How to create your first gaming application using Python

Creating a Simple Pygame Window

To start creating a simple Pygame window, you need to import the necessary modules, initialize Pygame, set the window size, and create a game loop.

The game loop is responsible for keeping the window open and continuously updating it.

Within the game loop, you can handle events such as keyboard inputs, mouse clicks, and window

Pygame provides functions to handle these events, allowing you to create interactive elements in your game.

Additionally, you can use the available Pygame functions to update the game display by drawing graphics, images, and text onto the window surface.

This allows you to create a visually appealing and dynamic game environment.
Example Code:

import pygame

# Initialize Pygame


# Set the window size

window_size = (800, 600)

screen = pygame.display.set_mode(window_size)

# Create a game loop

running = True

while running:

for event in pygame.event.get():

if event.type == pygame.QUIT:

running = False

# Update the game display


# Quit Pygame


In the example code above, we import the necessary pygame module and initialize it.

Then, we set the window size using the pygame.display.set_mode() function. Next, we create a game loop that runs as long as the game is running.

Inside the game loop, we handle the quit event to close the window when the user clicks the close button.

Finally, we update the game display using the pygame.display.flip() function and quit pygame after the game loop is finished.
