Construct 2 book published - free review copies available

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Jun 01, 2017 6:23 pm

Hi everybody,

I am one of the authors of the recently published book Game Development with Construct 2. It contains 12 complete game project examples with explanations, inspired by classic games and genres such as Asteroids, Frogger, Flappy Bird, Breakout, car racing games, tower defense games, PacMan, Super Mario Bros., and The Legend of Zelda (screenshots below). The material is based on my experience teaching high school and college students to create games with Construct for the past five years. Ashley wrote a foreword for the book, and Kyatric was the technical reviewer. It is available on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Game-Development-Construct-Design-Realization/dp/1484227832/) and Apress (http://www.apress.com/us/book/9781484227831), where you can download all the graphics/audio used in the book for free.

The publishing company is willing to send out a limited number of free copies of the eBook (PDF format), in exchange for posting an honest review of the book on amazon.com or other websites. If anyone is interested in this offer, please send me an e-mail ([email protected]) stating your interest, and I will make arrangements with the publishers.

I'm just busy going through the book at the moment & it's really helping me get back up to scratch with Construct, it's been a while since I used it.

I've got a few more chapters to complete, but enjoying the variety of games & the complexity as the chapters progress. I'll be posting a review once I'm done.
