comment Essential knowledge for making HTML/JavaScript-based games
Wow, pac-man. Groundbreaking. There's a reason nobody uses HTML/JS in gaming for anything other than tech demos.

comment Dynamic pathing algorithm for tower defense game
Speaking as someone who helped create PennMUSH, and who's been in the industry 15 years, I can say firmly that I've never heard anyone use that extremely unnecessary shorthand. Never once.

comment Dynamic pathing algorithm for tower defense game
He means a crowd of enemies, like one sees in a tower defense game. It's not industry lingo; he's just being conversational. Look, A* is retarded fast. It's fast enough that we were using it to pathfind for groups on 500x500 maps on the Gameboy Advance, which is an ARM7 running at 16 mHz. Even from inside flash, if your A* isn't making time individually, the implementation is the problem. I'll put my AS3 A* pathfinder in scutil.com this weekend. That should remove any need for you to bother with mobs (for which the appropriate answer is something like D* or R*). You're welcome.
