i have been looking for a tutorial for beginners on how to write a simple game, like pong or tetris, outlining the major elements as i have no idea on how to go about it
is there such a tutorial? maybe even on this site???
NeHe is a good place to start for game development and OpenGL tutorials
I just had to make a simplified pong for a course.
