Now that you know enough front end technologies to be dangerous, lets use those skills to make a game. We'll take a look at the open source framework Phaser to learn how to create your own browser based game. Together we'll explore topics such as sprite animation, collision detection, and scoring, by the end we'll have a playable platformer you can tinker with.
