HTML5 Pong is a great template for developers who are new to HTML5/Canvas or game development in general
This blog is part of a series
Okay full disclosure I wrote this template but that’s not the only reason why I think its great. This template shows you how easy it is to get your game up and running using the CreateJS suite of libraries and HTML5/Canvas. It shows you how to implement simple game development methods like “game states” and the “game loop”.
I get ask this question over and over again
“I want to build my game for Windows 8, where do I start?”
The HTML5 Pong game template is meant to be a starting point. It is written to be simple and easy to follow.
Download the source code for HTML5 Pong and try it out. If you’re looking for a HTML5 game template with a little more meat check out Yeti Bowl, a previous template of the week pick.
Hi ! Thanks for this template, it was a very fun challenge ;)
BUT : I'm in the process to release the app and this error showed up :
Fortunately, this one has an extremely simple fix in Visual Studio:
-Load the file in VS and from the File menu select "Advanced Save Options..."
-Then from the drop down select: "Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) - Codepage 65001" (make sure it's the one with signature)
-Then press OK, rebuild the project and you should be good to go.
@Philippe of "RegExCalibur" - Thanks for sharing the fix! These templates are just something to help people get started, so they are definitely "as-is" so I appreciate sharing of any bugs encountered, especially if you found a fix!
