Phaser. Game

new Game(width, height, renderer, parent, state, transparent, antialias, physicsConfig)

This is where the magic happens. The Game object is the heart of your game, providing quick access to common functions and handling the boot process.

"Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something." Thomas A. Edison

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
width number | string <optional>
800

The width of your game in game pixels. If given as a string the value must be between 0 and 100 and will be used as the percentage width of the parent container, or the browser window if no parent is given.

height number | string <optional>
600

The height of your game in game pixels. If given as a string the value must be between 0 and 100 and will be used as the percentage height of the parent container, or the browser window if no parent is given.

renderer number <optional>
Phaser.AUTO

Which renderer to use: Phaser.AUTO will auto-detect, Phaser.WEBGL, Phaser.CANVAS or Phaser.HEADLESS (no rendering at all).

parent string | HTMLElement <optional>
''

The DOM element into which this games canvas will be injected. Either a DOM ID (string) or the element itself.

state object <optional>
null

The default state object. A object consisting of Phaser.State functions (preload, create, update, render) or null.

transparent boolean <optional>
false

Use a transparent canvas background or not.

antialias boolean <optional>
true

Draw all image textures anti-aliased or not. The default is for smooth textures, but disable if your game features pixel art.

physicsConfig object <optional>
null

A physics configuration object to pass to the Physics world on creation.

<internal> updateRender(elapsedTime)

Runs the Render cycle. It starts by calling State.preRender. In here you can do any last minute adjustments of display objects as required. It then calls the renderer, which renders the entire display list, starting from the Stage object and working down. It then calls plugin.render on any loaded plugins, in the order in which they were enabled. After this State.render is called. Any rendering that happens here will take place on-top of the display list. Finally plugin.postRender is called on any loaded plugins, in the order in which they were enabled. This method is called automatically by Game.update, you don't need to call it directly. Should you wish to have fine-grained control over when Phaser renders then use the Game.lockRender boolean. Phaser will only render when this boolean is false.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
elapsedTime number

The time elapsed since the last update.
