Did you try the Nintendo DS GTA China Town Wars yet?
I've played 2 minutes and I think it's impressive for a Nintendo DS title.
I wonder how long it took to create everything you see, such as: buildings, fences and other small things. I want a behind-the-scenes look.
One small thing I noticed: when holding down the punch button, it keeps hitting continiously, without stopping. So as long as you hold the button, it keeps boxing with his 2 fists. Even while walking.
Would you also choose for this if you were designing this game?
It's perhaps better than 1 push = 1 hit and easier to implement than a combo-style of fighting.
Or maybe (top-down) gta was just not made for brawling...
As for Construct, is there anything you can think of, that is possible in gta 1, 2 or China Town Wars, which perhaps cannot be done in Construct? (more in terms of gameplay, than graphic-wise)
