R&D: Scroller Plug-in for Construct 2

, By Patcoola

I have created a plug-in for the game creation program Construct 2, this plug-in replaces the included feature “Scroll To”. Scroller provides a wide range of features and options for creating side scrolling games.

      It’s not finished (no save support, no scale support, no debug support), and if it were I would put it up for sale on the Construct website for 25CAD.
