here is a tutorial on how to create a Collapse clone game. for those who may not be familiar with Collapse game, you can get a better understanding here.


However, unlike the more 'traditional' type
  • tiles appear from the top
  • you can click on 2 or more




There is no score, special effects or additional features in this version. It is user-friendly enough that one can add those on their own accord. The mechanics is easy to follow and tweak with annotations in the code.


Hope you enjoy and find this useful.  i will upload the .gmk file in the EDC section.

I am creating an update as a fully workable game. It will feature additional levels, additional tiles, special effects, a scoring system, a GUI and a dialog system.


The first release will be for Linux users. A windows version will follow later.


As an additional bonus, an ebook will also be published with step by step details on its creation, implementation of the game mechanics and conversion from tutorial to workable game.
