<font size="5">"Construct 2" Is Better Than "GameMaker: Studio"</font>
Just wanted to say thank you to the SCIRRA "Construct 2" team!
I payed over $500 for "GameMaker: Studio" a few months ago.
After several months of tearing out hair from my scalp
I gave up and looked for something much better than "GM:S".
Googling gave no viable results for a replacement to "GM:S".
I recently received a gift card for GameStop and bought a Valve Steam game.
I loaded up Steam to download the new game that I bought
and saw "Construct 2" in the new releases tab.
Did some research on this new "Construct 2" game making IDE.
Most reviews on the Internet were positive so I went ahead and bought "C2".
After about a week using "Construct 2" I must say
it was the best $120 dollars I have spent recently.
I've written my own C++ and HTML5 2D game engines before
from the ground up(100's of pages of typed source code).
The previous games are fairly good, but I always felt I could make something better.
I feel I am a great game designer with below average programming abilities.
I've done in a week with "C2" what would have been impossible before.
I'm making one of my favorite classic arcade games: 1980's "Asteroids".
You can check out my very 1st video game creation with "Construct 2" here:
It's a work in progress and progress is going at a remarkable pace.
So, thank you again for making this incredible game making IDE!
It allows me to do what I enjoy most which is game creation
and NOT writing 1,000's of lines of source code which is boring & time consuming...
