My VB class at college has me doing an assignement for the end of the semester. Basically, I''m supposed to write "a program that uses concepts not seen in class". So instead of doing a lame little text editor like everyone else, I made (am making...) a 2D RPG à-la SNES. Lemme tell you, VB is not the choice for games. But it works.

Look into the Win32 API (google for a tutorial, should be easy...). You want to be able to understand the concepts of masking sprites and how to use BitBlt at least. Experiment a bit with keyboard/mouse input and just chain it all together. That should get you started.
