I really like Construct 2 and so far have 200 hours in it on Steam. You will see only 21 hours on record here and that's just where problems begin with the Steam version construct - bugs. Biggest problem is, that Construct 2 gets performance problems after a while of running. Not sure what is causing it, but sometimes it is so bad that text you type in is delayed for 3-5 seconds.
Other problem: associating file types of Construct 2 with the program is an issue with the steam version. Opening a file direcly by double click doesn't work, the most you get is opening Construct by double-clicking a construct file. And even then Steam labels it as the Free version, although you start the Personal version (that's why it shows only 21 hours on record for me in this review - it's the time I spent in the free version).
Opening multiple instance of the program doesn't work, except by tricking Steam.
Only good thing about the Steam version are the automatic updates - those are comfortable and were part of my decision to get that software on Steam. But this does not outweigh the cons, especially not the frustrating performance issues that have bene here for years and thus are unlikely to get fixed. I've had those performance problems on different PCs, so it's unlikely it's my PCs fault.
So: if you wanna buy Construct 2, buy it from the creator's homepage, would be my advice. Or wait for Construct 3. It's a really cool piece of software that let's you prototype interactive games really quick and while it may not be the best performance-wise, it offers many features and is easy to learn and use, even stuff like multiplayer can be added to your games.
