Make a 3D Duck hunt, or a 3D shooter - sounds like you got 2D under control!

Or work on the checkers AI. Learn about trees... you make a tree of possible game outcomes given the possible moves (well some of the outcomes, and some of the moves) and choose the one that leads to the best position. Assign points to each checker, a king is worth double, if it''s in the corner (protected) it''s worth more... a peice that can be captured is worth half... etc.. pick the move that has the highest points for the CPU or lowest for the player...

Why don''t you make a 2d shooter? They are fun, if you have ever played Metal Slug for the Neo Geo. It is one of the funnest, best made games I have ever played. Just a thought.

I have a good idea. Make a strategy game. More exactly a tactical game. You command a squad and kill bad guis.

Yeah that would be original, I have never played a game where you kill Graphical User Interfaces.

If you like tactical/strategy games, go for one in 3d. I think that would be really cool. Not real-time either. Have turns and stuff. Like Panzer general.
