My first post, please be gentle!
OK, so, I installed Construct 2 yesterday and it's amazing. Really liking the deceptive simplicity of it, mixed with the raw power :)
So, decided to build a Space Invaders game as a little learning exercise... And I'm already stumped!
I have a couple of issues I'd like some help with - or feel free to point me at tutorials that my blurry eyes may have missed.
1. I have a small 4x8 grid of Aliens. Is there a simple way to animate the group, as a whole, in that classic Space Invaders edge-to-edge-then-descend-a-row movement?
2. Is there a way to animate a gentle 'rocking' movement on a sprite? Rotate seems to only have the option of a 360 degree rotation, and in one direction, rather then the 10-15 degrees I actually want, back and forth.
3. How can I randomize the appearance of a 'min-boss' at the top of the screen?
My apologies if these have been covered already - I have looked but I'm either too tired or it doesn't exist in the tuts section.
Any further advice on things I may not have considered yet are greatly appreciated! I suspect there will be plenty of other questions :)
