Is it possible to build educational JS games

How much skill would I have to need to make this? Would I need to know languages other than HTML, CSS and Javascript?

Which tech-degree would be more helpful Front End Development or Full stack Java/script?

Thank you for your help :)

Games to teach how to code, or to learn a new language (or both) sound like a wonderful thing. And if you intend to make these games as web pages, having a comfortable familiarity with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript should be sufficient to create them. You might need some additional skills if you wanted to create desktop and/or mobile applications.

Some existing code-teaching games you might want to check out for comparison:

I tried not to list any that have no web versions or are pay-only, but there are several of those, too.

Also, I won't list them individually here, but this resource has reviews of 10 web sites that use puzzles or riddles to help teach programming.
