I am new to the video game world (as in creating them), but I am trying to figure out how to apply the the game image in my head to the screen. I understand C++ but how do I manipulate it to make a game like mrio. In other words how do I start,

do I make a game engine, if so HOW?
do Dark GDK, if so HOW?
or any other method, and if so HOW?

I know how to make sprites, charachers, story line ,etc.

Could anybody just please help me put these images on the screen.

So are you using Dark GDK? If so you may want to check the GDK boards, i'm sure you could find something useful there to start. Also try the search function.
