The Star Defense tutorial series guides you through the entire process of designing and building a game similar to the old arcade games "Stargate" and "Defender". The tutorial spans 12 parts, including game design, sprites, audio, explosions, player upgrades, and more.

The Tile Engine Tutorial is an updated version of the tutorial series which originally launched the XNAResources site.

The Sprite Engine Tutorial Series expands on the sprite engine introduced in Star Defense, adding frame-based animation, automatic rotation, waypoint following and other new features.

The Color Key Map tutorial demonstrates using an off-screen image to determine what parts of your game world the mouse is hovering over.
