Top Five HTML 5 Games

Since launched in October 2014, HTML5 has taken the gaming world to a whole new level. It has become the preferred game development platform since it has support for cross-platform applications and is compatible with Mobile browsers as well. HTML5 has plenty of features that help programmers to develop accelerated graphics for games using the native web code. It has new syntactical elements that will allow developers to seamlessly integrate graphical content and multimedia to the web without using flash or 3rd party plugins.
