4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of essays on in-browser game development 9 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While it's not a beginner's book on HTML5 game development or a primer on using the web stack to build games, it does have an entertaining and informative collection of case studies about how to do various things with HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3.

Some very neat coding patterns are highlighted, along with some extremely worthwhile chapters on WebGL and multiplayer environments with WebSockets. Because the chapters are independently written by separate authors, some of the material is repeated and the level of expertise tends to differ in explaining the concepts, but it makes it all the more valuable for you to find the voice that's right for your level, and you can jump around without anachronism.

If you're an intermediate-to-experienced game developer looking for some inspiration from colleague, this is a great read.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book doesn't contain many things from the product description 17 July 2012
By Matthew Jaquish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The book's description claims several things that do not actually appear in the book:

* "entity interpolation from Snowball Fight"
* "trait-based gaming in Grave Danger"
* "the advanced use of WebGL from the game Bar Fight"
* "the holy grail of making a unique game like Z-Type"
* "how to build split-screen games as in the addictive Robots Are People Too."

NONE of those topics appear in the book. If you are planning to get the book for any of those topics, you will be sorely disappointed when you cannot find them.
