Let's summarize what you've learned about basic programming concepts and looks at other ways you can improve the game.
Ideas to improve the program
- Use a different sprite for the player — there's a
mikethefrog.pnggraphic you can use. It's 32 pixels tall and each frame is 32 pixel wide.
- Add a life counter. Instead of simply losing points when the player runs into a bottle of poison, why not start the game with 3 lives? Each time the player hits a bottle of poision they lose one life; at 0 lives the game is over.

Downloading and Running the Project Files
Because of how the Phaser.JS library handles files, you need to be running a web server locally to view a working copy of this project. You can't just open the index.html file in your web browser as you might a basic HTML page. There are several simple ways to get a web server up and running on your computer:
- The Web Server for Chrome is an easy-to-install extension for Chrome that lets you select a folder on your computer (like the folder with the game files in them) and deliver them through a basic web server. This is probably the easiest way to get started — but you'll need to use the Chrome web browser.
- If you don't want to use Chrome, check out a simple guide for getting a local web server set up for several other methods.
