Audio Visual Effects in JavaScript Games

Visual and audio feedback is a secret ingredient that will make your JavaScript games feel good and give them that extra layer of polish. It’s little touches and attention to detail that your clients or potential hiring managers really appreciate. Let’s dive deep and make sure we really understand how to attach VFX and audio to game triggers and user generated events using just plain vanilla JavaScript. Hope you get a lot of value from this! :)

JavaScript Snake Game Tutorial - Develop a Simple Snake Game

Work on real-time JavaScript Snake game project and become a pro

Snake game is an interesting JavaScript project for beginners. Snake game is a single-player game, which we’ve been playing for a very long time. The game mainly consists of two components – snake and fruit. And we just need to take our snake to the food so that it can eat and grow faster and as the number of fruits eaten increases, the length of snake increases which makes the game more interesting. While moving if the snake eats its own body, then the snake dies and the game ends. Now let’s see how we can create this.

JavaScript Project Prerequisites

To implement the snake game in JavaScript you should have basic knowledge of:

1. Basic concepts of JavaScript

2. HTML

3. CSS

Download Project Code

Before proceeding ahead please download source code of Snake Game: Snake Game in JavaScript

Steps to Build the Project – JavaScript Snake game

1. Create Html file

HTML builds the basic structure. This file contains some basic HTML tags like div, h1, title, etc. also we’ve used bootstrap (CDN is already included).

index.html:

Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>DataFlair Snake game</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.0/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-9aIt2nRpC12Uk9gS9baDl411NQApFmC26EwAOH8WgZl5MYYxFfc+NcPb1dKGj7Sk" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="static/style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
        <div class ="Jumbotron">
        <h1>DataFlair Snake game using vanilla JavaScript</h1>

            <h2 class="btn btn-info"> 
                Score:   0 
            </h2>

            <div class="containerCanvas">
                <canvas id="canvas" width="500" height="500" class="canvasmain"> </canvas>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <script src="static/fruit.js"></script>
    <script src="static/snake.js"></script>
    <script src="static/draw.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

We have used simple HTML tags except tag. This new tag was introduced in HTML5, which is used to draw graphics, via JavaScript. It is nothing without JavaScript so we will use it in our JavaScript file to actually draw the board and the objects required. We’ll see its implementation in JS files.

Game Development with .NET

We’ve launched a new Game Development with .NET section on our site. It’s designed for current .NET developers to explore all the choices available to them when developing games. It’s also designed for new developers trying to learn how to use .NET by making games. We’ve also launched a new game development Learn portal for .NET filled with tutorials, videos, and documentation provided by Microsoft and others in the .NET game development community. Finally, we launched a step-by-step Unity get-started tutorial that will get you started with Unity and writing C## scripts for it in no time. We are excited to show you what .NET has to offer to you when making games. .NET is also part of Microsoft Game Stack, a comprehensive suite of tools and services just for game development.

.NET for game developers

.NET is cross-platform. With .NET you can target over 25+ different platforms with a single code base. You can make games for, but not limited to, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, and mixed reality devices.

C## is the most popular programming language in game development. The wider .NET community is also big. There is no lack of expertise and support you can find from individuals and user groups, locally or online.

.NET does not just cover building your game. You can also use it to build your game’s website with ASP.NET, your mobile app using Xamarin, and even do remote rendering with Microsoft Azure. Your skills will transfer across the entire game development pipeline.

Available game engines

The first step to developing games in .NET is to choose a game engine. You can think of engines as the frameworks and tools you use for developing your game. There are many game engines that use .NET and they differ widely. Some of the engines are commercial and some are completely royalty free and open source. I am excited to see some of them planning to adopt .NET 5 soon. Just choose the engine that better works for you and your game. Would you like to read a blog post to help you learn about .NET game engines, and which one would be best for you?

Building an Audio Visualizer With JavaScript.

Creating visuals to go along with music is one of the oldest past times. You will find many videos on Youtube with some pretty neat designs being played in parallel with music. Usually your operating system will also have a built in audio visualizer, although its relatively limited. But the web as a whole seems to be lacking in a nice selection of visualizers. This is likely due to the canvas api and web audio api being relatively new.

Audio Visualizer Libraries

If your looking for a pre built library to use to visualize audio, I would suggest Wave.jsfor dynamic visuals that respond to a audio html element or media stream. This library works with browser environments and has a npm package for React type environments. For working with static visuals you can use Wavesurfer.js. Which has been around for a while but does lack a npm package.

Building Your Own Visualizer

To build your own visualizer with javascript there are only a few basic components that you need to get the flow working.

  • The canvas api
  • The web audio api
  • requestAnimationFrame

With these tools you can build just about any 2d or 3d visual.

Top Javascript Game Engines and Libraries

Gaming is something everyone enjoys, be it a 10-year-old kid or an employed person. There’s no better recreation at home than to plug in your headphones or speakers and get lost in the world of video games. After all, what’s better than fighting criminals or driving supercars at very high speed, or play a sport you are bad at?

For Developing the game you adore so dearly, there has to be a lot of work that goes on for months, comprising of a huge team of developers, designers, and whatnot. What might seem like a small game has a lot of work and sweat put into it, mostly.

Game development these days is mostly done using Game Engines, simple software that allows you to create the graphics, sound, animations, physics, and dynamics of the game.

So in this article, we are going to talk about Game Engines and what is the best possible option right now. But before going into detail, let us talk about the basics.
