Takes very less space

What do you like best?

I know that a lot of game development softwares require a complicated setup, and a lot of prerequisites and space. Construct.net has a very easy setup and you can also make the best use of steam. It has great drag and drop options through which you can customize your games and one of the best features is that it does not require you to write hundreds of lines of code to develop your game.

It works really well on different browsers and has a lot of pre-provided solutions.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike; I have absolutely enjoyed creating games for my students as a form of arcade quiz, some therapeutic games etc. The quality is not the best and the options are a bit limiting for creating the games, but it definitely fulfills the purpose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend everyone to check this software out and make the best use of it during the trial period to see it if meets your requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to design learning based games for different classes, study the effect of games and fun learning methods for my research and collaborate with multiple people to create fun interactive games. It is a very interesting concept and has made the game development community wider by including people from a non computer science background as well.

Very easy to design games

What do you like best?

Really easy to develop innovative drag and drop games through Construct. The biggest plus is that you don't need years and years of coding experience to make the best use of this. The range of the behaviors is great as well, and including it has definitely made the job easier. Overall, it's great for simple games.

What do you dislike?

Does not provide a lot of platforms on which you can release your games. Also, the in-game descriptions aren't descriptive enough. You will not be able to use it to create complex games.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using it for personal use as well along with professional use because you can just create so many types of games easily that can keep you entertained or even teach you in a fun manner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to generate simple games to enhance learning ability of course materials at my company. It definitely helped me greatly because of the nature of games I was developing. Pretty easy and straight forward to use, I have loved using Construct.

Innovative and Easy

What do you like best?

The best thing is that people with no knowledge of programming can fulfill their game creation desires as well, through Construct. It is simple and based on HTML5 which is easy to use and understand. Another great feature is the drag and drop feature to just add on the items to the game. The download process is simple and they have a good community and help-base online.

What do you dislike?

To understand how to use it, there are way too many tutorials that are mandatory. It is also pretty limited in the scope of creating games and the visuals are of low quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For easy games, I would definitely recommend using this rather than any other javascript based software. This will do the job well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often use it to create games at my company and it is very easy to use. My family, who have no programming experience use it as well and it's a really fun experience.

Really easy to use

What do you like best?

The absolute best thing about Construct is that it makes game creation very easy for non programmers. Often, you have to have high coding skills or knowledge of using Maya etc to design your own games. You can just drag and drop anything you want on the editor and create the game you like! It's fun and easy to use. I love that you can also make your own games for actual learning purposes.

What do you dislike?

It does not allow too much of a variety or ventures that you can explore because of the limited layouts. It is still a really fun place to create though! It is also pretty expensive in my opinion, because even just for personal use it is $99 per year.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you like exploring new things and ways of learning as well as entertainment, this will be a really fun place for you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to create learning games and fun java tutorials for my students. It is definitely a very innovative way of learning and fun to both use and design.

Good Game Machine

What do you like best?

Really good place to create 2D games, which are primarily non-code based. It is easily available on Steam and is fast to pick up and understand. The personal edition is well prices. One of the best things is that is that they have built-in solutions for certain problems you might encounter.

What do you dislike?

You can't really create more than just simple and straightforward games. The graphics can be improved as well, and it is not very fast as compared to native code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have enjoyed using construct and I would recommend others from non programming or computer science based backgrounds to try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often use it to develop simple games for smaller groups which focus on just one primary intent. It is also a good past time, and definitely a great place to learn. The free version is a huge plus as well.

Ease of Set up!

What do you like best?

Most gaming development software require a few GBs of downloads and installation. The best feature of construct is that I did not need to spend any time at all for setting up and did not have to waste any memory and space on my personal computer because the entire game developer software loaded up right in my browser.

It works on multiple platforms such as MAC and Unix too without overwhelming my browser because it's all HTML.

What do you dislike?

I have had some problems with creating files and executables for Android and iPhones because they rely heavily on HTML and not native formats.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try construct if you want to make games and bring ideas to life or simply want to just to try out an idea. Construct is a good idea if you have issues with space on your PC or don't have money/time for programming.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Construct to create lightweight games that work on multiple formats without any programming most of the time. These games can be easily monetized too.
