I have put a new sample game with source code up at XNADevelopment.com. This sample is a clone of the very popular cell phone game "Snake". It is one of those recommended starter games for new developers to get under their belt as they continue to take baby steps and spread their wings as game developers.




Move The Growing Creature But Do Not Collide was a blast to make and to keep it interesting for me, I did not develop it using the traditional grid based movement approach most Snake game clones use but instead did free range movement and controlled the "follow the leader" behavior of the tail using way points. Very fun.




Anyway, it's late, I'm tired so enjoy and I'm off to bed.

Move The Growing Creature But Do Not Collide has got to be one of the longer and more descriptive game names I have ever seen ;)

Gotta download it and check out the waypoints stuff you did with it.

Hey! So...someday I'll be sitting at a bar, drunk out of my skull, playing this game with my $1.00?
Kinda looks like "Centipede". I used to play that all the time.
