FREE Game Templates in Construct 2

Hello guys, I have been creating several game templates that should help you to get a faster and polished products, or help you to learn Construct 2 much faster.

In the following weeks I should find some time to polish these templates and get them all up to date. You will notice that some are more polished in their behaviors and graphics. Also, to get them ready for Github I should make certain that I have translated all comments and should create a nice description of the project.

In any case, I hope you enjoy the templates, many more should be available soon.

• Roguelike Alien
http://bit.ly/myrogue
Top down adventure with randomly generated scenarios. Virtual thumbstick for touch controlled devices. Keyboard support. Polished art from @KenneyWings. Shadow management for Mobs. Full game already published in the store: http://bit.ly/roguealien

• Chili Zombies
Side scrolling shooting. Gamepad implementation. Ready to use mouse, keyboard and touch.

• The Falling
Game that I reserved to explain in around 45 mins to students. Many of the videos in my channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/kanedarkon/videos ) explain the details of this one.

• Doodle Bombs
Platformer with my own kind of twist. Perfect to explain the bullet behavior.

• Falling Xmas
Xmas themed platformer.

• Flappy In the Storm
Riding the Flappy Bird wave. Using a C2 template I polished and completed a full game.

• Pumpkin Escape
My take on Doodle Jump. Infinite jumper with a few twists like falling zombies.

• Santa Vs Zombies
My kind of Xmas. Infinite Runner.

• S G Runner
One of my first infinite runners. Not the best, but simple to modify.

• S G Storm
Copter like game.

• Super G
My first Infinite Jumper. It has inclinometer support.

• Tainted Love
(Yes, I do like to created stupid links that put weird ideas in your head. I have issues, I know :)
Valentine’s themed platformer.

• Super G Invaders
Not the best graphics, but it was my take on Space Invaders.

You may see that some games are incredibly much more polished than others, and that is because I was learning about C2 at the same time I was publishing the games. So, you should be able to find games for all tastes and expertise levels.
