Atari's classic Tempest

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jan 26, 2013 5:07 am

I have a very straight forward question: Can Construct 2 make a game like the Atari Classic Tempest. Here is a video example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3MaVvT-9iQ

I love vector style games.

Thanks

I think it could be done, but not with actual vectors... I have the idea of setting all the possible vectors as invisible sprites and then set them visible acording to the input and set the colissions binded with visibility stats... like the digital display on the calculators or digital watches

Yes, it sure can here is a .capx of a game called Radeius made by newt. It should help you out with the basic game mechanics:
