I've recently started to play around with games development in my spare time. I've worked as a developer for many years, but in non-games sectors, so thought it would be fun to give it a go.
My first project was to make a Super Mario clone. I thought that this would be the simplest place to start. I've based this one on the levels from Super Mario World on SNES.
The game is by no means finished but it's at a stage where people can take a look and see what they think of it. It currently has 3 levels, each one introduces some new features, as well as a level editor.
It's written in C++ using SDL.
Videos of the game in action, along with download links are available on my blog, here
Please take a look and see what you think.
