The answer is Canvas Element, which is used for the purpose of drawing images, shapes, etc. Though it is a useful element, but HTML5 game development is not all about drawing images or shapes, it includes many other things e.g. sprites, animations, physics and a lot more. In order to use the already created frameworks, the programmers are just supposed to write their implementations on the top of the canvas API that already exists. Such frameworks can tackle most of the requirements of a game developer.
The developers can rely on the following popular game engines for the sake of executing HTML5 game development:
• EaselJS • Turbulence • ImpactJS • Three.js • Crafty
