Total beginner, need extreme help
I was thinking about making a graphical game. A 2 player game, with no AI to make it easier to make. Both players are in ships, facing eachother on opposite ends, facing vertically, with room at the bottom for the score. You basicly shoot at eachother while moving side to side dodging the other players shot. And you guessed it, I am clueless. I did make a simple game, non graphical, with Dev C++, the free compiler, for I have no extra money to spend, and I made a guess the number game, an adlib, and a blackjack game, tho the code for each one is not complex at all, not even the blackjack one, I had to write A LOT of code for it. Now I'm thinking of making this game. I cannot take classes in programming, for I'm too young, and I cannot understand much without explanation. So I downloaded snaker from this website, and I looked at the code and OMG. I got lost in the confusion. What I need is some kind person to take me under their wing and explain how to draw the characters, and scores and such, and either explain everthing very well, or tell me the most simple, yet long way of doing it. I am limited to Dev-C++ or anyother free compiler. Please help me, I don't even know where to start. If you want me to, I can send you both my Fear Facter madlib, and/or my blackjack game, so you can see how much I know now. Or if you don't have the time to help me, please point me somewhere where I can get free help on this.
