Some months ago I released my first indie minibook From null to full HTML5 cross platform game just to test the differences between writing a book for a publisher Vs self publishing a book and I was really surprised how good it performed and for the awesome feedback I received.
Today I am ready to show a brand new minibook about a topic I am sure you will find really interesing: Create HTML5 vertical endless runner cross platform games.
I am calling it “minibook” but it’s not that “mini” since it already counts 143 pages, with more to come with free updates about a game trend which is gaining more and more popularity.
As the title suggests, I will take you by hand through the creation of two endless runner games like Rise Above and 2 Cars using Phaser framework, not only showing you how to code any single feature of both games, but even adding room for improvement and customization.
Do you want to have a look at the games you are learning to make? They are the remake of the iOS blockbuster Rise Above game by Norman Rozental and 2 Cars by Ketchapp Studio. You may need to click or tap on the games to make them start
During these months I published more than 130 Phaser tutorials and prototypes – not to mention my previous book – but this is the most detailed guide about the making of a game.
Through 143 pages and 48 source code examples you will learn even the smallest detail in the making of a vertical endless runner game, have a look at the content:
By the end of the book, you will have two complete vertical endless runner games made by you, and a lot of experience in game development.
I tried to put all the experience I made in the making of my previous books into this one, and I am sure you will find it easy and useful. I am sure you won’t find a book covering more in depth the creation of these kind of games.
