I am making a simple RPG game, where lots of stats is displayed on the left side of the screen (using ig.Font),
and I just noticed that each letter on the font is using 1 drawcall.

font.draw( 'Some text',0, 0, ig.Font.ALIGN.RIGHT ); = 9 drawcalls

Is this gonna affect the performance by much ?

Should we limit the use of ig.Font especially on the game screen where lots of things happening ?
(maybe using it sparingly only in inventory screen etc..? )

any thought on this ?

If you're developing for mobile platforms, yes, you probably should limit the amount of text you draw, or cache text strings that don't change in an offscreen canvas.

It isn't such a big issue for desktop browsers though. Case in point: Z-Type.
