A sample game application that uses Glide and VB.net

This simple demonstration shows the flexibly of .NET. GHI’s Glide library is a free graphics interface written in C#. @ jasuk70 is using the controls in glide to create a simple game that is then programmed in VB (Visual Basic).

The main reason for this code share is a distinct lack of examples of VB.net projects out there ;-).

The project is specifically aimed at the Fez Spider and requires the Glide dll’s to be added to enable it to compile. It used .net Micro Framework 4.2 and is Written in VB.net.

The attached images show the Gadgeteer Plumbing and a few of the Glide screen that was used. These were generated using the Designer on the GHI Website.

The main game view used three empty Text Blocks over the maze area of the window. These were wired to tap events to enable the player to move around the maze by touching different areas of the maze window.

This and all the different Glide Windows are shown in the video.

To use this project you will need the SD Card module and the Tyrannt.7z file that is included in the project extracted to the root of an SD Card and that card inserted into the module. It contains the graphics used in the game plus will also store your character details.[/quote]
