Lighting

Cast ominous shadows with advanced lighting effects. Simply define where the light is and add behaviors to objects that cast shadows. You can even preview the result directly in the editor. Alternatively use a range of blend modes, effects and layer compositing features to create other kinds of lighting styles.

Use an almost unlimited supply of web fonts directly in your game, which scale to any size or resolution screen. Alternatively use Spritefonts for hand-drawn multicolor text styles that perfectly suit your game's artwork.
