  1. In the game "Monster Wants Candy," I see this in the source code, and I was wondering why this was done. I've tried doing this myself but keep failing. This is what I mean: var Candy = {}; Candy.Boot = function(game){}; Candy.Boot.prototype = { preload: function(){ // preload the loading indicator first before anything else this.load.image('preloaderBar', 'img/loading-bar.png'); }, create: function(){ // set scale options this.input.maxPointers = 1; this.scale.scaleMode = Phaser.ScaleManager.SHOW_ALL; this.scale.pageAlignHorizontally = true; this.scale.pageAlignVertically = true; this.scale.setScreenSize(true); // start the Preloader state this.state.start('Preloader'); } }; (source: https://github.com/EnclaveGames/Monster-Wants-Candy-demo/blob/gh-pages/src/Boot.js) var gameWidth = 800, gameHeight = 600; var game = new Phaser.Game(gameWidth, gameHeight, Phaser.AUTO), BootState = function () {}, gameOptions = { playSound: true, playMusic: true }, musicPlayer; BootState.prototype = { preload: function () { this.game.load.image('loadingbar', 'assets/images/loadingbar.png'); this.game.load.image('logo', 'assets/images/logo2.png'); this.game.load.script('LoadState', 'js/gamestates/LoadState.js'); this.game.load.script('pollyfill', 'js/lib/pollyfill.js'); this.game.load.script('utils', 'js/lib/utils.js'); }, create: function () { game.renderer.renderSession.roundPixels = true; Phaser.Canvas.setImageRenderingCrisp(this.game.canvas); this.game.state.add('LoadState', LoadState); this.game.state.start('LoadState'); } }; this.game.state.add('BootState', BootState); this.game.state.start("BootState"); I also note that I don't take "Game" as an argument in my game state functions, unlike Monster Wants Candy which has the argument "game" in it's bootstate. Have I been doing something wrong? I'm following most of the tutorials and example code I've seen so far, though I am aware those may not always be good examples of best practice. Thanks in advance for replies and sorry for the long post. I'm a bit of a JS and Phaser noob, I'm mainly just aiming to learn good practice with this project.
