Animation

JavaScript Canvas Sprite Animation

Sprite sheets have been used in game development for many years. In addition to the fact that all the tiles related to some objects are stored together, in web development it also allows you to reduce the number of requests for downloading many separate images.

I want to share the approach that I used in my games written with canvas and javascript. I think this is a reusable approach for animation different objects on a canvas.

To demonstrate it, I compiled a Sonic sprite sheet from the "Sonic the Hedgehog 3" game.
