    "The gold standard engine for developing browser-based games. Everything just works as documented. This is not for lightweights, so if you're looking for a drag and drop builder or some kind of kiddie interface, look somewhere else. This is fingers on keys developing and coding with a library and you'll still have to do your own storyboard, planning, and creative thinking. Once it's time to crank out code, this is the engine you want."
