Aside from FPSC and some "Atari Basic" games I wrote for my girls in the 80's, this is my first attempt at a 2d game. You'll notice the glitchy nature of Visual Basic with even the simplest of graphics. Perhaps some of you can give me some pointers/tips. I normally don't do any kind of graphics coding. Anyway, the little game is attached. It's a kids game, probably around 4-10 years of age? Try it if you dare!

Haven't tried the game, but the graphics look great!

Thanks LBFN but... I didn't make the graphics. I'm just looking for feedback on the game play and VB if anyone else here uses it. Obviously there are better engines for this than VB, but it's what I know - just not about using it for graphics.

I've pretty much taken the "trails" issue out of the equation by converting to click only instead of click and drag. I'm still working out some "blinking" issues when the forms load, but I think it will be usable in the end.

I would like to hear thoughts on the flow, if it makes sense in terms of progression, age appropriateness, and variations on the theme. I would like to make a variety of "Pic-Click Adventures" if I can get them to run smooth and play well.
