Overview: This talk will be about the cocos2d JS, a complete toolchain for developing multi-platform games for both the Web and Mobile, which goes all the way from rapid prototyping to a finished high performing game. There are three main components: a game engine (cocos2d), a physics engine (Chipmunk), and a visual editor (CocosBuilder). For the web, no plugins are required. For mobile, it uses JavaScript bindings for the C/C++ version of cocos2d and Chipmunk, achieving a performance 10 times faster than other JS engines/JS accelerators. This talk will further describe all of the above mentioned features, and more.
