Lightweight Tile Engine For HTML5 Game Creation

This a a working version from what I learn from Johne Graham

Additions include

  • dynamic viewport
  • circular rendering
  • gridded tile sets
  • sprite movements and animation
  • kinetic mouse scrolling
  • implemented timestep and minimal physics
  • plus more....

Please try this out in Chrome before any other browser. I believe it is because Chrome uses V8, but chrome will get around 233fps where all other browsers get only around 90fps.

Status

This project is a WORK-IN-PROGRESS and is not yet ready to use but you are free to take it and make it into your own! Right now this project mainly supports chrome because of how nice V8 is but it should support other browsers in the future.

TODO(in the near future)

  • Fix Firefox, Background does not show up
  • Improve collision detection and more basic physics
  • timesteped sprite animation
  • Better Comments for those learning
  • Tests
