is it recomended to create games with rebol or would it be much easier to do it in a different language and only use rebol for what its best at (programming the internet).

While REBOL's graphics capabilities are adequate for simple 2D displays, writing a 1st person 3D shoot-em up type of game with dolby 5.1 quality sound is probably going to require something more low-level [like C or assembler]. ;) On the other hand, using REBOL's draw, effects and sound facilities is probaby sufficient for anything less demanding (a 3D chess program is well within reach). The REBOL script library has a number of simple game scripts (http://www.rebol.org/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/rebol/search.r?filter=games) which lets you see what can be done. Regards, Ashley<

Some of the better REBOL games aren't in the script library Doc Kimbel's reBOX Frank Sievertsen's Tetris Alan's card games (or at least I couldn't find them there). <

ReBOX with a scrolling world. So, yes, REBOL is great for games that don't require a high refresh rate on the display. -- Gregg
