Which Choose: Construct 3 or Construct 2

  • Hi. My name is Vini and Im new in this forum and generally in game making.

    I seen, before Construct 2, and after Construct 3. Both interesting. But, now, Im very confuse and I dont know which is better to buy.

    I want create game for mobile and desktop.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks!

  • Try the free versions of each to see how you like them. You can also read the blog, there are posts outlining what’s new in c3.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • i would say C3 is better choice.

    Only downside is that C3 does not have much custom plugins yet... but that will change in time.

  • Hi. Thanks for your help! But I dont understand which are important differences between C2 and C3 in terms of final result. I know main difference, C2 is software installed and C3 online application.

    Can I create same quality games or C3 is better about performance and features?

    About mobile games, C2 or C3 is better?

    Sorry for my confusion, but I need be sure before buy and learn, so to avoid to waste precious time.

    Thanks!

  • I would suggest you take R0J0Hound's suggestion.

    If you can't be bothered to properly research a product by yourself, but are willing to rely on the subjective opinion of people you've never met, then IMO, you have already made a bad decision.

    I personally can spend many weeks researching something I'm interested in buying.

  • Hi zenox98, you are right.

    Its better test myself both applications, so to understand in first person what is better for my goal.

    Thanks mate

  • "Construct "&choose(2,3)

  • The creators want you to choose C3

  • You decide:

    C3 editor has lots of new features and tools, but there is almost nothing new that you can add to the final game. So no, you can't make a better game in C3, comparing to C2.

    C3 can export for mobile, but as I understand, it only works for selected platforms.

    C3 is still a fairly young software and there are lots of bugs and problems with it.

    Many popular C2 plugins have not been ported to C3 yet.

    C2 will not be getting any new feature updates, only bug fixes.

  • Unless Construct 3 has some real bugs that will prevent you from making the game you want, go for Construct 3. That is where future of Construct lies.

    But, right now it does not help you make better games, that is why I'm still on Construct 2. No need to switch to 3. ( hey, like I've said before, make my life easier by adding a working adsense or adsense for games plugin and you have my $99, by the way an experienced javascripter could code that in 2 days, so really what's the holdup? )

    Trying those free versions is always a good idea, but considering their limitations I doubt you will be able to tell the difference ( other than the general feel of each ) . You can't really find major bugs until you have a fairly large project and start exporting things.

  • Thank you very much for your help. I'm trying both. This week I will choose which buy.

  • If you choose to buy C2, better hurry! There's a price increase coming on March 12th: https://www.scirra.com/blog/222/constru ... 12th-march

    This is GOOD NEWS!!!

    I was really expecting them to give up on C2 shortly after the launch of C3.

    With the price increasing, SURELY they'll implement some long time C2 requests now huh? <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy">

  • Probably not MPPlantOfficial , at least nothing beyond what they were already planning to anyway/what can be ported to C3 "Our focus is to encourage new customers to buy Construct 3 and not Construct 2."
