I'm not familiar with ncurses, but if you're looking for hardware accelerated rendering (for programming on the PC), then you could try SDL + OpenGL.
I think Raspberry PI has OpenGL ES support, but i'm not sure if SDL is supported in ARM processors, and if it can be used with OpenGL ES.

Ncurses is an UI library as far as I know, if you want to code games, go for allegro (that is an actually Game library) or some other (there is one named orx that is pretty cool, uses C as well).
If you are looking for problems to solve with C to learn it better, you should try some data structs, such as lists or trees, those ones will teach you a lot about pointers and how memory is handled.
