    Not bad

    The properties panel should have been explained as well as global variables for those who don't understand programming. YouTube videos could have giving me more with the ability to download .

    Superb, Simple and Brief

    Excellent job Mr. Farias. This course is short but shows plenty for use in making a complete game. Exactly what I expected, exactly what I needed. Great course.

    More than just the Basics

    This is a fantastic Tutorial that takes you through the introduction to making a game at a gentle pace. I think this course almost sells itself short as it gives far more than just the basics you would expect from other tutorials. i learnt a lot doing this tutorial and that was after having done many others for Construct 2. Definitely worth the money!

    Good Beginner's Course

    This short course is suitable for the beginner. The author has a very straightforward and clear style of delivery; spending just enough time introducing the basic premise of Construct2 before launching into the practical task of making a simple game. The instruction takes the form of demonstration coupled with some all important explanation about why things are done and how things work together. The only small criticism, I'd make is that the sound of the tutor's typing might be felt to be a tad distracting by some. I'd The course involves using enough of the wide range of features of Construct2 for the student to begin writing his or her own simple game after completing the course. It also stands the student in good stead to look at more of what Construct2 has to offer in order to gradually tackle more complex games. All in all, a good, short and concise introduction to the deceptively powerful Construct2 2D game creator.
