Pretty broad question but here goes (this might be a newbie way, btw )

The first thing I would do is make a multidimensional array and fill it with numbers. Each numbers would represent a tile. I would then read each element of the array and pass it to a function to draw the tile. This function would use two "for" loops. It would loop through the y coordinates, drawing row by row.

I think it would go something like this:

  
int map[3][3] = {{1,1,1},
{1,0,0},
{1,0,1}};

for (int y = 0; y < 2; y++)
{
for (int x = 0; x < 2; x++)
{
DrawTile(map[x][y]);
}
}



That''s just the main idea. Play around with it and see if you can get a simple maze working or something
