I’m looking for a method that is support my HTML5 quiz game and I’m a
fresher for game programming. I would like to know if it is the best
Free HTML5 Engine that suits with a multiplayer quiz game? it also
should handle servers and the questions should be stored in a

Sounds like you should check out Construct2.
No programming needed. It runs on visual input, and then compiles it
Best HTML5 engine out there imo. 2D anyways.
If you have the game assets you could make that quiz in 2 hours.
I’d agree with the recommendation of Construct 2, but it doesn’t provide
multi-player functionality out-of-the-box, which would require you to
simple SDK, but you might have to spend some time learning first. There
are a few different people working on plug-ins for multi-player, but
last I checked there wasn’t anything production-ready yet. You would
also need to implement your server-side logic, and although there’s a
free edition it doesn’t allow commercial development – personal
licences are relatively cheap though.
That being said, I don’t know of anything that more directly supports
your needs, although you could consider a combination of
node.js for server side logic,
nowjs to simplify communication between your server
and client-side, and any library you’re comfortable with for the
front-end – some popular choices include
melonJS, and Crafty
– or as mentioned above you could use Construct 2’s plug-in SDK to
connect to your server-side logic.
You said you’re “a fresher” to programming, but do you have any
experience or are you starting completely from scratch?
I think for a quiz, maybe Jquery. I haven’t used it, just seen posts
about it. I don’t think you need html5 so much as Ajax, so you don’t
have to do a complete page refresh after a post. Not really a web guy,
As far as html5 game engines, I think Impact looks really good, but
costs 100 dollars. EaselJS also looks good and is open source.
That’s true, depending on the complexity and the sort of animations
you’re after you could do the client-side with regular HTML, some fairly
refresh, and a library such as jQuery or MooTools would be a great help
with that. Again you would still need your server-side work though.
