Grunt has a number of useful capabilities we will be using later on such as the ability to start a small web server to test our games, automatically compiling our scripts together using Browserify and exporting our finished project in a clean format. The only potential drawback of Grunt is that every time one goes to work on the project, they will need to open a command prompt in the project root and start the development task before work can begin.

Start(‘preload’); } } This is a simple boot state that can be used to scaffold more complex ones later on. A single class is exposed from this file, which contains Phaser preload and create methods. The preload gets an image ready to show as the loading screen for the next state, the preloading state. Once that bar is loaded, the create method restricts this game to one finger or mouse interaction and moves onto the preload state. js multitouch interaction, removing or at least upping the number on the maximum pointers line will be necessary.
