Question about performance

I am curious if Construct 2 can handle a game like Corporation Inc which
seems to be made in flash.

http://www.kongregate.com/games/ArmorGames/corporation-inc

There would be quite a number of instances on screen at once and I feel like performance will suffer terribly.

Although my initial instinct is "maybe" I want a second opinion just so I have a better idea of Construct's limitations

Construct is quite powerful, and the event system should be flexible enough for one to code such a game without too much pain.
As long as you stay on desktop platforms there shouldn't be many performance issues.

Cheers,

I think performance would drop in endgame when I look at a video of the game in later stages. I can't make a good estimate though, maybe I am wrong.mindfaQ2013-11-18 22:10:56

Thanks for the quick replies, late game would suffer for sure. I'm interested if Construct could even handle mid-game and so far I've got two votes of confidence

Construct 2 can easily do that game.
I have recently started using C2 and I am finding it quite powerful and that it can handle doing most things quite well.

But at what performance, that's the question. Not if it is codeable - we know it is.

In modern browsers Construct 2 games use a native-grade WebGL renderer and the browser is JIT-compiling all Javascript to machine code. So it should be pretty capable of handling anything Flash used to be able to handle, and more.
