Dragon Warrior 4 in HTML5

by Jason on March 9, 2015

My latest endeavor has been to learn a bit of HTML5 game programming. After speaking with a few colleagues with significant experience in these things and also watching a few good YouTube videos I’ve decided to develop a game without using any game engines.

The goal is primarily to learn and to have fun and so far I’ve done a lot of both!

The game I have decided to build is a remake of Dragon Warrior 4 (NES) in HTML5.

Since I am totally new to game development I thought it would be interesting to document my progress via YouTube videos.

So if you’re interested then subscribe to my channel or have a look at the code as it’s developed.

Or, just play the game!


Now with is a throwback. I remember Dragon Quest Retsuden, the anime series based on this game. Interesting endeavor on your part. I’ll check it out.

I think you are doing it right! First figure it out without a framework! Nice start on your game! One thing you might want to consider is to include delta time, that is home much time has elapsed since the last time your tick function was called. This way you adjust animations so they are consistent no matter how fast or slow the frame rate it.
