    Strange question.

    What exactly is "a game related to C++" ?

    Are you looking for the source code for a simple game written in C++?

    If so, it sounds like you're trying to get someone to do your homework for you.

    What are you on about? There is no game 'related' to C++, you can program 'simple' games in just about any language. Just use your imagination - for example, peg solitaire - Represent the board with chars and move the pieces by receivng a pair of coordinates for the pair you are 'picking up' and a pair for the destination of the peg.

    This could eventually evolve to using say SDL - where you can use graphics and select and move pieces with the mouse - still 'simple' relative to other games.

    Well i thought i might post this game from the screenshot - sorry no source code as i have lost it and only have an intermediate set of the files left :-<

    I do however have the complete game as it was when i last built it - It was quite neat to revisit, and i liked some of the touches i had added that had forgotten about, like loading preset start patterns (for easier completion / practice ) and ability to save up to three positions, also some of the animations(for which i can remember asking advice on these pages). Perhaps it is illustrative for the seeker of 'simple' games! - showing it takes a lot to even implement a graphics game that is based on a simple boardgame - where a console version would take very little time.. I dabbled in uploading it to google drive - this link should work for you, it is about 3.5 mb download, mainly because i had no idea at the time how to encode my graphics in binaries and the entire 'static' backgrounds are bmps, so pretty much everything in the zip is a dependancy, obviously the dlls.

    You should be able to download, unzip to the suggested folder and click the exe to run it -All art courtesy of windows textures, tweaked images from searches and lots of my arty work - wearing a beret, twirling a stick-on moustache and using artweaver cos i had not dabbled with GIMP enough at the time to feel confident with it! Its an ok game from a non game programmer, i loved making it - seems like an age ago.

    zip can be downloaded here - the page will show folder contents but if you choose the upper-left button 'file' you can select download from the context menu to get the zip

    tic-tac-toe is a semi-interesting challenge.

    I know Heroes of Newerth is coded in C++ so you can always try to make that game...

    I don't think Heroes of Newerth is a simple game to start off with. Perhaps in some years time it might be a good side project, but for a beginner... I don't think it's that good.

    What's your suggestion?

    I don't know. That's why I haven't suggested anything.
    Still, tic-tac-toe might be a good challenge for newbies. Especially one where you can generalize the size of the board.

    Tic-tac-toe isn't exactly 100% trivial. Have you done it?

    Yes, I have. If something is trivial, then it's no challenge. If there's no challenge, then you don't push your boundaries.

    Who said anything about AI? Besides, it's in Java, as was required by the college.

    So, it's not so trivial after all?

    Who said that AI was excluded?
