Part 1: Seting up the project

Construct 2 has some features that are awesome and that are sometimes forgotten.


Families are a great tool. It gives you the opportunity to manage many objects together as one greater group.

(However, I recommand using sprites for walls, and floors instead of tiled backgrounds like Scirra did in the default exemple)

Put every Tiled solid platform in "TiledSolid"

Same thing for Jump trough platforms in "Jumpthru"
