VB Games and Fun Page


Welcome to the VB games and fun page!

A lot of people might think that VB is not a suitable programming language for games. Well, though there might be some limitations in VB regarding games programming and animation, we can actually construct  some very good games and fun programs in VB if we put in a lot of thought and time in it.  You can program casino games like slot machine, board games like snake and ladder chess, educational games , games that test your IQ, multimedia players and so on.

To design a game or fun program, we need to come out with an idea first, then we need to sit back and think over it. Ideas can be obtained through Internet, other media sources, and from gamers themselves etc.  After that , we need to write out a draft program and try it out. We should always  start with one small component of the program and if that  is working, then we should proceed to programme other components and then combine them together.  You should always have a VB book in hand for referencing, you can get a copy of Visual Basic 6 Made Easy , the instructions are clear and comprehensive.

Games programming is very satisfying if your programs work. Furthermore, you could learn a great deal of programming logics by doing game programming because the procedures are often very complex, you need to look up for references every now and then. I find that the book Step by Step VB6 is especially useful.

I have programmed all the following programs myself and I have also included their codes in text form. If you want the source codes, please email  me at liewvk@vbtutor.net or download the source codes from the main page by donating $2.00.  Your comments are welcome so that I can improve on these programmes.
