That way you can also see clearly in the code which object gets called when: -(void) update:(ccTime)delta { [inputHandler update:delta]; [player update:delta]; [enemies update:delta]; [physics update:delta]; [networkData update:delta]; [userInterface update:delta]; } A positive benefit of this approach is that it makes selectively pausing certain objects easier.
