Real time, simple and fast action 2-D game.  Similar to Tecmo Bowl on

Definately, the more the merrier.  Actually, I was thinking of posting my
code here and getting feedback from the people on this list.  Sort of like
an interactive tutorial.  What do you guys think?  Is that something that
would be interesting/appropriate?

This is what I've tentatively decided on:
language: C++
graphics library: GGI
graphics programs: Pov-Ray for Sprites, maybe Gimp for static graphics
(title screens and such)
graphics file format: PNG
sound library:  GSI??? (similar to GGI, but for sound I think)

I'm pretty new at this, so if anyone has suggestions for better tools I'd
love to hear them.

>>ALos is there a homepage for the game.
Sadly, no, but I think there should be.

It's great to see some interest!
