Breaking the wall

Recommended Posts

Hi, like many people in this community I''m a begginer in game development.I listened to nice people advices and start off slowly with learning C/C++. After about one year of back and forth, crawling in the mud and difficult time learning this tool needed for my start in this happy GD world I think I''m ready to start one real but small game project I''ve been thinking about what I could start with to gradually improve my skills but a wall erected before me: I couln''t think of anything else than a pong or some old arcade games ? lol I guess that all this programming wiped out my creativity :D Well if someone has a small design or idea about a game that I could practice on , that would be nice Thank you -DarkPsI

Why don''t you try a simple hack&slash sidescroller without any real story but just good gameplay.

What''s wrong with doing a clone of an old arcade game? It will be good practice; in fact, anything that gets you coding will be good practice.

Sure, go for an old arcade game

I''d suggest asteroids just cuz its basic and the graphics are simple.



"With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds and open wide to suck it in, I feel it move across my skin. I''m reaching up and reaching out. I''m reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me, what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one''s been. We''ll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one''s been." - Maynard James Keenan
