i'm sorry but there wasn't 200 updates yet. there was 198 updates - version 1 is starter version - r 199 is the 198th update for version 1. therefore version 201 is update 200 :p
but yeah, r200 next week hopefully!!
i think for 2D that c2 and once it's released c3 will be the best. i know that there's unity / unreal now and others, but that's just meh. the only and only downfall in this engine is no native export, but i think people won't do as much 2d in unreal/unity as much as they will in c2/c3.
