In this YouTube video tutorial series, I walk viewers through the programming of a Top Down Shooter game. The project is done step by step, with lengthier sections of programming spread out across multiple videos. The tutorial is still being added to regularly, and it covers numerous concepts that can be applied to any game you want to make.

This is the first video in the tutorial, and just discusses basic movement and turning in the direction of the mouse. The content becomes much more substantial very quickly though, with the following videos covering collisions, weapon swapping and pickup, basic enemy AI, ammo, reloading, and health. More videos are being added weekly! For the rest of the videos, click on the link to the playlist cited above after "Links".
