This is a different book format for game development – unlike anything you have seen. As I create a generic game in html5 using phaser.js framework, you develop your own game by simply following and translating my easy concepts into your own game design. When you complete this workbook, unlike other game development books, you will have your own game, not a game of the author's.

For example, if you have never created an online game in html5 and JavaScript, you might like to start with chapters 1 through 3 while a seasoned game developer might like chapters 4, 8, 11 and the appendix. The workbook's appendix is a resource dictionary with all the open-source free assets on the Internet. Each chapter guides you in my decision/design process you see why I am choosing various business and software results – all of this in well-commented source code so you can get it right away.

In summary, you complete your own exciting game in your selected genre using the free open source Phaser JavaScript Gaming Framework and other JavaScript tools following this step-by-step workbook. The power of the Phaser JavaScript Framework is yours.
