Thanks for your response @Jackolantern
Ultimately i'm looking to build something quite like this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByODxxIVtyl9UGg1MWY1THhaMlU
Do you think it's possible to build using something similar using faux 3D ? Any starting tutorial/example would be helpful to start with.
Found this interesting project: https://github.com/Rinirihiriro/dice (2D but looks like 3D) however it's not using Phaser. It'd be interesting to have something similar but using Phaser with physics (velocity, collision, rotation) .
The atlas drawn here: https://github.com/Rinirihiriro/dice/blob/master/dice.png seems very close to 3D.
