This page contains multiple tutorial series that highlight different workflows for effectively creating different types of web games.

2D breakout game using pure JavaScript

In this step-by-step tutorial you'll implement a simple breakout clone using pure JavaScript. Along the way you will learn the basics of using the <canvas> element to implement fundamental game mechanics like rendering and moving images, collision detection, control mechanisms, and winning and losing states.

2D breakout game using Phaser

In this step-by-step tutorial you'll implement the same breakout clone as the previous tutorial series, except that this time you'll do it using the Phaser HTML game framework. This idea here is to teach some of the fundamentals (and advantages) of working with frameworks, along with fundamental game mechanics.
