I am at a competition at work for who can make the best canvas game. Theme is a top down shooter... Winner gets dinner for free.

Anyways I have been looking around looking for some good resources on game deving on the canvas. Any body got any good ones?


This won't be specific to top-down shooter, but totally canvas for sure.

These two should be good to start with.

Anyways, Canvas is simply a "graphics" renderer, the game logic behind can be anything gamedev related, you just gotta write in JS and display through Canvas API.

Whether these two are "best resources"... Depends, because, there is no such thing as "the best".
