In this book three standard game technologies are examined, compared, and contrasted: CSS Sprites, Canvas, and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). You will see examples using each of the three to move graphics, detect collisions, and more. Variations within Canvas and SVG are explored as well. You'll also see examples for phone-specific technologies such as Touch, Vibration, Device Orientation, and Screen Orientation. You'll also be shown how to upgrade your Firefox OS phone, how to use the Simulator if you don't have a phone, and how to use the App Manager to put your apps on phones.
