When you download the game assets from Kenny's site all the assets are individual png images, is it OK to use them individually or is there an advantage to having them all on one sprite sheet?

    Using them as a sprite sheet is better for performance as the GPU only needs to reference one large image instead of a lot of smaller images. It improves rendering performance through reduced draw calls. Think about having to load one large image versus loading multiple images to play your game.
