From the Tales - Told & Untold blog: "While there are several TileMap tutorials for Phaser out there, I didn't find any using Phaser 2.3 with the P2 physics.

In phaser we will display the background and foreground layer, but use the invisible collision layer for collision. We will use P2 physics, as some comments suggest that this physic works best with tilemaps."
