How hard is it to create a simple video game?


Recommended Posts

I have done programming in the past, IE COBOL Assembler etc... Never tried to code stuff for video games. Are the tools used today simplistic to make games? Was thinking of making a simple nhl94 like game. Any developers here?

COBOL and assembler? Wow, old-school!

I've never really made games, but I think Python is the easiest/fastest-to-use language around for general purpose things. Try checking out the google results for python game development:

Frameworks are popular these days, rather than coding things from scratch.

If you want to code for the iPhone, that's usually done with Objective-C. Android is Java, but can also be done with some kind of C/C++ using the NDK (native development kit).
