Ive been Clicking for Years, I started with tgf and Moved into MMF, and Now Ive got MMF2,

in the years inbetween ive learned VB6, and VBA used in Excel and Access, and Produced Applications for work, anyone who has seen my crappy click project will know im no artist, and usually the Clicker I have as an artist bugs out part way into a project, and Thus I resorted to using Ripped gfx. and in Sk8ter boy, the Clicker who was the artist, who Ripped for me, showed me how to do half decent Paralax, not only perswaded me to drop Sk8terboy and start a Remake of Baddudes Vs Dragonninja with him, he then part ripped and bugged out AGAIN!

This all leaves me with Programmers block, Im having real trouble getting back into Clicking, after a long break playing l4d 1 and 2,

I got the first level of Baddudes, 1 or 2 player on the same keyboard, and the scrolling engine worked, then the first boss, and I kinda lost interest there...

Ive tried (last two Weeks) to start a new game, a Mixture of Peggle and Megaman, I was calling it Meggle, but I cant get the lead out of my pants and get into the coding...

anyone got any advice on moving forward, as starting Meggle, right away made me want to re-examine Baddudes, and Sk8ter boy, this time on my own...
but to quote robocop "Im having Trouble"

and I cant get over it,,

Start with something simpler than a game involving peggle-like movements.

Peggle is very hard to recreate. The pinball movement can be re-created with vectors, but I would have absolutely no clue how to go about making the ball bounce on the right objects and roll on the proper slopes etc.

To be honest, I was going to run with the Pinball Movement on the ball,

Maybe I need something simple as you say,

Like Frogger, or Jetpac, lol

I made a Peggle engine using Box2D (or was it Chipmunk?) which I recently submitted to that abandonware pack. Follow GamesterXIII's advice. Work on a small game and actually finish it. Then when you're confident with that, work on something bigger.
