Working on a new HTML5 game engine for iPhone
I’ve just completed the first stage of development on a new 2D HTML5 game engine for iPhone.
It is a complete re-write of the engine used in my iPhone platform game and it achieves a much higher and more consistent frame rate. I’m currently very pleased to be getting a consistent 17-18 FPS running full screen on an iPhone 3G.
It is a scrolling tile-based engine, meaning it should suitable for most 2D games. I’d like to use it to create another platformer, or maybe a shoot ‘em up this time would be cool, but the engine could be used for other game types too.
I need your help! to turn it into a finished game. This is a call out to any artists who would like to get involved, please drop me an email with examples of your work. My address can be found on the about page.
I intend to release 2 versions of the game:-
- a demo version that runs in Mobile Safari but has no sound and few levels, and
- a full version that can be purchased from the app store.
Revenues made from the app store version would be shared with the artist, so there might even be a few dollars in it for you!
