HTML5 Games with Construct 2

  1. 1. HTML5 App & GameCreationUsing Construct 2
  2. 2. What is Construct 2?Construct 2 is a powerful ground breaking HTML5 game creator designedspecifically for 2D games. It allows anyone to build games — no codingrequired!Construct doesnt stop at just being a game maker. With the cross platformpower of HTML5, Construct 2 allows you to export your projects to a variety ofplatforms. Some included:● Windows 8● Windows Phone 8● Blackberry 10● Tizen● Chrome● Windows EXE● CocoonJS (To wrap your games into native Droid and iOS apps)● and more.
  3. 3. Who can use Construct 2?Indies and Hobbyists:Use Construct 2 to enter the world of game creation.Teachers and Students:Teach the principles of programming in a fun and engaging way.Designers and Artists:Produce games without having to learn difficult languages.Professional Developers:Rapidly create mockups and prototypes, or use it as a faster alternative tocoding.Internet Marketers:Quickly create mobile applications for your products and Niches
  4. 4. Quick & EasyBring your work to life in hours and days instead of weeks and months. WithConstruct 2 making games is a piece of cake: just drag and drop objectsaround, add behaviors to them, and make everything come alive with events!With a quick and easy to grasp Ribbon interface, you have clear access to awide set of tools that allows anyone to jump into game creation with little to noprior game development knowledge.
  5. 5. Quick & EasyThe Layout Editor provides a what-you-see-is-what-you-get visual interface todesign your levels. You can drag, rotate and resize objects, visualize effectsapplied, and quickly change their settings to your liking in the Properties Bar.Objects can be arranged on separate layers for enhanced organization,allowing advanced parallax and blending effects. Theres also a built-in imageeditor to conveniently make quick edits to your objects graphics.Within minutes or hours you canhave a working prototype that youcan share with friends to play. Inalmost no time you can test yourideas and know if they are reallyfun or not, focusing your efforts inwhat matters the most: designingyour game!
  6. 6. Powerful Event SystemMake your game do what it needs to do in a visual and human readable waywith the powerful Event System. There’s no need to memorize complicated andcryptic languages. With events programming becomes intuitive putting yourfocus on what really matters: designing your game!Events are created by selectingpossible conditions and actionsfrom an organized list. The resultlist of events, or Event Sheet, isdesigned to be as easily readableas possible, so that beginners canget instant results as well. Entireevent sheets can be re-used byother levels, saving you re-creating events for other levels.
  7. 7. Powerful Event SystemCreating the events you need for your game is rather intuitive. Just choose theright object, select a condition or action, and add it to the event. Construct 2helps you to learn how to think in a logical way and understand realprogramming concepts, making it easy for you if you decide to learn aprogramming language later.Groups can be used to enable/disablemultiple events at once, and fororganisation in large projects. Advancedevent logic such as OR blocks, sub-events, local variables and recursivefunctions allow for sophisticated systemsto be programmed without learning acomparatively more difficult programminglanguage.Each event sheet has a list of events, which contain conditional statements ortriggers.Once these are met, actions or functions can be carried out.
  8. 8. Flexible BehaviorsBehaviors work as pre-packaged functions that you can assign to objects andreuse whenever needed. They provide an instant way to add capabilities toobjects, speeding up development and increasing productivity.They include movements such as 8 directions, platform, and car; advancedfeatures like physics and pathfinding; and useful utilities like fade, flash, wrap,pin and drag & drop.
  9. 9. Flexible BehaviorsMost behaviors can be replicated with events, but it simply is far more timeconsuming to do so. That’s why behaviors can be great time savers, withoutlimiting whats possible when you need to go further.For example, adding the Platform Behavior to a sprite allows you toimmediately run and jump along objects marked as solid. You can thenchange the settings for speed, acceleration, jump strength, gravity, and more,until it’s behaving exactly the way you need.Because of their ease of use they aregreat for beginners, who can get instantresults. And they still make life easierfor experienced users. For example,need an object to move and rotate withanother object? Just add the Pinbehavior! It literally only takes seconds,and all complications are removed.
  10. 10. Stunning Visual EffectsLet your games go from good to gorgeous using C2’s blend modes, effects andparticle system.There are over 70 WebGL-based pixel shader effects to warp, distort, blend,blur, mask, re-color and more. You can add these to objects, layers and layoutsfor quick special effects and also stack them up to create incredible results. Youcan even see everything applied in real time in the editor!
  11. 11. Stunning Visual EffectsConstruct 2 also allows you to setup fall backs to when effects support is notavailable, ensuring that players get the best possible experience out of yourgame. For example, a Screen WebGL effect can be replaced by an Additiveblend mode when the players computer does not support it, preserving theplayer experience as best as possible on a range of hardware and systemsetups.Another great feature is the Particlesplugin. It works by creating andmoving many small imagesindependently, easily generatingsprays of sparkles, smoke, water,debris, and whatever more yourimagination can create. It’s a reallyversatile object capable of manydifferent kinds of visual effects.
  12. 12. Multiplatform ExportPublish your games on a broad selection of platforms with a single project.There’s no need to maintain multiple codebases. By using Construct 2sHTML5-based engine you can export to most major platforms.Easily reach the web by publishing to your own website, Chrome Web Store,Facebook, Kongregate, NewGrounds, Firefox Marketplace or use our ScirraArcade to share your creations. Export your game to desktop PC, Mac andLinux apps by using the Node-Webkit wrapper. Additionally publish to Windows8 Store or as a native Windows Phone 8 app.You can also reach the popular iOS andAndroid app stores using wrappers likeCocoonJS, appMobi and PhoneGap — allthree with built-in support.With extensive platform support you canrest assured that players will have access toyour game no matter where they are.
