Hey there, everyone.
My friend and I are looking into writing a very simple game in Python. We're gonna use PyGame for it as well.
It's a top-down view 2D game where you play as a guy with an ax who kills zombies. There are not different levels; it's all on one level where the zombies continuously come until you die. It'll either score the player based on how many zombies he killed or how long he lasted, we don't know yet; but that's irrelevant for now.
What I needed to know is if anyone knew of any good places for me to start, or ant good tutorials for top-down games. I've looked on the PyGame site, but I haven't found anything good. I tried looking at the source of other top-down games from the PyGame site, but they don't have any that are close to what I'm trying to do.
I'm just not sure where to start. We're not worried about the graphics or sounds right now; all we're trying to do is get the skeleton and core engine down.
If anyone has any advice or previous experience with a project like this, all information is welcome and greatly appreciated!
