How to Create a Drift Game with Construct 3
Construct 3 is a powerful and easy-to-use 2D game engine that allows you to create stunning games with drag-and-drop features. In this article, we will show you how to create a drift game with Construct 3, using the Car behavior and some basic events. A drift game is a racing game where you have to score points by drifting through the racing circuit. Drifting is a technique where the driver intentionally oversteers the car, causing it to slide sideways while maintaining control.
What You Need
To follow this tutorial, you will need:
A Construct 3 account. You can sign up for free here.
A basic knowledge of Construct 3 interface and features. You can learn more from the manual and the tutorials.
A sprite of a car and a background image of a racing track. You can use your own assets or download some from the store.
Step 1: Create a New Project
Open Construct 3 and click on New project. Choose an empty project and name it Drift Game. Set the layout size to 800 x 600 pixels and the window size to the same. Click on Create.

Step 2: Add the Car Sprite
In the Project Bar, right-click on Object types and select Insert new object. Choose Sprite and name it Car. Click on Insert.
Double-click on the Car sprite to open the Image Editor. Import your car image or draw your own. Make sure the origin point is at the center of the car. Close the Image Editor.
Drag and drop the Car sprite to the layout. Position it at the bottom center of the screen.
Step 3: Add the Car Behavior
Select the Car sprite and click on Behaviors in the Properties Bar. Click on Add behavior and choose Car from the list. Click on Add.
The Car behavior allows an object to accelerate forwards and backwards and have steering. It also has a simple \"drift\" feature where the object can \"skid\" around corners (by pointing in a different direction to that it is moving in). You can adjust the properties of the Car behavior according to your preference. For this tutorial, we will use these values:

Step 4: Add the Background Image
In the Project Bar, right-click on Object types and select Insert new object. Choose Tiled Background and name it Track. Click on Insert.
Double-click on the Track object to open the Image Editor. Import your background image or draw your own. Close the Image Editor.
Drag and drop the Track object to the layout. Resize it to cover the whole layout.
Step 5: Add Some Events
In order to control the car movement and score points by drifting, we need to add some events. Events are like instructions that tell Construct 3 what to do when certain conditions are met. 06063cd7f5
