PyGame is a popular library for developing video games with Python which provides good support for 2D graphics, audio, user input and a number of useful utilities.
In this tutorial, I will cover the basics of writing a simple game using python and pygame, and explore Pygame's functionality. The tutorial will cover:
- The Pygame event system
- Drawing graphics to the screen
- Simple animations
- Sound and music support
- Pygame's Rect object and why you should embrace it
I will also discuss some of the pitfalls to be aware of when working with Pygame.
