I made a colorful animated boggle game in console a few years ago. I don't have a readily available executable but i have the source code for it. The code is a bit messy but i made a crude graphics and input system similar to Benryves' tutorial as what Crowseye suggested.
The game has a complete UI interface with buttons and texts and receives input from keyboard and mouse. As an added bonus there's even a mini mp3 player built-in for you to choose or switch songs and play them using fmod.
You'll also need to download fmod for the source to compile; for the music player thing.
