Easily reverse engineer spritesheets with this tool! Get your sprites back as single standalone images. So you're a game developer who lost the source images for your sprite sheet; it's not a crime and you don't have to panic.

Don't try to slice those sprites out in an image editor, extract them with this tool! Just drag and drop your spritesheet onto the window and its .plist file. Hit the save button and in a few short seconds you will get your sprites back! If you have rotated sprites in your sheet this app even rotates them back so you get your sprites out of your sheet exactly the same way that you put them in!

More great reasons to use this tool:
-Extract individual sprites out of an old spritesheet so you can use Spritebuilder's smart spritesheet feature for your Cocos2d game!
-Extract individual sprites out of an old spritesheet to use in a .atlas file in Xcode for your SpriteKit game!

The Reverse Engineer Spritesheets app will save you tons of time!

This app currently supports extracting sprites with a spritesheet's .plist source file. Plist formats 0, 1, 2, 3 are supported! PNG sprite sheet images and pvr.czz images are supported!

Just what I needed

simple to use and to the point. It extracted my images.

OK, but had problems

I tried this app on the on the pd_sprites.plist (version 1.0 plist) included in the “PompaDroid” tutorial by Allen Tan, but the sprites did not split properly. A few of the resulting images had a portion of one sprite and a portion of another unrelated sprite. Otherwise, this app is very easy to use and could hardly be simpler.
