A friend of mine challenged me to make each game against him that was presented here in
this link (http://compsci.ca/blog/12-computer-science-game-project-ideas/).

My immediate reaction was "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!" But I thought that I should share this
with JGO and ask you guys what level of expertise are you? And do you too accept the
challenge?

After improving my programming architecture and implementation skills, I thought it would
be a good idea to start from the beginning in order to do reinforced learning and to see
how far I can get.

Currently, according to this website, i'd say that i'm at an intermediate stage.

Edit: At the end of the challenge, we agreed to show each other our source code and to
compare what we did in certain areas. To help improve our own programming skills and
to help each other.

Challenge is one way to motivate yourself, although I think it's in negative way because you're avoiding to be called loser or what.

I don't like making small "games". I either make graphics tests or bigger games, so I'd never accept a challenge to make a bigger game because I'm not going to spend a year or two on it if I don't have a lot of personal motivation.

Haha not sure why I would get negative responses, my aim is simply to gain experience. I always jump ahead of myself and end up getting stuck, so why not start with more simpler programs and progressively work my way up to more complex programs? I'm currently working on tetris and i'm having a bit of trouble. But i'll get there Smiley and nws ra4king

I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that it doesn't work for me. If it improves your motivation to finish the game then anything goes.

My advice would be to make small projects you can handle, and try to build your knowledge and projects from there. The challenges on that page look like an OK start, but may be tough if you're starting from scratch.

I recently completed a Tetris clone myself and I found this site to be very helpful.  http://tetrisconcept.net/wiki/Main_Page

It gives good deal of info on the underlying mechanics, could be useful if you find yourself getting stuck.
