Recently I started reading Making Games with Python And Pygame via http://inventwithpython.com/pygame/chapters/ and it's a great book. However, I get to the third chapter (Memory Puzzle) and I feel like they suddenly add in extra features of pygame/python and they aren't explain ahead of time\ at all. Is there a better tutorial that I could use to learn pygame? Pretty much I'm to the point where I should be learning sprites, animation, and collision.

PS, I've searched around the internet for a while for a decent simple sprite tutorial and collision only to find either super advanced tutorials or ones that aren't finished. :(

Are you new to python? This tutorial does state that it expects you to already know python basics.

I'm aware of python basics. Very aware. :)
I just felt like it skipped many of the basic pygame sections is all.

I have a Python video tutorial series: link.

Instead of pygame, I use pslab, which is a small media library that I designed specifically for the series (although, it could be used to make a variety of different games).

... I'm not claiming it's better than pygame (in terms of features, it's definitely not), but pslab does feature a very small/simple API, which should be much easier for beginners to understand and use.

So, if you're interested, you could give that a try.

It's very likely that you missed out on some very important information, which would explain why you're stuck.

That, or maybe it's a design flaw in the tutorial, but you can only say that for sure if you don't skip anything. Posted Image

Pretty sure I didn't skip anything but I'll take a look through to double check. :P It's happened to me before. And i'll check out that series :) Thanks
