Having established that, let's see what Impact does. Well, for starters, it can compile games that will run on all HTML5 capable browsers, including those of the iOS and Android devices.

Now, as I did have a couple of developer friends play around a bit with Impact. I'm happy to report they both found it to be a powerful tool that, at times, impressed them. Both thought its environment was very efficient too, so I do suppose that should be quite an endorsement. As for me, well, I did manage to install the thing without breaking anything on my local PHP server.
