A complete guide to HTML5, with full working examples. The book start describing the all Canvas API, and after 8 chapter, all is about creating a video game, in fact since chapters before you are already making video games but very basic.

I really like this book, because is easy to understand and have a lot of working examples.

I would definitely recommend this book, not matter if you just want a taste of Canvas (like me) or you want to build full games with Canvas.

This is a fairly comprehensive treatment of this new technology. It has many useful examples. These include small demos of individual features. But it also has presents reasonably comprehensive game examples. These are particularly useful in giving ideas for software architecture, as well as showing how to use the canvas.
