Cross Platform Problems… Audio Disaster… No sound on Mobile at all Looping only works in FireFox if it is the newest beta (FireFox 11) LocalStorage Not all browsers support it Used to save previous settings & high score Form fields Implemented completely different everywhere
Main Game Play Elements 3 Enemies Show Damage 3 Towers Show Radius Delete Health etc.
Player Determined Values Enemy Health Speed Gold Earned Tower Distance Speed Power Cost to Build Saved between games in local storage
What went wrong Audio OpenGL Needed more testing Browser Compatibility Nothing worked on my worthless mobile
Conclusions Do more research before starting! A game from scratch, even a prototype, takes lots of time! Test more! Earlier! More often! Constantly!
