Pygame tutorials

Recommended Posts

Recently I started reading Making Games with Python And Pygame via http://inventwithpython.com/pygame/chapters/ and it's a great book. However, I get to the third chapter (Memory Puzzle) and I feel like they suddenly add in extra features of pygame/python and they aren't explain ahead of time\ at all. Is there a better tutorial that I could use to learn pygame? Pretty much I'm to the point where I should be learning sprites, animation, and collision.

PS, I've searched around the internet for a while for a decent simple sprite tutorial and collision only to find either super advanced tutorials or ones that aren't finished. :(

I have a Python video tutorial series: [url="http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDFB7FFF90EE6F0C1"]link[/url].

Instead of pygame, I use [url="https://github.com/goranm/pslab"]pslab[/url], which is a small media library that I designed specifically for the series (although, it could be used to make a variety of different games).

... I'm not claiming it's better than pygame (in terms of features, it's definitely not), but pslab does feature a very small/simple API, which should be much easier for beginners to understand and use.

So, if you're interested, you could give that a try.

It's very likely that you missed out on some very important information, which would explain why you're stuck.

That, or maybe it's a design flaw in the tutorial, but you can only say that for sure if you don't skip anything. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]
