Construct Classic R2 - Examples Kit

I've been using Construct Classic, a free & open source Direct-X 9 based 2D game development tool, to make games and share a few examples on the Scirra forums for a few years now. After looking through how many files "a few" is, I figured it might be handy for newer users to have a compiled version of all* my examples and source files in one zip file =]

I'll keep an updated changelog at the bottom of the post, so check back once in a while for updates!

Download the zip file here: Jayjays (70.6MB)

Download the latest version of Construct Classic [vR2] here: Construct Classic R2 (16.2MB)

Construct Classic is getting a bit old now, but still works well while its successor: Construct 2 is another great tool from the Scirra team and exports to multiple platforms thanks to its basis in HTML5.

*Note: Example code from my book: Construct Game Development: Beginner's Guide is not included as it belongs to Packt Publishing
-Version 1 of the example kit uploaded

Usage Permissions:
All example files (subfolder "Examples") and graphics (subfolder "Graphics") are free for commercial use unless otherwise stated in their documentation. Credit is optional but appreciated.
Full game source codes (subfolder "Games") are free for learning purposes/non-commercial works. Credit is again optional, however any commercial use of the resources or base codes of those games is not permitted.
For further usage concerns not covered please contact me.

Past Games: SimpleFPS V2.2

What It Is:
SimpleFPS is literally a "Simple First Person Shooter game" I created with Blitz3D between 2007 and 2008. You're able to run around a large plane and scale tall buildings while trying to survive an endless battle against the grey blocks and spheres that seek and attack you.

The game has no gore/violence, so it should be safe for any age audience.

The title menu for SimpleFPS 2.2

-Modifiable graphics and sounds
-Randomly generated levels
-Flying and ground enemies
-Random and level/score mode
-Open source*

*The full source is included in text format, requires Blitz3D to compile/edit.
