Pygame wrapper for learners, jammers and educators

Project description

gamestart - a pygame wrapper for beginners and game jammers

This is a high level api wrapper for pygame, for making games with Python easier and quicker.

Heavily inspired by pygame-zero, Scratch, bitsbox, and game engines such as unity,
I think there is an opportunity to design a set of API both satisfy the need of beginners
and game makers who wish a quick result.

Some features:

  • some built-in assets for quick starting and code learning scenarios
  • draw loops are managed, so users can focus on actor and scene building

Quick minimal example

from gamestart import *

actor('monster')

start()

This draws a monster on the screen...

Why another pygame wrapper?

Why not pygame-zero

Gamestart takes over draw loop management. This makes user code shorter and allowing
future scene management features.

Gamestart also comes with some built-in asset, for starters and prototypers.

Gamestart games are run with just Python - it is an option for pygame-zero, but a default in gamestart

Why not processing.py

Gamestart is driven by Python, instead a Python-Java middle layer.

Gamestart manages the draw loop.

Some more examples

Look at the root folder - files like 1_quickstart.py are examples.
