    An Idea For A Simple Game

    A friend and I are looking for ideas for a computer game to make. Nothing huge, something that could be done with 5 or so thousand lines of code. It would be 2D. But we need an idea. I'd welcome any suggestions.

    Thanks.

    a)a card game e.g. solitaire or begemeneighbour (not sure if its spelt like that, if you want me to expalin how to play it let me know) or you could do a pairs card game, where you have to pick to matching pairs.

    b) draughs

    scroots
    Spammers next time you spam me consider the implications:
    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    How about a tetris clone, or egawalls (like pong)

    or a small platform or arcade game like spce invaders
    I once tryed to make a small space game (like Life force on NES) in DirectX. But I gave it up real quick. Reason: I can't draw a single line . My artistic skills are zero.

    My first game was a small "Tank-like" game; developed in C back in the MS-DOS days ... good ol' DOS *sigh*

    anyway ... it was only like 1000 lines of code, and the graphics were simple.

    Plus - blowing stuff up is always a crowd pleaser ...

    Remake the tank combat from the game "COMBAT" (Atari 2600)?

    That was fun.

    That sounds like it has potential. I think we are gonna go with that idea. Thanks for all the suggestions.
