This is a fairly straightforward question, what are some good projects for someone just getting into game programming? I've done a simple text based adventure game, and a tile-based shooter. I've done other things such as a text based tictactoe, but I don't really count that. Any reccomendations would be appreciated. Thanks

The most frequent ones that I've seen are clones of Arkanoid, Tetris and Pacman. Anyway, if you like reading books about game programming, they may propose (and explain) game projects.

I started with Pong, you can learn include basic rendering and image clipping (if you want animation), text bitmap rendering. You can also implement/learn all the basics design such as game loop, game states ect.

LazyFoo have some great SDL tutorials on these subjects
