  • Hello, I just found about Construct few days ago, and I'm trying to make a game that look like this "", I got a problem in changing the snake direction to the coordinate of the touch input. So far I'm trying to give the snake head a bullet behavior and try to change it's direction by changing the snake head's vector X upon a touch input. But I don't know how to make it only turn left or right depending on the angle of where I touch the screen compared to the snake head.

    For example, I'd refer to my drawing here

    Any kind of help will be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

  • You can put two invisible sprites - one on the left and one on the right side of the screen.

    On touched LeftSprite 
    -> Snake set Angle of Motion to (Snake.Bullet.AngleOfMotion-90)
    On touched RightSprite 
    -> Snake set Angle of Motion to (Snake.Bullet.AngleOfMotion+90)
