Hi Trevor,

Can you please share the code snippet you are having trouble with? I would be able to better assist you if I could see the exact code.

But here's something to try.

In the function call, where you load the sprites, make sure you are not putting quotes around the numbers. That could be the reason they are turning green (due to Workspace's syntax highlighting). The spritesheet function requires numbers for the sizes, but adding quotes converts those values into strings.

The following code should work.

game.load.spritesheet('poison', 'poison.png', 32, 32);
game.load.spritesheet('star', 'star.png', 32, 32);

Hope this helps.
