Making a Smash Tv styled game

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Jan 13, 2013 7:52 am

Hello!
I'm very new here and after completing the tutorial I attempted to modify it into a Smash Tv/Robotron styled game but ran into some trouble, mainly in that my bullets were spawned to quickly and I could shoot in all four directions at once, if anyone wants to help I would much appreciate it.

Try the tutorial again and see if you can figure it out.

Double check which imagepoint the bullets are spawning from (probably right now you are spawning them from the origin.

and check the bullet speed properties to see how fast they are moving

you are also probably spawning them every tick instead of every X seconds

@Darkflame Thanks for sending it through!

The great thing about Construct 2 is that there are so many ways to achieve the same thing.

Give this a go, and let me know if you need help understanding it. Also, please note that event order is important. Make sure your character changes direction and THEN shoots, otherwise it will fire before chaning direction
