Build a Shoot-'Em-Up in Construct 2: Power-Ups and Enemies

by

In this tutorial screencast series, we're building a frantic side-scrolling shoot-'em-up, complete with multiple levels, parallax scrolling, lots of enemies, power-ups, and even a boss battle. We're using the free Construct 2 gamedev tool, meaning you don't need any previous programming or game development knowledge. In this part, we'll add power-ups and enemies.


Play the Final Game Demo

Here's what we'll be working towards throughout the whole of this series:


The full game has power-ups, multiple levels and enemies, a parallax-scrolling background, and a big boss fight! The difficulty has been reduced to help show off the features in this demo, but of course you can make your game as easy or hard as you like.

In this part of the tutorial, we'll add the power-ups and the enemies (though you won't be able to destroy them yet).
