Differents moves

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Thu Jan 03, 2013 10:53 am

Hello everyone,

There is a lot of movement in CC, and in games in general (for the main character). In my game, for now, it's 8 direction with angle oriented to mouse. It's a top view camera.

But I was wondering what kinds of other movement there is in games with that camera ?


Sorry for my english, I'm french. Hope I'm clear. :)

Not sure I understand the question (lost in translation perhaps? ;) )

If you mean what other movements could you use in CC in a top down view, well you have Physics and Custom Movement. Also bullet if you wanted the player to control something that's always moving forward.

Hi,

Sorry, I'll try again. ^^ I want more to know what kinds of movement there are in games, not only in Construct. Differents moves possible in a top view camera ! :)

EDIT :

For instance, there is 8 Direction movement, diablo-like movement, RTS movement. And I'd like to know others type.

Hope I'm clear. Martifou2013-01-06 15:52:01

Sorry, forgot about this thread as I don't pop into this forum much.

I think you've named them all yourself ;p

hmmm off the top of my head there's -

Cannon Fodder (probably fits under RTS movement since you click and your soldiers go to where you click, right click was fire if I remember correctly)

Breakout / Arkanoid (move the bat with the mouse)

Racing games like Super Sprint on Amiga

Turn based games like the old XCOM

I can't think of anymore right now..

Just search youtube for top down 2d games... should give you a variety ;)procrastinator2013-01-07 02:10:50
