Games Physics: Basics and Implementation of Predictive (or Continuous) Collision Detection

Few days ago, I wrote a post about why time based animations are better than frame based animations. However, in animations done as a function of time, some serious problems could arise. One of them is that your regular collision detection techniques might fail if the frame rate is lower than acceptable. Your object might pass through the walls or even fall through the floor!

Basics of Implementing Gravity with HTML5 Canvas

Gravity

When creating some canvas experiments like a particle emission system or a game,¬†gravity can be a key feature to implement. Figuring out how to implement gravity on an object in terms of coding can be a bit confusing. We’ll try to comprehend it, by putting it into code in a simplified manner. I liek simplicity!
