New amazing HTML5 games appear every now and then and for justice’ sake, we should state that their graphics and sound effects are on rather high level. Game developers can do in HTML5 almost everything they did in Flash before. Shooters, arcades, puzzles, races, action, strategies – this is not the full list of games you can enjoy on HTML5 platform.

So what are the main advantages of HTML5 games? First of all HTML5 is an open technology, which means that it is free and doesn’t require complicated technical tools, a simple text editor would be enough for coding. Just agree that this is essential moment for game developers and corporations. Another great advantage of HTML5 games is their compatibility with wide range of gadgets and devices. The users are not tied to certain device, they can play anywhere on any platform they have at hand. And the last but not the least merit is easiness of their usage. You avoid all these installation and downloading issues and can start the game straight away!
