Chris Bowen, a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft has compiled a list of Silverlight 1.0 & 1.1 games that are currently available, each (but one) with source:
- “Dr. Popper” [source] – Burst the matching bubbles, the more, the better.
- “Digger” [source] – Sort of Dig-Dug meets Montezuma’s Revenge.
- “Zero Gravity” [no source available yet] – An addictive and well-made game! A nice example of the possibilities of the platform.
- “Sprawl” [source] – A good demonstration of potential with Silverlight 1.0.
- “Destroy All Invaders” [source] – A cool mashup with Virtual Earth where you fly over the oblique angle view of a location of your choice while shooting UFOs.
- “Silverlight Rocks!” [source] – A shoot the asteroids game.
If you’re interested in learning more about game development with Silverlight, Bill Reiss has been working on a great series of tutorial posts on his Silverlight Games 101 blog. Start reading from the bottom first, where he start with a basic game canvas, then adds sprites, a game loop, keyboard input, etc.
