Do you remember Scirra’s Construct 2? Construct 2 is a game maker for Windows that lets everyone create amazing games for iOS, Android, HTML5 and more.
You can see some tests I made with this amazing tool in the posts HTML5 version of Circle Chain engine using Scirra’s Construct2 and Save the Totem: HTML5 game prototype made with Construct2.
Scirra’s team is improving the tool more and more, and today I want to show you how you can easily add particle effects on your projects, so I am going to add a particle explosion in the Circle Chain prototype.
Adding a particle effect in Construct 2 couldn’t be easer: first we create a new particle object:
Then we assign an image, in this case a red 4×4 pixels square”
And finally, after setting some parameters such as alpha, size, number of particle, and all the variables you are used to manage when dealing with particles, we are ready to insert them in the “code”:
And, look at the magic, now the red circle explodes with an eye-catching particle effect, made in less than a minute.
Click anywhere on the stage to make red circle explode and start the chain reaction.
