Make HTML5 Games

Make HTML5 Games - No Programming Required

Construct 2 is the follow up from Scirra's Construct Classic which has had around 500,000 downloads to date. Construct 2 allows people to make game in an intuitive and visual way. Scirra's ambition is to make Construct 2 better, more stable and more powerful than Construct Classic. Construct 2 is based on years of experience developing Construct Classic.

Export to HTML5

Construct 2 initially only exports to HTML5, but more export formats are going to be supported in the future such as EXE and possibly native mobile applications. Construct 2 is mainly for 2D game development. It aims to open the doors of game making to everyone by presenting making games in a visual and intuitive way.

HTML5 Demos

Scirra has released a couple of fully playable and functional HTML5 demos. The project files for these demos can also be downloaded and experimented with.

Construct 2 Versions

There are currently three versions of Construct 2, the free edition, the standard early adopter and the business early adopter. The free version comes bundled with free music, sound effects, ambient sounds and animated sprites. The paid editions release a few restrictions the free version places and also come with far more resources to use in your games.

Learning Resources

Scirra's website has lots of tutorials and their forum is very active.

Background

Holiday Trouble is based on the classic "wire loop" or "steady hand" game, where you move metal ring through electrified wire. If you touch the wire, a buzz or light turns on.

I wanted my game to have some background story, so instead of creating game exactly like original one, i had an idea of a float that is tangled with rope. And as summer has arrived finally here in Finland, this theme was spot on.

How it's made

Game is made with Construct 2, the game maker tool that's kind of overlooked among developers. But Construct is good tool and it's not the tool or engine that matters, it's about you how you master it and workaround it's limitations. And that apply's to every engine or tool out there, they all have limitations.

So basically game is constructed from two separate sides of the float, bottom float bottom and top float top .

Each level is constructed with rope "sections" instead of one big rope sprite, that covers whole level.

rope9rope4


That was crucial as HTML5 games need to be smallest size possible, because they are played on both Mobile and Desktop browser AND not everybody in world have high speed internet connections, so game has to load quickly for them also. And it saves money for some as only small amount of data is transferred.

Game is deigned to be playable both on mobile and desktop, so one finger / mouse control was only option and i wanted the gameplay to be same on both devices. That's why there's no thumbstick on mobile or keyboard control on desktop.

Designing levels was bit tricky, because on mobile when you move your finger to certain direction, your hand covers the float, so you can't see where it's going. I had to avoid using tricky rope parts when move direction was not optimal for mobile use.

There's a "ghost" medal, that shows your best effort in each level, so as you play you chase your ghost.

Hello All.
Somebody should update the "Platforms" supported by the engine.
I add a game in SlideDB and the was no construct 2 option because there no Android support for it.
Please update :)

Okay, ever since the little trail that resulted from my first comment -- I take no issue with Construct 2, it just sort of came out of nowhere (at least for me). I hope you guys succeed with it, and maybe even manage to get within the realm of 3D games.

I'm still going to be using Construct Classic, but I wish you guys all the best.

Correct me if I'm wrong -- but wasn't Construct made to be an open source engine?

Construct and Construct 2 are not the same thing.

We have Construct Classic, and open source game making engine.

We have since written a new engine from the ground up, Construct 2, which isn't open source.

They are both very distinct.

They probably thought they could change that by adding a "2" at the end :c

We added a 2 to the end because it's our second game engine! They are not the same product.

You are a ******* idiot. Construct 1 was mostly in c++ and this is now in html5 and javascript (making it web compatible). So basically its a whole new engine.

Construct 1 is still FREE and OPEN-SOURCE .... so i don't see the big hoey about the fact that they want to make a profit out of a new web compatible version .

Exactly , at least people can still use the open source one for free and commercial use , The second one is more for web-use , i don't like web games :(
