Simple Video Games for Microsoft Windows

I have written a tutorial on how to write simple video games (no 3D-effects) on the Microsoft Windows platform using threads. The implementation is in C++ that provides a much better performance than Java. (Applets are particularly sluggish, not surprisingly). The tutorial includes code fragments that cover all the essential code of a sample game that is a variation of the sub-chase game. (Additions: subs can elude the bombs, and bomb eating "fish" protect the subs.) There is also a downloadable zipped executable.
