Making Games with Python & Pygame - 1

Al Sweigart (alsweigart)



"Making Games with Python & Pygame" is a free book that teaches the reader how to make games with the Pygame library. The book is aimed at beginner and intermediate Python programmers who have the basics of Python but want to start learning how to make games with graphics, animation, and sound.

The book features the source code to 11 games. These games are clones of classics such as Nibbles, Tetris, Simon, Bejeweled, Othello, Connect Four, Flood It, and others.

The book and the programs are open source, and are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license, meaning they are free to copy and distribute. A print copy can be bought on for $25.

I read the first book for free (Invent your own games with Python) and bought this on his release. I really recommend it for begginers like me. Al explains well and publishes online buuged programs for exercises.
Keep up the good job!
