I am a Beginner of game programming, i wrote a simple game like super mario using the C language and MappyAL Library.
I think you will learn a lot of 2D game programming skills from this game, just enjoy!

Yes, but there is no pass by reference in C, so pointers will have to do.
passing pointers around is also something i like less and less, since its so easy to pass references around

I am having issues running the program on my computer. I get a message that changes it to windows 7 basic colour (but when does it not with Allegro apps?). The main issue I have is that it doesn't look like it refreshes/redraws itself and I move, and 5 seconds later I'll be at another portion of the level, frozen again. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Also, include the alleg42.dll with your exe as I had to put it in myself for it to run.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to play it on Linux. It seems like the game divides something by zero. I'm posting output from the debugger, hope it helps.
Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.

(gdb) print mapblockgapx
