Learning the fundamentals of programming can be frustrating, but that’s where Construct 2 comes in and swoops you in off your feet. With the [Free] edition it is easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the visual scripting tool your brain has been missing.
The Content You Won’t Find Anywhere
Taken from an existing list of over 70 Construct 2 Developers, each game has been highlighted as there was NO tutorials on these types of games for Construct 2.
Throughout each game you will learn new programming principles that can be applied to any language. Each section, you will evolve your code. The first section is different from the last. We start with Starter Template Version 1 and end with version 4.
Students completing this course will have the knowledge to create anything they want. Construct 2 doesn’t limit you to only games, you can make mobile apps, advertisements, banners and more but better yet you can export them to any platform. Windows, Linux, Mac, Wii, iPhone, Android, Facebook, Kongregate and the Scirra arcade.

Jeremy Alexander, Construct 2 Game Developer // Web Developer // Animator
►Thousands of Students Enrolled in my Udemy Courses!◄
My name is Jeremy Alexander, I am 22 years old and I have been studying animation, game design and web design for the past 10 years. Currently, I am a full-time online entrepreneur developing new tools and products as well as making animations with Anime Studio Pro and After Effects. I also love making games with Unity, Game Maker Studio, and of course Construct 2. And finally I tinker with web applications using my favorite IDE, Webstorm! Working online full time has enabled me to be apart of the “real world” and gain experience I could NEVER have learned from a traditional classroom.
My background starts with animation. I have taken years of classes from very prestigious schools such as Animation Mentor, SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), and SVA (School of Visual Arts in NYC) providing me with knowledge of 2D & 3D fundamentals.
Most of these languages have other functionality than just web design and with that knowledge I have begun developing PC games using the latest available software. I have entered a few game jams such as Ludum Dare, Mini LD & 1GAM with my game Shark Gore Boats, Cats and Spikes, and Quietus.
Currently I run my YouTube channel called Jerementor! Which has a range of game tutorials, livestreams and my own twist on lets plays! Go check out my channel first if you have any doubts buying one of my courses 🙂
With the success of all my courses, I am working on creating my first company called If Else Learn! I wouldn’t have been able to do so without the wonderful help Udemy has provided me.
Finally (and randomly), I published a kindle book called Picky Eating into Adulthood which has seen rapid success.
I am looking forward to connecting with YOU about areas that I know and learning new things myself! Feel free to message me at anytime for questions, suggestions or collaborations!
