Welcome Ms. PacMarian
I have been working lately to create more old school games, and today you can find a new one in the store and by the end of next week the next one should pass certification. They have been created with Construct 2 and I will be releasing the .capx project to allow beginner Game Devs use them as starter kits.
This one is an old school platformer, and you will have not a problem figuring out the main influences. But it will certainly evolve and add more flavor with time. Help Marian PacMarian to escape the infinite rooms infested with ghosts. This platformer will evolve and bring you all the flavor of the classics with a silly coating of candy and fun.
You can find this game in the Windows Store here: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/pacmarian/74db29cf-e352-4efc-9b67-d770d3f0af90#
Let me know what you think of these games, and suggest new starter kits with Construct 2.
