Simple Point&Click Inventory Mechanics

Get help using Construct 2

Hi guys,
I'm really new to construct, so excuse my noobness.
I already searched the forums, but can't find something fitting.

I just have a static screen with a baground-picture.
Now I want to place objects there you can collect by clicking on them and they will appear in you inventory box.
Like in monkey island you know, but without a moving character.
I only found Mikey's Adventure Tutorial, which looks like a little too complex.

Do you have any tutorials for point&click mechanics or general
advice, how I should handle this?

Thx for your reply Wastrel.
Your example LOOKS like what I need, but it only imitates it.
It only changes the objects screen position on click.
I need something like: On-click -> remove item from screen -> let item appear on free position in inventorybox.
Later you should be able to use items from inventory with other objects on screen etc...

hayungs, I have updated the example to include what i think you are talking about. It's been a long while since I played anything like Monkey Island, so I'm a little unsure about the exact mechanics. This should get you started though.

Download from the link in my first post.

Nice work Wastrel. I also was thinking of making a point, and click style game. This will come in very handy I think for a lot of people. Thanks for the nice example.

Thanks @wink. C2 is really nice for throwing something together and having it turn out pretty well.

Hi! I was looking for something like this and found this post.

What I would like to build is something like this example but that saves the items with name and value to a list on disk so you can call it back in other layout and combine items /use in other object. I dont know if this can be done all using global variables or is it something else.

It can be done with WebStorage.
You just have to call it back later.
