Best of all, code for six basic games is provided, so you can modify, further develop, and, ultimately, make it your own.

Format: Paperback
The first thing you do at the book is make a 100% HTML5,JS no external libraries games it really set the hands on feeling that the book have.
Everything is pretty explained and there are several techniques and ways to make a game that you will learn.CSS3,SVG,Canvas etc.
The javascript is great and i learned several new things that don't apply just for games but js skills in general.
If you have the time to read just one book about games i would recommend you to buy this one.
