Who This Book Is Not For

This book is not for developers who are looking to build fully cross-browser and mobile games with JavaScript. While HTML5 has come a long way in the past few years, we are still far away from widespread adoption of the underlying technologies Impact relies on, such as Canvas, sound, and advanced user input. That doesn’t mean it isn’t possible to make a cross-platform game with Impact but before we move on, I just want to set your expectations correctly. Impact requires modern browsers and even on mobile devices with browsers that support HTML5, you will still run into audio issues that may affect the ability of your game to run correctly for everyone.
