Last tuesday I published the commented source code of “Ladderz” HTML5 game, made with Phaser.
I said it’s a “cross platform” game, and to show you it’s actually a cross platform game now you can download as a native app from Google Play, in the picture below you can see it on its Google Play page and on my daughter’s Huawei (she is forced to install my games, play them and pretend to find them awesome).
Once you install the game, you’ll see it running at 60fps with no compromise. Ok, it’s just a simple HTML5 game but I saw simpler HTML5 games run really bad once turned into native apps.
I made the port in less than five minutes without installing any software or SDK by compiling it directly on the cloud thanks to Cocoon.io which provides all the tools and services to build awesome native HTML5 apps and games with a simple workflow and all the power of Cordova.
Long story short, you upload a zip file to Cocoon cloud compiler, and you download the apk file ready to be published in Google Play store. That simple.
During next week I’ll explain some more in depth how to make small changes to your game to make it run even smoothly and how to include plugins.
But at the moment, just download Ladderz from Google Play and tell me how does it work on your phone.
