Graphics and Sprites
« on: July 01, 2021, 07:17:48 pm »
Hi there!

I'm new to Pascal Programming, I program in C++ but what I wanted to do was a 2d game with FreePascal... Is it possible? I would like to have a complete documentation...

Thanks for the reply... :)

Yes, of course you can create 2D even 3D games using Free Pascal. Pascal syntax is easy to understand, I believe you will find doing games in Pascal is easier than in C++.

Have you consider to use Lazarus? Lazarus is a combination of Free Pascal Compiler + a powerful IDE + some useful units. It is a powerful combination to create games and GUI applications.

The documentation for doing games in Pascal is rare to find. Most of them only explain a small topic in game programming.

If you are new in Lazarus and interested to learn about some basic graphics tricks, try this:

If you want to see some simple games created using Lazarus/FPC, here:

And this is the game portal for Lazarus/FPC:
