Hi @umen


After leaving Flash game development and deciding to go with HTML5, I did a HUGE amount of research.


I found 3 engines that I think are amazing - Panda, Phaser and Construct 2.


You can't go wrong with Phaser, it a brilliant engine + with amazing pre-build functions and has a huge community.


Panda is my favourite, because it's VERY easy to use and has wicked options for hires assets, retina and a lot of other cool stuff.


I LOVE Panda and couldn't be happier with it - if you decide to go this way, please use the 2.0 dev version as its very stable and soon to be released.


Construct 2 is a drag and drop game-maker. It is the easiest software I've ever used to make games. The problem with Construct 2 (for me) is that you're limited by picking a resolution. If the resolution you pick is too high (because you want it to look good on hires displays and big screens), some weaker devices might choke.


In my opinion, Construct 2 is brilliant for making pixel games and I'm definitely going to use it for this purpose in the future.


Hope this helps :)
