While I am working on a brand new awesome course focused on HTML5 game development, I never forget my loyal readers, so here I am with the 4th update to my book “HTML5 Cross Platform Game Development Using Phaser 3“, with 6 new pages teaching you how to use a Texture Atlas to improve performances on entry level devices.
Remember, the more devices capable of running your game, the more customers you’ll get.
All examples have been updated to Phaser 3.22.0 and now the book has 202 pages, 32 source code examples and one Android Studio project.
The update is free for any loyal reader who already purchased the book, but if you still haven’t the most interesting book of the century, here’s your chance to get it!
