Can you make a tile with animation?

I've made a start screen, and I've decided I should animate it as it doesn't look great otherwise. However, I'm not sure how to get all of the tiles animated, or otherwise animate it without having to make the while thing one massive tile, and then replace the the old tiles with the ones next in the animation. are animated tiles possible or is there some other way to animate the background?

    No, Animated tiles is not possible, however it has been requested a lot so it might happen at some point. What you could do is to figure out how much of the start screen you want animated, anything that's not part of the animation will be part of a cutout static image, the animated part will then be placed on top of your static image, where the animation is intended in the game engine.

    Otherwise just make it one huge sprite-sheet.
