I have a client that wants us to develop a simple web game for posting on their website. The client wants us to create a game where you have to try to match a photo with a foreign language word. Or, try to match the military rank with the text. Something simple like that.
What programming language do you all recommend we learn to create these simple games? HTML5? Jquery? Flash? Are there many demo scripts available for one of these languages that we can customize and use on our website without having to re-invent the wheel?
Thanks for any pointers you can provide!
The biggest problem with Flash is that it isn’t supported by any iDevices, so you’re losing a huge chunk of potential users, particularly mobile users, if you rely on Flash.
HTML5 is dangerous for real-world deployment, as the specs aren’t finalised, and browser support is variable.
We want to deploy this game on a real-world website that has thousands of visits a week.
