During the summer I spent a few weeks looking into XNA because I decided if I love playing video games so much maybe I should try writing one. After few trips on the train reading XNA Game Programming, I realised I should stick to what I know and try building something in Flash first. The result is Doodle Wars, a simple Geometry Wars style shooter.
I plan on tidying up the code and doing a post about how the game works, because in writing it I have learned a great deal about how to structure a game – in the end the principles I learned from XNA proved useful.
So give it a try!
