Looking for Phaser 2 / CE?

Which file should I download?

Familiar with git? Use the "clone" link to get the whole repo. The "js" and "min.js" links download pre-built versions of Phaser with all modules enabled. The zip and tar links download an archive of the repository. If you're just doing a quick test then it's safe to grab the js files, however it's always worth having the source code to hand for reference.

What's New in 3.52.0?

Version 3.52.0 - Crusch - 14th January 2021

New Features

  • The getPostPipeline method available on most Game Objects will now return an array of piplines if an instance is given and the Game Object has more than one of those pipelines set on it. If only one pipeline is set, it will be returned directly.


  • BaseCamera.renderList is a new array that is populated with all Game Objects that the camera has rendered in the current frame. It is automatically cleared during Camera.preUpdate and is an accurate representation of the Game Objects the Camera rendered. It's used internally by the Input Plugin, but exposed should you wish to read the contents or use it for profiling.
  • BaseCamera.addToRenderList is a new method that will add the given Game Object to the Cameras current render list.
  • The InputPlugin.sortGameObjects method now uses the new Camera render list to work out the display index depths.
  • The InputPlugin.sortDropZones method is a new method, based on the old sortGameObjects method that is used for sorting input enabled drop zones.
  • The background color behind the game url in the banner is now transparent, so it looks correct with dark dev tools themes (thanks @kainage)

Bug Fixes

  • WebAudioSound.destroy now checks to see if pannerNode exists before disabling it, preventing an error in Safari (thanks @jdcook)
  • Fixed the cause of Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'getIndex' of null by checking the display list property securely. Fix #5489 (thanks @actionmoon)
  • Fixed an issue where adding input-enabled Game Objects to a Layer would have the input system ignore their depth settings. Fix #5483 (thanks @pr4xx)
  • The method TilemapLayer.weightedRandomize has changed so that the parameter weightedIndexes is now first in the method and is non-optional. Previously, it was the 5th parameter and incorrectly flagged as optional. This change was made to the docs but not the parameters, but now works according to the docs (thanks Fantasix)
  • The Mesh GenerateVerts function was returning an object with the property verts instead of vertices as expected by the Mesh.addVertices method. It now returns the correct name (thanks @lackhand)
  • AtlasJSONFile will now call File.pendingDestroy, clearing up the resources it used during load and emitting a missing FILE_COMPLETE event. Fix #5495 (thanks @mikuso)
  • AtlasJSONFile, AtlasXMLFile, BitmapFontFile and UnityAtlasFile will now call File.pendingDestroy, clearing up the resources it used during load and emiting a missing FILE_COMPLETE event. Fix #5495 (thanks @mikuso)
  • Some Bitmap Text fonts were not rendering under Canvas due to the way in which the texture offset was calculated. It now uses the __BASE frame to get the texture offset, rather than the first frame in the set. Fix #5462 #5501 (thanks @monteiz @DPMakerQB)
