Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plus Launch in 2019, No G7 Play!

Earlier this month, we saw the hands on images of the Motorola Moto G7 intends to feature a Waterdrop Display. Now, a new report from MySmartPrice, states that Motorola will unveil the new Moto G Smartphones in 2019.

According to them, the Moto G7 series will include the Moto G7 (Standard) and the Moto G7 Plus. There won't be any Moto G7 Play. This year's Moto G6 Play and Moto E5 Plus were nearly identical, maybe that's why Motorola plans to skip the G7 Play in favor of the E6 Plus.


As seen in the earlier leaks, the Moto G7 will have almost zero sized bezels on either sides. Also, the phone would feature a Waterdrop Notch which can be found in Oppo F9 Pro. Coming to the rear, it would have the dual lens camera setup, fingerprint sensor with Motorola batwing logo. Stay tuned to our FacebookTwitter, and Telegram to get the first News.

The Top 8 JavaScript Game Engines for Game Developers


JavaScript is a great backbone for game development – it’s a fast, efficient, and matured language that is compatible with nearly any device and platform out there. Creating games in JavaScript isn’t as simple as just installing the Java SDK, however – unless you’re some kind of genius coder who can do everything from scratch. For that reason, there’s a lot of JavaScript game engines (also known as frameworks) out there.

It can be difficult to sort through them all and figure out which is the right one for you – and that’s why we’ve went ahead and did the work, so you can easily review this list and find the best JavaScript game engines and frameworks that are suited to your creative needs.

Since Google Chrome ceases its support for Adobe Flash at the end of 2020, some cool browser games such as Run 3 won't be accessible. Therefore, we encourage all youngling game developers to pursue with JavaScript Frameworks.

This list will mostly focus on open-source JavaScript engines and frameworks that have strong community support, but we’ll include a few premium engines as well.

Phaser.js


Phaser.js is often touted as one of, if not the best JavaScript game engine available. It is extremely easy to use, has a ton of documentation and examples to follow, and a highly active community if you need additional help.

Phaser is best used for creating 2D games such as RPGs and side-scrollers. That’s not to say its limited to just sprite-based graphics, however, as Phaser fully supports Canvas and WebGL rendering – which means you can use advanced lighting and post-processing graphics effects in your game.

Babylon.JS

Perhaps the best competitor to Phaser.js, although comparing Babylon.js and Phaser.js is a bit like apples and oranges – sure, they’re both JavaScript game engines, but while Phaser is more geared towards 2D titles, Babylon excels at creating 3D games.

Basically, Babylon.js allows you to build 3D browser games through a combination of WebGL, HTML5, and Web Audio – and while creating even simple 3D objects in WebGL can normally be full of hurdles and JavaScript coding, Babylon really simplifies it all for you.

PlayCanvas WebGL Game Engine

PlayCanvas is a super powerful game engine that uses HTML5 and WebGL to create some really beautiful looking browser games, with a ton of fancy features like physically based rendering, high quality PostFX that includes bloom, edge detection, and really just a ton of other features that make PlayCanvas a seriously powerful game development engine – it can be used for anything from beautiful web presentations to incredibly engaging race games, similar to Getaway Shootout (we use “similar” because it was made in Unity3D) with graphics that rival native applications.

The only drawback is that it isn’t free – you didn’t think all those fancy features would be, did you? PlayCanvas operates on a tiered subscription platform, so while you can use a free account, you’ll gain a lot more feature access if you subscribe to one of their monthly plans.

Pixi.JS


If you need a fast and lightweight JavaScript framework, Pixi.js may be exactly what you need – it uses HTML5 2D rendering combined with WebGL and HTML5 canvas fallback, which means you’ll be able to write games that utilize hardware acceleration with no prior experience in writing for WebGL, and the engine itself is really just incredibly fast.

Crafty

If you’d like an engine that helps you lay out a roadmap for project completion from start to finish, Crafty could be the game engine for you. It uses a handy “components” system that allows you to make a series of choices by choosing various components, which will lay some of the foundation of your game engine – there are also a lot of community-made components available for download.

These components include things like entity hitboxes, level progress bars, tiled map builders, and just a ton of other things you would normally need to code from scratch – think of Crafty like being able to write a game using third-party building blocks, which may not appeal to everyone, but it’s certainly useful – especially for beginning game developers.

MelonJS


Another lightweight and powerful HTML5 framework, MelonJS does its best to provide a plugin-free experience with a focus on its ‘write once, run everywhere’ library. It is a completely standalone library which means it only requires an HTML5-compatible browser to run, and has an entire range of features such as high DPI / auto scaling, multi-channel HTML5 audio, polygon (SAT) based collision detection, a nifty particle system, and just a whole handful of other features.

Kiwi.js


If you’re an absolute beginner and need something that could literally be considered the easiest JavaScript / HTML5 game framework, Kiwi.js could be your best bet. Kiwi.js focuses on fast WebGL rendering, with CocoonJS for publishing and app creation.

Its been called the “Wordpress of HTML5 game engines” because it is really so easy to use, but don’t mistake simplicity for lack of features – Kiwi.js can be just as powerful as many other game engines, its mostly the UI and documentation that makes it so easy to use.

QICI Engine


You could consider QICI Engine as an expansion of Phaser, as it built on top of the Phaser engine – but it utilizes its own interface that focuses entirely on game development within the web browser itself. This means you won’t need to have your code editor, tile mapper, sprite tools, etc all open in separate windows – everything is convenient done within the web browser.

Usually this sort of convenience is earned by sacrificing features or engine flexibility, but not so with QICI – being based on the Phaser engine, it has all the powerful features you’d expect from Phaser, but QICI offers a feature-rich dashboard that really just makes game development so much more convenient and easier.
