I'm looking for the source code for any popular 2D game. Possibly one of the old Ultimas. Basically I'm looking for something simple that I could understand. I already have the Quake 2 source, which I've just started looking over. Very interesting stuff, although I'm afraid it's too complex for me to actually learn anything (it's mostly the math that's giving me problems). So I'm looking for a simple, basic 2D game, possibly RPG/Action genre (ie; an old Ultima game). Language doesn't matter.. C/C++. I'm familiar with both. Thanks in advance. BTW, I would google, but I don't know what 2D commercial games offer source code. If someone could give me the names of a few commercial games that had their source code released, I'll be more than happy to google it myself.

Space Shooter. It's how I learned [smile].

I have read tutorials/books, and have made a few simple games myself (Blackjack and a space shooter of sorts). Right now I'm more interested in the games architecture, and I think commercial games would help me learn a bit more than your average day tutorial, since an actual game brings everything together and you can see how it fully interacts.

Thanks for all the links.. I'll take a look.
