Which language for vga 256 dos games ? c / c++


I intend to develope a simple platform 2d VGA game under dos for my
computer programming studies project.
This game will be something in the style of "DAVE" (if you remember this game).
Which language do you suggest using: c or c++ ?
i mean, what will be more easy for me ?
Thanks in advance.


  • C on Borland Turbo C. It conforms well to the C standard (while Turbo C++ doesn't). You should be able to find Turbo C for free somewhere on the net... Borland released it for free some years before they sold off all their compiler business.
  • Try Visual C++ 2008 Express


    Its free and the IDE is great for debugging applications.
