Construct Classic is an application that enables users to create 2D games. It is simple and easy to use and does not require prior knowledge in programming, making it an ideal tool for educators who want to teach their students about basic programming logic, and for digital artists who would like to design games. Advanced program developers can utilize this application for building prototypes and mockups, or for simple programming tasks that do not require meticulous coding.
Among the numerous features of the application are the following:
• Accurate physics behavior – the application provides realistic simulations to objects based on the laws of physics
• Advanced rendering – Construct Classic makes use of advanced rendering effects such as motion blur and skew
• Python scripting – advanced developers can utilize the embedded Python scripts for faster processing
• Bone animation – the use of a bone animation system makes animated movements flow smoothly
• Debugger – the built-in debugger lets users view the game’s internal (code) status when in play, so users can correct commands when needed
The application makes use of a ribbon interface where users can easily access the commonly-used tools without cluttering the main screen. The interface has four panes or bars that can be rearranged and resized according to user preference: Layers Bar, Properties Bar, Project Bar, and the Resources Bar. The application comes with a built-in image editor and a layout editor for convenient image modification and level designing.
