SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 21, 2012) - Ludei, the creator of CocoonJS, a mobile gaming platform used by HTML5 game developers and publishers to accelerate game performance by over 1000 percent on mobile, today announced that Scirra has integrated CocoonJS into its popular Construct 2 HTML5 game making engine used by thousands of HTML5 game developers.
CocoonJS provides game developers with an easy -- and free -- way to turn HTML5 games into iOS and Android apps without changing any code while having native like performance. Compared to other HTML5 game platforms -- such as GameClosure, appMobi and Spaceport -- Ludei's CocoonJS has already successfully deployed various working and functioning third party HTML5 games on both Google Play and the App store with many more titles to come.
CocoonJS becomes the first mobile gaming platform that allows Scirra's Construct 2 developers to easily deploy, accelerate, and monetize their HTML5 desktop games on iOS and Android.
"The combination of CocoonJS, Construct 2 and HTML5 gives developers an amazingly powerful way to have their games on iOS and Android running smoothly," said Ashley Gullen, Director of Scirra.
"We are thrilled that CocoonJS will be an important part of Scirra's plan to make Construct 2 an even better tool for HTML5 game development," said Eneko Knorr, founder of Ludei. "Developers choose CocoonJS because it's the only HTML5 platform with full iOS and Android support that can run native-like games and now, with CocoonJS and Construct 2, developers get a faster, and easier, path to bringing their games to market to compete with native games."
CocoonJS is a technology that allows HTML5 developers to deploy their games on mobile devices as native applications. Using CocoonJS, the overall performance of the app is accelerated, main issues that HTML5 mobile apps have to face are solved and vital new features are provided, like access to monetization channels using ads and in-app purchases, analytics, local and remote push notifications and more. The promise of HTML5 cross-platform development finally comes true with CocoonJS.
