Construct 3 on School iPads

  • Scirra,

    I just wanted to say a big thank-you for putting together an iPad-friendly version of C3. This is huge for us, as our school replaced most of our computers several years ago with iPads. We have been wanting to use Construct in the classroom, but haven't done so for lack of a usable platform. We have several hundred students excited to try out the new program.

    Keep up the good work!

  • That's great to hear! It's still experimental but we do hope to have good support for C3 on iOS in the long term. I'd be interested to hear how it goes if you use it.

    I tried Construct 3 with my school iPad, and I can't get Construct 3 to link with my Cloud Saves, so there is no way for me to use it in a professional capacity yet, but this isn't really necessary for the students.

    As long as we have a way to get images from photos into the game engine, we should be able to start making basic things. I teach physics, so I am interested in simulating movement and for kids to learn how to show movement as a series of position changes every tick.

    Since all of the iPads now have high resolution screens, would it be possible to use the full interface, rather than the simplified mobile version? My students are used to working with their fingers on small screens, and I suspect they might have an easier time learning the software if the full UI were visible.

  • cjbruce in the settings under the menu there is a UI mode option. By default its automatic, you can change it to Desktop if you want to.

    I suppose that it would be up to a teacher. If you love using Construct, I would recommend asking your teacher if you can spend some class time working with it. Making games isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it might be cool if you had some spare time for independent work.

  • Yeah its definitely worth asking!
