Code For Games In Beginner Tutorial (Tetris, PacMan, etc.)

Recommended Posts

Where can I find the "recommended" copies of the intro games listed in the beginner''s tutorial? They recommend starting with Tetris, Breakout, Pacman, Super Mario, but I''m not sure how to go about creating them (studying/copying the code and learning that way?). I''m using C++ for this. Thanks in advance!

not sure if I'm correct on this, but I think there's something around the boards on this. For Super Mario, the source is released. Go here: http://www.cprogramming.com/cboard. Just search for "SMB" and you'll find it. If not though, search for "Super Mario", but without the quotes.

I think what they mean is try to emulate a similar game.. Break it down in to components.

A good start would be to figure out how to draw things to the screen.

I''m thinking about the tutorial that was about how to get started writing games and they recommended making clones of those games. I didn''t know if the author meant to make it up off the top of my head or find a good clone and study/recreate what they did (as in the old programming adage of studying source code while learning to code). Any tips? This is a great site, by the way!

Check into using Allegro for your game programming, its Keen!

And the forums at www.allegro.cc are super friendly and helpful!
