First Year Games Design Students make games at UCLan

First year students have been using Scirra's Construct 2 game engine
to design artwork for and build their own Top Down Games
with tutor, Bev Bush.
They've designed a variety of sprite creatures and tiled background canvases,sourced or created specific sound effects and music, and created a variety of games that are colourful and fun to play, using visual coding only. Construct 2 is intuitive to work with and once initial tutorials have been followed, students find they can be playful with the visual coding to implement their own events and actions to instigate the game play.
Student Top Down Shooter Games in progress can be played on the Game Jolt website
