Have some time to think about it... what defines a game that scroll?

Everything moves in a direction, right?

Simply move everything according to a scrollvector... if you're going for a tilebased scroller, simply make the drawarea one or two tiles bigger than the playarea and use a scrolloffset to draw the tiles/units.

But this is if you write your own engine...if you're using someone's elses, I can't help you. try contacting the author.

Peace!
