Today's announcement contained good news for thousands of JavaScript and HTML5 game developers eager to access the iOS and Android markets including:

More than 100 games using CocoonJS are set to launch soon in the iOS and Android app stores, as studios like Lost Decade and Massively Fun in addition to mid-size and big publishers, continue to flock to Ludei to solve their HTML5 development problems.

"We are excited about the commitment of the developer community to use HTML5 to achieve true cross compatibility and superior native-like performance for HTML5 games," said Eneko Knorr, founder of Ludei. "The innovative spirit of our customers is a perfect example of how far the HTML5 industry has come in just the past year."

"The great promise of HTML5 also brings great problems -- performance and deployment being at the top of the list.
