    Exclamation Making a new game, graphic.

    Code:
    main()
    {
    	char map[10][10], mapcolor[10][10];
    	int j, end;
    	HANDLE h;
    	h = GetStdHandle ( STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE );
    
    	for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
    	{
    		for(j=0;j<10;j++)
    		{
    		map[i][j] = (char)178;
    		}
    	}
    	for(i=0;i<4;i++)
    	{
    		for(j=0;j<4;j++)
    		{
    			mapcolor[i][j] = 1;
    		}
    	}
    	for(i=4;i<7;i++)
    	{
    		for(j=4;j<7;j++)
    		{
    			mapcolor[i][j] = 3;
    		}
    	}
    	for(i=0;i<10;i++)
    	{
    		for(j=0;j<10;j++)
    		{
    			switch(mapcolor[i][j])
    			{
    			case 1:
    				SetConsoleTextAttribute (h, FOREGROUND_BLUE);
    				cout<<map[i][j];
    				break;
    			case 3:
    				SetConsoleTextAttribute (h, FOREGROUND_GREEN);
    				cout<<map[i][j];
    				break;
    			default:
    				SetConsoleTextAttribute (h, FOREGROUND_RED);
    				cout<<map[i][j];
    				break;
    			}
    		}
    	cout<<"\n";
    	}
    	cin>>end;
    	return 0;
    }
