Well, its not really sdldoc's aim to teach people how to write games. If
you start getting into that then you don't know where to stop. SDL is
just an media layer API like ggi or svgalib, the documentation tells you
how to put something on the screen, play something through the speakers,
read something from the keyboard, etc. Anything else belongs in a games
programming book.
