I like Pixi.js, as game engine. it has very good tutorials how to use it.

melonjs looks also good. you also know what kind of game you want to make.

then, brfore coding it is a good idea to think of a rough datastructure. #datafirstapproach

once i read, a good game idea has to fit on the back of calling card. there is space for a short sentence.

What about you take a game you like and add a twist to it, like: The game Should be like baloons tower defense, but with cakes.

i promise you, even dough you try to copy a game in the first place, along the way of development you will have plenty of ideas to make it different and better.
