Hey fellow Constructors
Google failed me, but I need some help. Can you list for me all the standard 2d game genres out there.
I know game genres can fit into both 2d or 3d interchangeably but the reason I'm asking is because, I'm ashamed to say but I didn't even know about "Tower Defense games" until a few days ago. Now I'm in love with them, like crazy!
I don't really care about "Massive Online Battle Arenas" at this stage. I'm more interested in another new game I've just seen today: Nuclear Throne". What Genre is that, is it a shooter or action game or what.
When I bought my Construct if you'd told me I would end up thinking of making a Tower Defense game, I wouldn't have understood what you're talking about. When I tried Googling "2d game Genres" I kept getting Vainglory, Call of Duty and all the big stuff. Did I mention Vainglory? I love that game, despite all my dying. Anyway:
Can anyone kindly help me with examples I can mimic.
Genre examples like:
1. Platformer = Super Mario
2. Tower Defense = Kingdom Rush
I'd really appreciate it, cause it will help me make informed decisions on what my 1st game can be like. I want to make it simple and 'finishable' to make (yeah.. it's now officially a word).
