Recommended Posts

I just finished my first game (after taking a C++ programming class) and also thanks to the articles here at gamedev.net. I was just hoping I could get some feedback. The download URL is: http://www.students.uiuc.edu/~kaggarwa/k4setup.exe screenshot at: http://www.students.uiuc.edu/~kaggarwa/k4screenshot.jpg Thanks guys.

Downloaded it! Very impressed.

Not much else to say really. Um... the only thing for me was the key setup. I was pressing the down key to try and drop the blocks and I kept rotating them (too used to Tetris). Still my problem not yours.

One question. How long from beginning to learn programming to finishing your game?

Regards.

Well I took a C++ class in highschool (AP Computer Science) which lasted one semester. After the class was over, I started working on this game and finished it in about 2 weeks. That was last year. Then just a little while ago, I went back and added multiplayer support, fixed some bugs and added a few other features which took another week.

Well if you want it portable I recommend you use SDL, as your game is all in 2D. Don''t know about the multiplayer support though... is it DirectPlay or something else? Anyways, I recommend SDL, for it''s ease of use and OpenGL:ness (SDL uses OpenGL for 3d
