How much bandwidth does an HTML5 game use?

fogartyfogarty Posts: 181Member, PRO

I plan to put an HTML5 GameSalad game on my website, and I have two questions actually:

1) Does anyone know whether HTML5 games use a lot of bandwidth?

2) Do you know if a lot of concurrent users will slow down an HTML5 game?

Thanks in advance!

    It depends on your game. We're not streaming the games or anything, so it's not a constant use of bandwidth. We just load up the resources we need when a scene is loaded.

    Since the games aren't multiplayer, concurrent users won't slow the game itself, but it might slow loading of the game if your server is maxed out.

    We just server our arcade games off Cloudflare backed by S3 and that works fine.
