If you prefer NG then go for it, you made your choice already.

NG currently has no "html5" target (as emscripten has some trouble with the GarbageCollector NG uses).

so if you need HTML -> go Monkey or Cerberus-X (if you want to have a "similar" language).


Else you might better enjoy Godot, Unity, LibGDX, ... and all the other well supported kits. Albeit this means to learn the languages (your "coding skill" is versatile and independend from languages).

For 2D web games I generally go with Javascript + Pixi.js
My issue with the higher tier engines is that their HTML5 export generally creates something where the pure engine code is 2 or 3 times the size of my entire game.  :))
But I am pretty restricted in filesizes due to the customers, might not be an problem for own web games.

Yes, for the foreseeable future you cannot build HTML5 stuff ("export via emscripten") with NG.

If you like the Monkey language, look into CX. If you like the Lua language, look into Gideros Studio.

Have to concur with this one. Cerberus X is actively in development and has great HMTL5 support.

So if you're after a very capable and free language then use that. Alternatively if you want to pay a little then try AGK. If you want the latest frilly whizzy bang features of super duper 3D-ness then give the latest version of Unity a whirl ( *free but a beast to learn properly ).

*free to use but if you earn X amount you have to buy a license.
Until the next time...

the thing is that i know blitz very good so i wanted to remain in this area..
plus i can transfer code easily .. from language to language..

yet.. i tend to like unity..
i dont know im confused.. unity pisses me off a bit even that unity seems cool on youtube
i dont know what Cerberus X is.. i need to check..

anyway im still in blitzmax doing my stuff so no hurry.. will see..

i just thought that blitzmax ng supports html5.

there are so many blitz stuff that its confusing..

Monkey.. monkey 2 blitzmax blitzmaxng .. and god knows whats more..

Im a guy who likes one language and thats all :) but i must adapt

The question is, why do you want to target HTML5. Making money on that platform? Naah, these times are over.
