For those of you who are relatively new to XNA Game Studio Express or who like learning all you can about Spacewar, Charles Cox and I have put together an article for the May issue of MSDN Magazine that’s also available on their website.
The article presents a high-level view of XNA Game Studio Express, and then walks through how to create a copy of Spacewar and modify the source to add new functionality to the game--in this case, a shield.
I hope you’ll check out the article, and I hope it helps you learn a little more about XNA Game Studio Express. If you enjoy the article, feel free to suggest other types of articles you’d like to see by leaving feedback on our blog.
