Anything I should know about this?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Are there anything common that a lot of people struggle with about Construct 2? Anything I should know before getting into it?

Example: this other game making program I've left because I've had collision and slope problems and I haven't been able to get much help with it.
-But Construct 2, however, I haven't encountered any collision problems, this program's really good at it, making it simple.

So far this looks like a really good program to get into, it's straight forward and easy to use.

If you plan to release for mobile, test on hardware from the offset. A game that runs fine on desktop will not necessarily run well on mobile.

I gotta say, the platformer behaviour handles slopes VERY well in Construct 2.

Yep, it's hardcoded to run up any slope up to 45 degrees - however, it can jump up any slope - you'll probably want to code your own cliff sliding algorithm.
