What level of difficulty do you need these articles to be? It will depend on how much previous experiance do you have.

In my opinion the best thing to do is learn about basic programming, and graphics manipulation first, then put them together to make such a game using your own inititive. Personally I have found just following a tutorial on how to make me a game doesn't help me learn, it just helps me follow tutorials...

depends on how good the tutorial is...


IMO, programming has a lot of problem solving involved. Tutorials ruin that opportunity to problem solve when the problems are somewhat simple. When you get to complicated problems, you are totally dependent on tutorials. I think tutorials should *only* give you the way to use the function and not make a game for you. But thats my opinion.

But for problems that you feel that you can't do I recommend posting on the forum. Not looking for a tutorial that makes the whole game for you.

I really (NO OFFENSE INTENDED), don't really care if tutorials do it for you. I think they are a good experience if detailed enough. They tell you what you're doing and give you something that works as a further reference, and when it does work, boosts confidence to give ya that umph to work hard. So just try to get me some links if possible plz. im not a good googler
