Asteroids in KPL and Game Development at Coding 4 Fun

The Coding 4 Fun web site has a lot of interesting things for students and for people programming as a hobby. A number of these are projects that use the Kid's Programming Language (also known as KPL) to write game programs. A friend of mine pointed out that there was an old fashioned Asteroids game example there. Asteroids is one of those games that looks simple but can take up hours and hours to master.

There is a whole game development section at Coding 4 Fun by the way. It has articles, sample code, webcasts and a whole lot of information about writing game programs in a number of languages. Besides KPL there is C# and Visual basic .NET just to name a few.

So if you are interested in writing games for fun, using game programming to teach computer science concepts or just want to stretch your programming muscles Coding 4 Fun may be a site you want to add to your favorites list. And oh yes, the site supports RSS so you can subscribe to keep on top of new things when they show up.
