(Note: In case anyone's dumb enough not to notice Joe's sarcasm, they're actually giving a TBC price of £45 for Lite and £99 for Pro)
Ben: I think the way they've managed to implement so much stuff so quickly is thanks to DX9. MMF is software rendered, and I believe it's Clickteam's own engine. Construct just uses a premade graphics engine, so it's a huge lump of the work gone.
Peblo: As for movements, it's important to remember that you don't *have* to use the built-ins. However, if you choose to, then they will actually work. With the event logic like For Each, and While, Construct will be superior to MMF2 in building Custom Movements (i personally don't intend to use their platform movement unless it's AMAZING). Although I think some of that functionality may also be in the next major release of MMF.
I'm looking forward to any changes they can pull of with the UI, and I've already suggested a few. Simply things like tabbing, ways to control Construct using keystrokes in preference to the mouse (I hate using the mouse for the coding aspect, since I'm less accurate with a mouse than I am with a keyboard).

So, internally it's more object-oriented, then? Coolness.
I do suggest using JS naming conventions for that though: sprite.angle rather than sprite.Angle.
