I don't believe that at all. We're not here to do your work for you.

First page from googling "Python Games" http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=python+games

First link is: http://pygame.org/news.html

That link itself will tell you everything you need to know to start making games with PyGame and Python. I've used it myself quite extensively.

If you're starting out, I recommend Pygame (http://pygame.org) which is a fully featured 2D game module for Python.

It can be confusing to use at first, look at http://inventwithpython.com/chapter17.html for a feel of what it's like.

Yes, you can install pygame from the ubuntu repositories. I think the package name is python-pygame or something similar.

That's correct - Pygame is package python-pygame in the Ubuntu package repos.

I peronally learnt form this, and found it to be very clear, and giving you a grounding in python before moving on to text-based games, complicated text-based games, and finally an intereactive graphical game. Once you've read that, I suggest that you probably know enough to either:

-Build one from scratch.

-Get some libraries to make your game with.

All the best. ;)
