First of all, welcome James williams.
I hope I am posting in the right place.
I am teaching kids how to program games. So far I used pygame. it seems that python is easy enough for kids, light enough to run without a heavy IDE and it's fast enough to run games. who new?
Anyway - now I want to migrate to Javascript games - as this will allow them to place the games online as well.

I found gamesjs so far. yet to write some code though. hoping it is good enough since they claim to be a pygame like implementation in javascript.
What I basically need is Sprites with collisions without too much fuss.
I fear that prototyping might be too hard to overcome. ( even though they know inheritance ).

Any advice/ideas would be most helpful.
3d games is also a goal ( or even close to 3d would be good ).
I know JQuery well - if it matters in any way.

Thanks,
Guy.

Guy,

I don't have any experience with gamejs. As you can see in this list, there are many choices. I suggest you try a few and decide which one works best for your workflow and knowledge.
 
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
