  • You can try to get this book Beginning .NET Game Programming in VB .NET  . You can download the source code for all the sample games in the book for free. But for advance game programming, you have to move from GDI+ to DirectX /XNA

    You can also try searching this forum for threads about developing games.  There should be quite a few!

  • what type of game do you wnat to develop? you have to bear in mind that visual basic has own limitation when using to develope games...

    if you waht to do something like "who wants to be a millionaire" - using questions and answers.... VB is realy good for that kind of game.

    Using database and working aroung it...

    so all the best for you.

  • You need to create a time dimension in the game to measure the speed of objects of you can reverse you game.

    Allow time to reverse.
