Make one function for all the states


Recommended Posts

Hi all, so i'm new in phaser, i've started learning it by making a project, so i have a problem :


I have more than one level for example 10 levels each one has it's own state, so the problem i don't want to make every time the same update function and other functions for every state.


So is there any way to make one function for all the 10 state ?


And thank's :)

Use object inheritance using Object.create http://blog.etianen.com/blog/2013/05/26/javascript-inheritance/. or use mixins, decorators etc, Phaser has no built in solution for this, you need to roll your own. Also check out my post about structuring States http://www.sitepoint.com/javascript-game-programming-using-phaser/.

I had the same problem and did also choose the inheritance method.

Here's some code that could help:


The main Level "class" all Levels inherit from:




There i got some "parentCreate" and "parentUpdate" etc. function which are called by the child Level classes e.g.



Here you see e.g. in line 21

BasicGame.Level_2.prototype.update = function () {  this.parentUpdate();

and after the update, all other functions for this specific level are called


hope this helps :)
