==== Description: ====
Noob-a-Tron is a proof of concept program which will eventually become a
full-featured 2d game. Noob-a-Tron exclusively uses c++, it also uses SDL2
(the only required library, see The current purpose of this
project is to help beginners understand c++ games programming in Linux. c++ is
not as scary as it's often claimed! The advantage of my project is that it's
fresh; whereas many Linux game projects are 10 or 15 years old. Noob-a-Tron is
a 2016/2017 project which uses c++11 features like "ranged for-loops". The
graphics are primitive but they are original (my own content). To compile
Noob-a-Tron you must use the -std=c++11 parameter and don't forget to link
SDL2! Noob-a-Tron uses the K&R code style and anyone can ask questions by
emailing me. I have measured the CPU efficiency of this code and it will not
eat 50% of your CPU while idle (though previous versions did hahaha). This
project was restarted about a dozen times throughout 2016 so it's pretty clean
