Top-Down Games with Tiled

Article by Richard Davey. Posted on 28th Aug 2014.   @phaser_

Another fine GameDev Academy tutorial.

"In this tutorial we’ll create a basic template you can use to make your own top-down games using Phaser, an awesome HTML5 game framework.

This template will be expanded in further tutorials to add the ability to move between levels, work on mobile and more cool stuff. If there are aspects you’d like me to cover in future tutorials feel free to post that on the comments!

We’ll be using a free map editor called Tiled to create our level. One nice thing about Phaser is that you can easily load map files exported from Tiled (JSON format).

This tutorial builds on top of the concepts covered in our previous Phaser tutorial, so if you are not familiar with States, preloading assets and rendering sprites you might want to check that tut first."
