    And if you want to try making a small game with rudamentary graphics, but not go full OpenGL/DirectX, take a look at OLC pixel game engine. It's a one header graphics library that will allow you to draw simple shapes, text, etc. perfect for prototyping or making very simple games. Eventually you'll want to try making Pong to take your training to the next level, so this will be perfect for that.

  • How can I make graphics games using cpp?

    All you need is here. Just put the .h file in your project and you're done.

    But if you just want to create Tetris or Soduko I would actually recommend OLC pixel game engine. It's the absolute simplest graphics library you could possibly imagine. Just include one file and you're good to go, it takes less than 10 minutes to get something up on the screen. You can't create anything complex with it of course, but you just need to draw simple shapes and text on the screen so it's perfect for that.

    SFML isn't bad. But I had a lot of issues with it. If you want a super lightweight engine with basically only a minimal amount of functions and can get stuff drawn on the screen fast then I'd say Pixel Game Engine. Just a single .h file and you are good to go. There are extensions for it for more functions like game pad support. C++ only and it doesn't hold your hand or get in the way. https://github.com/OneLoneCoder/olcPixelGameEngine
