Introduction
Construct is a free powerful and easy to use development software for both DirectX 9-based games and applications. It includes an event based system for defining how the game or application will behave, in a visual, human-readable way - easy enough for complete beginners to get results quickly. Optionally, advanced users can also use Python scripting to code your creations.

Construct is not a commercial software project, and is developed by volunteers. It is 100% free to download the full version - no nag screens, adverts or restricted features at all.
Features
Create games and applications with:

* Super fast hardware-accelerated DirectX 9 graphics engine
* Add multiple pixel shaders for special effects, including lighting, HDR, distortion, lenses and more
* Advanced rendering effects like motion blur, skew and bumpmapping (3D lighting)
* Innovative Behaviors system for defining how objects work in a flexible way
* Physics engine for realistic object behavior
* Place object on different layers for organising display, parallaxing, or whole-layer effects - also freely zoom individual layers in and out with high detail
* Debugger giving you complete control over all aspects of your game for testing purposes.
* Python scripting for advanced users - however, Construct's Events system is still powerful enough to complete entire games without any scripting.
* Smaller, faster specialised runtime for applications
* 60+ plugins ranging from Tiled Background to Windows controls and a C++ plugin SDK for custom development

Development process
Construct is developed open source under the General Public License (GPL). This means you can download and use Construct for free, but it also means that the underlying source code - the code that defines how the program works - is also freely available. This means other programmers are free to fix errors in the code and make their own contributions to Construct. Development is located on Construct's SourceForge.net page.

For more information, see Open-source Software (Wikipedia) and GPL (Wikipedia), the open-source license Construct uses.
User Interface Library
Construct uses the Prof-UIS professional user interface library, with kind permission of FOSS Software, Inc. Remember if you wish to use this library in your own project, you must purchase the appropriate license from the website.

Hey guys!

I've finally finished working on v0.2 of ROPEWALK3R. It's been a long time since I've released any new content but I guess it's better later than never.

First of all there is a new stage which consists of 5 levels:

level4menu


The main mechanic of this stage are spinners which allow you to create spinning ropes, here's an example:

ropeexample1


Your main obstacle are scissors which will destroy rope on collision so you have to be precise.

Level 5:

stage5


Save/Load:

I've also added an automatic save/load function which stores your progress and automatically loads it on startup.

Level design fixes, improvements and minor bug fixes:

  • Changed a couple of Stage II and Stage III levels
  • Faster menu transitions
  • Fixed a bug with falling through levels
  • Removed intro if you've already seen it

I hope you will like it. Feel free to check it out on itch.io


Any feedback and suggestions are welcomed :)

Cheers!

One of the best game engines, for beginners and advanced users. You can do almost everything you want, 2D impressive games. like top down shooter, race games, RPG style, survival, terror games, adventure, point and click.

Construct Its also fun to use! and really easy to learn by yourself or if you need a "speed learn curve" check on internet browser construct game developers community┬┤s, Internet Video-tutorials. Really helps a lot if get stuck in your project or if you want to know if its possible to do a certain thing, discover the actual capacity of Construct can do.

This game is probably one of the best I've seen. I've tried scripting systems similar to Construct's (primarily RTS games like Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds), and I have to say this leads the pack. Also, the fact that you can make commercial games without having to do anything, other than credit the original devs, is a rather nice bullet-point in choosing this engine.

As for multi-platform development... I frankly am not that deeply concerned as of yet. While I do look forward to making my gamessome day work on Linux and Mac as well, the PC is a good proving ground before you go further. It's better to know if you're ready to actually develop games before you start something like a Source Mod or a 3D game (such as a game using CryEngine3, UDK, or Unity).
