Could you give an example of a sandbox game?

If it's a 2D game it should be possible.

The answer to how is pretty simple:
- Learn to understand how C2 works.
- Create your game.

This forum is full of answers and examples which may not be 100% like what you are trying to do, but when you know the basics a lot can be derived from them and sometimes you only have to change a small amount of code to get to that 100%

Hi. It should be possible. I found some games and examples where even the world/level is randomly generated every time.

Construct 2 is very powerful but it can take a few tries to get the expected result in the beginning. But once you know how commands and expressions are used its very easy and fast to create new things.

Oh okay thanks, so what would I need to do to make the world generate randomly that you can dig?
I don't know where I would find that information :/

Instead of trying to make the game you want immediately, first try to learn the basics of programming with Construct 2.
If your goal is to play beethoven on the piano you first start learning easier tunes, right?
