Do you want to build polished, beautiful JavaScript games and bring your game characters to life? Let me show you 2 of my favourite techniques you can use to get complete control over any sprite sheet. This is advanced vanilla JavaScript sprite animation, explained for beginners! Have fun 🙂


Adding animated sprite sheets to your JavaScript games is one of the fastest and the most impactful ways to bring your games to the next level and to add that professional look and polish you want. Games with sprites are great at pulling your audience into the fantasy you are trying to create and they are also really fun to make. Today I will show you everything you need to know about sprite animation with vanilla JavaScript and by the end of this course, you will be able to have complete control over any sprite sheet you choose.


I will show the easiest beginner friendly sprite animation technique first and then we will go a bit deeper and learn how to properly set up different player animations, so we can swap between them by changing just one variable and use it in our game. Do you want to learn more about 2D game development? Have you been learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript for a while and want to bring your front end web development projects to the next level? Then this course is for you. Let’s dive deep into JavaScript game development and learn about sprite animation together. This course is for beginners.
