    There's Allegro, SDL, OpenGL, and DirectX all of which you can use - some depend on what OS you're using though.

    If you wanna see how the pros did it in C, go here:

    *sigh* don't listen to him! the choice isn't all that big; in reality, all you need to choose between is Allegro, SDL, and Windows GDI. OpenGL/DirectX are too advanced for anybody without a firm grasp of C/c++. Then again, so are the others but they're a lot easier than those anyways.
    Just Google It. √
