Welcome to our index of XNA Tutorials! These tutorials focus on implementing some of the basics using XNA. While much of the code will be explained, these tutorials DO assume that the reader has some experience with the C# programming language.
If you're not already familiar with XNA, you can find more information at http://creators.xna.com
These tutorials require that you have installed
Microsoft Visual C# Express 2008 (or newer)
XNA Game Studio 3.1
Platformer Tutorial 1
The first tutorial of the Platformer Series. Gives health to the player and allows him to take damage and eventually die.
