In concluison before explaination: Construct 2 is a semi-perfect software and easy to use.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Really simple to use, and in no time are you able to teach youself, tons of cool features. One of the downsides is that at times you can't go completely in depth. Physics and Movement is layed out for you, and is easy to just jump right in. For people like me, who like to work with pixel-art has to increase the size of a 500 - 1000% bigger,
and if i dont, then it will look de-pixelated/blurry.

Construct 2 gets a 7.8/10

Very simple to use software. If you have your resources prepared you can very easily make a simple game in a matter of minutes. This software was designed for those with little to no programming knowledge, and because of that, has limitations on what it can do.

Great for apps, if you're making something for the desktop, Facebook, or the Android play store, this software allows you to export your project for these as well as many others. Adding input methods is very simple, and controls and physics are just a few clicks away.

In the case of RPGs this is not the greatest software to use, in fact in some situations it would be easier to type up the code, which is not currently possible. The user forum is very useful in helping you solve issues, but there are some things that just are not possible in construct at the moment.

I recommend this software to anyone focusing on smaller games and apps; however, keep in mind what kind of game you're wanting to publish when purchasing this software.

This is a very good program to use if you are lazy and just want to insert a few pictures to replace the default textures from the templates provided. Otherwise the software is really lacking a tutorial department with little information given. The price provided for both Personal, and, Business are over the top and should be lowered because at the current price I would go out on a limb and say not very many people who are not major indie developers do not purchase this type of software. Though for someone who is messing about in the game development world this is a very good place to start. Instead of Construct 2 I would prefer Unity 3-D. Unity gives in-depth tutorials and has tons of How-To's on places such as YouTube, on how to use the software. Not only does Unity have in-depth tutorials it also has some worth to it. Games such as Left for Dead 2 where made on this engine. Though the worlds created by the player may not be the most vibrant they are easily packed with FPS and RPG formats. Weapon textures can be loaded into the projects through the Workshop like area in the software. Something Construct could also take from Unity, as well as the tutorials. After extensive work with Unity use Unreal Development Kit. I do believe someform of this is free and you should check it out. The graphics are butiful and can be a very powerful tool. Though the Construct Engine is for iPhones and other forms of mobile gaming entertainment, the engine could use a shadowing process to it to add depth to the games produced. The business pack will become more of use to the producers, making more people want to release apps on this engine. Thanks for reading this review.

It seemed like useful, easy to use software. That being said, it pushed the liscensed version of the software at every single turn. It's obnoxious.
