Request to a Constructor!

Get help using Construct 2

Hey guys, I am ShakeSpear, I have been trying to learn how to program for a while but due to personal difficulties I haven't had time yet. I am starting college in a little bit (This year) and I wanted to make a game before I did so.

I found construct 2 and went through the beginner tutorial. I understood most of it but one thing that is not clear to me is, how do I make an iPhone game? Is there someone who could possibly make a tutorial (short of long) of a demo game which would be a shooting game. Not a FPS game but like a old school shooting game where the player is a ship that is shooting these monsters coming to it in space.

The thing that is confusing me is, how do I make it so that the player moves and the background moves too. But since the game is for a 'touch' device in my case an iPhone 4S, how does it go? I think I can figure out the part where the player is controlled by touch and everything but how exactly would I be able to make a realistic background that is moving and the player that is being controlled at move at the same time.

I am sorry if this is confusing and is in the wrong section... I am just trying my best to learn! :(ShakeSpear2013-06-24 21:25:09

I'm working on sample capx. If you want to export the game to mobile, you're gonna need C2 Personal Edition(or Business).

Well exporting isn't even the main problem... The problem is that there is no follow through beginners tutorial for any touch devices. There are tips and they are useful but I want to follow through of an iPhone or an Android game that is a shooting game :(

Thanks for replying though! :)

1) Build shooting game which incorporates touch
2) test etc
3) export to android/ios (i've used both.)

I have the personal edition of construct 2.

I know how to export and everything but my question is related to making the game. :/

How does the 'Space Blaster' demo scroll automatically? There are four background images but I still don't understand how exactly its done. And at the start of the project there is a blue square labeled 'Scroll' I looked in the event tab for its purpose as I thought it was related to the auto-scrolling feature but had no luck! :(

Someone make a video or explain the space blaster project please! :(

I think there already are some tutorials on the site about how to make a shooter...

Maybe something like this?

Yes a little bit of the same concept, but I want one that is for touch devices.

Thanks a lot though!!
