Does anyone know where I can download an open source 2D platformer game written in C#. I'm trying to make my first game using xna and I think it would help a lot to have an example to look at and try figure out rather than just looking at tutorials. Also, any advice or links about simple game programming is welcome. Or if I'm starting off with something too big let me know.

Look at all the other links on the above page.

Probably, even a simple platformer is pretty complex. However, you can poke around the above linked source, and if you feel overwhelmed just concentrate on something simpler, such as one aspect of a game.

I got this one running after I deleted all the '$' symbols they placed in random places throughout the code. But the ai isn't very good and for some reason the controls don't work.

Edit: Never mind they set the controls to q and a
