We're second, apparently.
They provided the .gmx of the files. It would appear they create a new object for each 'sprite'. Not exactly the fastest method on the planet. I actually can't load it for some reason.
I don't know much about Construct 2, but since the creators of it themselves did the test, I'd assume they optimised the heck out of it.
there is actually a topic of this on the Tigs forum here:
where one of the Scirra team(ScirraTom) is reading. He's a cool fella, if you have any questions about how they did the tests, ask him.
Anyway, time Yoyogames did their own benchmark. (I seem to recall Mike promising...)
And as for rules about no competing products.. yes, I know about the rule. Don't tell me about it. If a mod closes it, he closes it. I think the topic is well appropriate, however...
