Make a HTML5 Platformer with Phaser

However, if you are looking for a free, open source, and actively maintained framework, the list quickly narrows down to just a handful of them. And a lot of people consider Phaser to be the best one. This tutorial will show you how to make the beginning of a 2D platfromer game in HTML5 using the Phaser framework. This tutorial comes from the beginning of the ebook Discover Phaser. Let’s start by creating an empty game. Don’t worry, it will quickly become more interesting. Set Up First we need to create a new directory called “first-game”, where we should add: Announcing Globalize 1.0.

Announcing Globalize 1.0

This release has been a long time coming and as Globalize picks up steam and gains more and more adoption every day, we are proud to finally announce the first stable release of this project. We could go on about the features and benefits of this latest release but we felt it was important that you hear it from the source. Below, Rafael Xavier, the lead for the Globalize project, details everything you need to know about the 1.0 release of Globalize and what is yet to come. Allow me to skip the details and jump to the fun part.

For our purposes here is our cloud platform: It doesn't have to look like an actual cloud of course! CloudPlatform Because we want to have more than just one of these types of platform they are a good candidate for a custom object: CloudPlatform. You pass in the same parameters as if you were defining a normal Sprite.

Here is how we create one: var cloud1 = new CloudPlatform(this.game, 300, 450, 'cloud-platform', this.clouds); So far, so good. AddMotionPath Locking the Player Brain Food. Phaser - Learn - Phaser Coding Tips 7: Creating a Shoot-em-up Tutorial. Welcome!
