The biggest difference depends on your budget, if you want to make sales, and if you want to get your game on different platforms (phone/etc).

Construct Classic is no longer developed (no updates, no bug fixes, smaller community following), but it's 100% free and open source, meaning you can sell your games without paying for it. Construct Classic can only be used to make and play games on Windows PCs. And in some cases (Vista) it can be really buggy.

Construct 2 is not free to make bigger games/sell your games, but it can export to web, mobile, and other consoles in future. It's also being updated all the time by the excellent Scirra team, and will soon have awesome features like online multiplayer built-in.

If you find a bug in Construct 2, the dev's will be able to help find and fix the bug, and if you get stuck there's tonnes of people in the forums to help you out. However, C2 currently needs a Windows PC to make the games too *but they can be played on Mac/Linux*

Either tool can be used to make great things, and have fairly similar interface and coding style, so it's really personal choice in the end on what kind of games you want to make.

Hope that helps!

I still prefer Classic Construct over C2 on some areas.Classic still has more features in terms of the ammount of plugins and behaviors than C2. And it's easier to execute an external program with classic construct than with C2. Get both and have the best of both worlds.

If you choose CC you're jumping on a sinking ship. At some point we will shut down support for it entirely, including closing these forums.

I feel that it's not a choice between CC and C2, it's a choice to learn Construct's awesome way of making games at all. Any use of CC eventually becomes a C2 user when they have commercial goals or want to reach other platforms.

I guess it doesn't help that the forum title is CC vs C2. I would never want someone to think of the two programs as competing, because Construct 2 is genuinely a new and improved version of Construct Classic.

However, Construct Classic is still useful and a great tool, even if just to give testament to the awesome work that Ashley and Tom are doing, and I feel it will always deserve a mention and continued appreciation.Jayjay2014-01-21 14:56:21
