Description

Have you heard of AdGames? If you haven't you soon will. AdGames are one of the most innovative forms of advertising around. This course is a crash course that covers what AdGames are and how to make them. In this course you start out with nothing and you end up with an AdGame you can put on your website. The best part about this is that the engine we are using is a visual programming engine so that means you don't have to write a single line of code. That's right you can make an HTML 5 AdGame for your webiste without writing a single line of code.
