    As a complete noob in coding and after trying unity and gamemaker I can be 100% that this is the best app for making simple games fast!

    All the other game making apps I have tryed, claimed to be verry easy to use.
    If they are easy to use, than either I am a complete idiot, or construct 2 is just some sort of thoughts to code transformator.

    Simply put. If you want to start making games, without almost any code knowledge, you need to try this!

    This is, by far, the best 2d Video Game engine there is. If you are reading this because you think this will turn out like "Game Studio" then feel no hesitation in downloading the free version of this game: Game Studio starts you off with "Catch the Clown," Construct 2 starts you off with a top down alien shooter. Not to say that Game Studio is bad, but if you can READ, you CAN make a GAME with CONSTRUCT 2. (In less than an hour!) The possibilities are, truly, endless.

    Great program for the beginner/intermedite programmer interested in creating games! Great educational tool though as I may use it to teach my kids the basics of programming. I particually like to have 100% control over my projects so I will stick to the hard coding and designing my own projects. Basically I checked this out to use as a tool to get my kids more involved and to teach them.

    A simple, and "relatively" easy to learn tool Construct 2 comes with tutorials and samples to help you get started making 2d games fast. Construct 2 is a free alternative to some of the other game makers you will find here on Steam, and with its simple tools you are sure to be able to at least make something, and maybe even learn something in the process. I think you should try Construct 2 if you looking for a game making tool. Or even if you are just interested in making 2d games. There is not alot I can say about this particular game making software, besides that it is simple and free. Overall would I rate Construct 2 Decent on a scale of suck to awesome.

    Its easy to use, and i would recommend it for everyone who wants to try to develop small or big 2D games. But it takes time to get a really good result.
    Its a great piece of software, that is perfect for a beginner, and even good if you already know how to code, since it reduces development time really much.
    Please note, that everyone noting that C2 on Steam is instable - It's the same product & code, except how it handles to check if you bought it. It's definetely not instable, it was, but not only on Steam, and it got fixed in the meantime.
    C2 also features auto-backup, Official Multiplayer (WebRTC | WiP) & there is more to come, since it's a very good maintained product by scirra. There are almost weekly updates, with fixes, improvements & additions.
    If you would like to use the Steamworks API, you can't directly use it, since its written in C++ and C2 is a HTML5 Game engine. But if you have no problem with that, go ahead and buy this product, its great. (It gets reduced by 50% in Winter/Summer Sales, some times.)
    And the time displayed on top of the review, is not the actual time, its only what i used in the free edition. Actual time 375+ hours (And counting).
