Why is it that as soon as my engine looks more and more like an engine, the speed gets slower and slower? I don''t mean like a few frames, I mean unplayable slowness. I''m using SDL, and I''ve seen pleanty of other fast games made with it. What should I do? Give up, start over, read a bunch of tutorals, or what?

Use a profiler. Find which code is costing the most and why. If your seeing extremely drastic slowdowns, your architecture may not be appropriate (poor choice of containers, etc.)
