check if any sprite exists at x,y coordinates

Recommended Posts

Hi, very simple newbie question again sorry.   I need to check if a sprite (or, any sprite at all) exists at x/y coordinates within the game.  The reason I want to check is when I spawn a sprite I want it to be within a free space instead of on top of an existing sprite.  Any ideas?


So something like this:

If (game.spriteExistsAt(150,380)==false) {   // there's nothing there, spawn a sprite}

there is a checkhit function that checks at given x,y coordinates for a physics body and returns an array of bodies..
