25 Amazing JavaScript Games (Some Fun And Inspiration)

JavaScript, with the rise of Ajax, is definitely a must-know-well for every web designer/developer.

Besides form controls, alerts & similar simple JavaScript usage, you can almost do anything with the help of JavaScript (& Canvas). Some samples are:

  • Drag’n drops
  • Animations
  • CSS manipulations, Ajax & more.

And there are JavaScript libraries which make them easier like jQuery, MooTools, Prototype, etc.

For any developer looking for advanced JS techniques, games are a real treasure.
You can easily see examples of animations, interactivity, smart solutions for browser related math functions & so.. And they are definitely a source of inspiration as you sometimes face with a feature that you never thought could be existed.
