#1GAM - One Game a Month - Jan 2014 - HTML5

No New Year resolutions... but new opportunities to learn.
I've signed up for the #1GAM challenge, as a way of helping get up to speed in the technologies I'm going to need in my new job, chiefly PHP, Java and HTML5.
Last year #1GAM was the spur to encourage the creation of a community of nearly 7000 developers, all of whom tried to develop and post a game a month, resulting in over 5000 games .

The theme for January is: RESPAWN, any platform, using any language, and the idea is to try and attempt iterative development, AND shipping code.
Shipping code has always been my downfall, I dally, I riddle and never get round to actually posting the finished product. Hopefully this will change.
So for my first attempt I'm going to go the easy route, and try an HTML5 app, and a simple game. I've downloaded the Intel XDK, which builds HTML 5 and then weirdly deploys as native apps, on a range of platforms.

I might try and port the Ninja Dinosaur vs Pirate Robot Game... or maybe …
