    Tumbleweeds - A creative challenge with rewards

    Title: Aliens and Tumbleweeds   Scenario: You're on the outskirts of a mid West town that has been overrun by aliens installing technology to create their base. The town has been set up like a maze which you need to navigate to reach your objective for that level. Alien sentries are patrolling the town. Using tumbleweeds that are rolling around you can: 1. Use them as cover to avoid detection 2. Hurl them at aliens to temporarily blind them or 3. Set them alight to either burn aliens or create a diversion.   Objective: The final objective it to kill the alien leader and destroy their mother ship but along the way (levels) you would start by finding a weapon. Level two's objective could be to find a map. Other objectives could include obtaining matches, rescuing hostages, finding ammunition, upgrading weapons, sourcing whisky to make Molotov cocktails etc.   I'll just keep this idea simple. Could make for a fun app.

      ya, good but without learning c++ you need to go with using engines to power up your games and your game will be based on the engine, not in you own skill of programming Baby steps. Gotta walk before I can run :)

    Want to learn programming...again

    I've decided to go with C# as many people have pointed out here that for a beginner it's easier than c++. Someone also mentioned that C# goes hand in hand with unity and I am looking at learning that also. As my long term goal is to program for games this seems to be the logical choice.   Thanks once for for your invaluable suggestions and information.   Cheers, Rhino.

    Thanks again.   I've just downloaded Bloodshed Dev-C++ as it seemed to have the most hits in a search. Looking forward to reading the forums and learning from you all.

    Thanks for the prompt responses. What's the main differences between C# and C++? 
  7. Hi all,   I'm about to scrape the rust off my brain and learn to program for PC. I did some programming waaaaay back in the c64 days and would like to get back into it.   What's a good program to learn with and am I able to download it or do I need to purchase it? It doesn't need to be too basic as I tend to grasp things reasonably well.   If there are languages more geared towards creating games that would be preferred. I've been looking around but there are so many different answers I thought I would see if there was a general consensus here.   Thanks in advance for any advice.   Rhino.
