like you would any website. Create a domain name (www) and host the website like you would any website. If you want to distribute your game to other platforms (such as on iOS and Android), we can turn it into a native app for you. This is called wrapping, whereby we create the app for the relevant platform and then put the game inside the app so it acts like a web browser and runs your game in that app.
In order to develop the game components (players, elements in the game) or sprites as they’re known as, scenes, animation and sound we can pull from the HTML5 game frameworks. These are libraries that contain the main components for building a web app game and are open source where they are constantly being added to and updated.
