HTML5 Mobile Game Development by Example - Veggies vs Zombies

Learn how to create games similar to the award winning Plants vs Zombies

What if you could use your HTML, CSS and JavaScript knowledge to create awesome mobile games for iOS, Android and the web?

In this course we’ll build an entire game called Veggies vs Zombies, defence game inspired in the popular game Plants vs Zombies.

What you’ll learn in this course:

  • Create a complete multilevel defence game
  • Basics of 2D games: sprites, scenes, stages.
  • Collision detection.
  • Making games that adjust to the screen resolution – a must in a post-pc world!
  • Loading levels from JSON files.
  • Adding audio to make your games memorable.
  • Putting it all together to make a fun and addictive gameplay!

This course was created by Pablo Farias Navarro, founder of ZENVA and the tech blogs GameDev Academy, HTML5 Hive and De Idea A App. Pablo specializes in web and mobile app development and has produced over 20 courses teaching over 35,000 students how to make games, apps and websites.
