Fun games programming intrduction any suggestions ??
November 28, 2011
Hi All - I'd like to see if anyone can help me with a bit of advice slightly off the robot mainstream, but I'm srue there are plenty who can help me
I remember in my early days struggling with basic on my commodore 64 and what fun it gave me to finally produce a basic game - akin now to struggling with BASIC for the STAMP.
My 11 year old - who is brighter than me and with a higher geek reating has been nagging me to find him a way to program his own computer game - he's very keen and staggeringly quick on the uptake - He reads steven Hawking and does algebra for fun, so he's a bit unusual for an 11 year old!
SO my question - can someone advise what I should start him off with as and introduction ?? I got rid of the commodore years ago and we now run windows vista. Surely there must be some tutorials around he could follow - I'd back him against anything that's design for an average 16 year old, so It can't be too dummy.
I'd welcome a bit of advice on how I get him a quick start with something useful that delivers gratifying results reasonably fast. I'll have to learn with him I'm afraid as my skills lie in different directions!
would really welcome your thoughts
