I''d suggest creating a decent tile editor first instead of just hardcoding an array of tiles in the game. It''s quite a bit more complicated at first but it should save you lots of time and hassle later on. The file format is totally up to you. Probably easiest just to use a binary file and store each tile as one or two bytes.
