Sprite Animation libraries


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Hopefully you'll be able to help me out, I've recently been working on a HTML game which features a fair bit of sprite sheet animation. 


The game itself has to run on non-HTML5 browsers so I'm running everything on the DOM, because of this and the heavy sprite sheet animation, I've been looking for a decent sprite animation library. So far in development I've used Spritely (http://www.spritely.net/) to handle everything, however I have encountered multiple issues which have required me to spend excess time changing the base classes to work in the way I need. 


I've had a look around for alternatives and without having to rely on Canvas, there doesn't seem to be much about. It seems such an important area of HTML game development that I think i must of missed some of the alternatives. Does anyone know of any great, fairly robust, libraries out there?


I also have a fair bit of experience using the Sparrow & Starling frameworks, which has a great sprite sheet handler, so I guess that's what I'm setting my expectations against.


Apologies if this has already been discussed on this forum, but it would be great to hear all of your opinions on the better libraries and the pitfalls to avoid when it comes to dealing with large animations on the DOM.


Thanks in advance,
