    I am a Freshman at the University of Michigan and have just completed my first CS course. I used Programming Video Games as the basis for a class project. I built upon the author's basic code and created two project games with fairly complex levels or AI.

    It was a very valuable resource and I received an "A" in my course. An excellent course supplement... and fun!
