Constructor

Phaser. Mouse

new Mouse(game)

The Mouse class is responsible for handling all aspects of mouse interaction with the browser.

It captures and processes mouse events that happen on the game canvas object.
It also adds a single mouseup listener to window which is used to capture the mouse being released
when not over the game.

You should not normally access this class directly, but instead use a Phaser.Pointer object
which normalises all game input for you, including accurate button handling.

Parameters
Name Type Description
game Phaser.Game

A reference to the currently running game.
