Sample text

Game graphics can further be broken down into two elements: background graphics and interactive images, or sprites. Background Graphics Background graphics set the mood for a game. Usually, they define the environment in which the game world is set, and they provide a reference point for the user. Typically, background graphics are static, and represent objects that the user either cannot or rarely interacts with. For example, background graphics include the vehicle fuselage of a cockpit in a flight simulator, the radar control console casing in a real-time strategy game, or the surface over which puzzle pieces slide in a pattern matching game.

What should be in the loop? That depends on the specific game, and varies on an individual basis. However, most game loops perform similar functions. The game loop is examined more closely below. Game Ending The game ending module is responsible for reporting to the player their overall game performance. This can take many forms, from a simple display of high scores to a summary of several different game statistics, or even an ending animation displaying a different scenario dependent upon whether the user won or lost.

However, several of the more esoteric devices may provide a much more intuitive feel for the user, as opposed to using just a plain keyboard or mouse or joystick. Fortunately, most of these devices are accessed programmatically in a very standard way. This allows the developer to support several devices using the same code base, although some specialty devices may require slightly different coding methods to support their use. As stated above, it is a good practice to support a wide variety of peripheral input devices so that the user will have a choice as to which device feels the most comfortable.
