I wrote about Starling JS recently, but there are tonnes of similar JavaScript graphics libraries out there that are worth exploring. One that’s got me quite excited is pixi.js, which has a very similar API to Starling and also boasts support for WebGL as well as Canvas.

As a quick test I ported some of my Monster Dash clone over to JavaScript. As you can see from the video above the performance is pretty damn good and of course, with JavaScript, there’s the benefit of being able to target mobile web browsers too. If you’re interested in pixi.js then take a look at this game written by its creators and also take a peek at this really nice demo that shows off some new features that are coming.
