    Galaxian or Space invaders for my next game (read this)

    Ok, now that I have my tic tac toe game with 3 different difficulty levels that actually are different, I want to move on to my next project. I'm thinking about perhaps pong, space invaders or galaxian which would be a bit more difficult. What specific things should I learn to do galaxian or space invaders (what syntax)? I'm using direct x.

    you could make a space invaders/galaxian game without direct x or graphics using a simple array. the only thing you would have to figure out would be some sort of time loop to make the enimies move themselves.

    Aren't you jumping the gun a bit? Make a simple console game, then jump to windows! It is almost like going into a new programming language! Don't you want time to get good in console, so you can start windows more easily? I tried to do windows programming, but there is a bunch of crap you have to do just for one thing. And it crashes alot.
