Time passed, and the software became a robust development tool for Phaser, and the latest release is entirely web based.
This means you can build a complete HTML5 game just with a web browser.
And we aren’t talking about a limited drag and drop tool, but a complete IDE with all the features you can expect.
The games are powered by the popular Phaser v3 framework, and no extra runtime is required for your game.
It was very easy to build a new version of “Block it” game
The visual editor can be used to layout the game levels and screens, saving reusable objects as prefabs to save time.
I recommend to use the “Dark Plus” theme which uses a really clean and modern color scheme.
Each image you add to the scene generates Phaser 3 code you can edit to add features: it’s fully compatible with Visual Studio Code.
This way you can combine the ease of use of drag and drop design with the full power of scripting.
The script editor has everything you need, from syntax highlighting to every kind of hint you may need to write clean and optimized code.
You don’t even need a local server to test your game: everything is managed in the cloud, and once you completed your game, you just have to click a button to download the zipped archive.
This is the game I built with Phaser Editor 2D:
Tap or click to start and to activate the lower wall and make the ball bounce.
Don’t let the ball fall down or it’s game over.
As usual, I tested Phaser Editor by building a complete working prototype and it was really easy, you can look at the source code of the complete project to see how IDE generated code is perfectly integrated with my custom scripts.
The web based IDE is really a great feature because it allows you to edit your projects on any computer, as long as you have an active internet connection.
If you want to try the editor, it’s free with all features enabled, just with some project size limitations, then you can get a license from as low as less than $2 per month, or a lifetime license for $75.
I really suggest you to give a try to Phaser Editor, you won’t be disappointed.
