I started making my own min projects. Moving things, checking collisions. I am a big fan about starting small. My fist game is done I am just making graphics for it now and i have only been here a week.
Ghost shooter tutorial is a very complete tutorial. Do the reading one not the video.

Here is a fun mini platform video demo. It is not s full tutorial but very informative.
Also I am VERY excited about deadeye making a new platform school tutorial. The one posted is outdated but he is amazing at platforms, and is updating it.
... any hint on time frame deadeye? Fans await
