Yes , you can develop games through JavaScript. And for making it into android app you can use this thread post by Krishna Teja Sir. C# with Unity is best for making android games.And JavaScript can also be best for developing games.

Js games are surprisingly simple to make given you have an understanding of basic algebra and trigonometric functions. I made one not long ago it was fun.

Unity Engine support C# and UnityScript as scripting languages. UnityScript is very similar to JavaScript.

As other users said, you can convert your JS to anything else that works on PC, smartphone and tablets, often w/h huge performance limitations but since Javascript is built to run on browsers, i recommend to check this video out from minute 22:58 to 27:05, something great is happening in the JS world and maybe in a few years we will be able to play high quality games enjoying the same experience of console/desktop games... i'm too optimistic though.

Yes, you can develop games in javascript. If you use unity to make a game, it will also be cross-platform and javascript used will be called unityscript which is slightly different from original language.

JavaScript adds interactivity in websites, if interactivity is a huge portion of games, JavaScript can make games.

Yes, there is a game engine called Unity which supports both C# and javascript (unity script) for scripting purposes. Unity is beginner friendly and super fun to start with. With options available to build your game to almost every platform including consoles, phones, VR, AR, ebook readers etc. Get Unity here:

Aftab Shaikh yes you can learn JavaScript for making apps but with Html and Css intermixed with them. But I will recommend Java and Kotlin for developing android apps. Else these links and threads can help you which are provided by honorable Krishna Teja Sir. C# with Unity is best for making android games.And JavaScript can also be best for developing games.
