Use JavaScript to build a simple 2 player 2D top-down game, where players race to collect coins while avoiding obstacles and enemies. This intro to JavaScript has 10 short lessons with 5 tasks in each. In these lessons you'll build a quiz app and learn important coding concepts for building apps and games. In this course you'll learn basic HTML and CSS as you create 2 web pages to add to the Code Avengers Wiki Jr, a version of Wikipedia for children.
