Wanting to make a simple 2D game

Wed Jan 15, 2014 10:15 pm

I want to make a simple 2D game such as air hockey or table tennis with a head as the puck/ball and my own sound clips etc.

I am totally new to programming but can anyone tell me the best/easiest was for a beginner to start with this?

Hi,

I learnt how to write games in python from this tutorial. It uses Python and PyGame both of which are pre-installed in Raspbain.

Start with this simple space invaders game and modify it to do your table tennis/pong clone.
