There could be a syntax error. If you share your code perhaps we can help. A great way to do that is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Verify if you named the image correctly. Should be "poison.png"

I think you just forgot to create the name of star . should be something like this:

game.load.spritesheet('star', 'star.png', 32, 32); I hope will help you !

this exact same thing happened to me so I had to save every time I "createItem"
