Building a game without sprites


Recommended Posts


I just started out with Phaser and am trying to build a little "mouse shoot on targets" game.

Those targets are just Phaser.Circle objects and i have drawn them on the canvas with graphics on the same place.

The problem:

since those circle objects aren't display objects (i.e. sprites) i can't add them to groups. which makes it harder for me to put mouse click handlers on them. 

basically everything i do feels like a huge workaround without sprites. 

Initially i didn't want to use sprites, because of the missing textures. i just wanted them to draw in a plain color. 


I saw this game http://phaser.io/news/2015/08/zero

which looks like it doesn't use sprites either. rather geometry objects.

am i wrong? 


do i have to have a texture for a sprite?

is it insanely stupid to avoid sprites for my kind of game?

Woah, is that sixteen colors from the Create class the exact same sixteen I'm using for my game? Is this palette more popular than I thought?


That's awesome, now I can just easily add an emblem creator and have it match the colors I'm using.


Arne's 16 colour palette is pretty popular with pixel artists, yes.
