COMPUTER BIBLE GAMES WITH VISUAL C# EXPRESS <Table of Contents> is a self-paced semester long self-study "beginning" programming tutorial consisting of 13 Chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Visual C# Express Windows applications and games. Students learn about project design, the Visual C# Express toolbox, and many elements of the Visual C# language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try.
The projects built include a number guessing game, a card game, an allowance calculator, a drawing program, a state capitals game, video games, and four Computer Bible Games. The Computer Bible Games include:
- Noah's Ark - Race the turtle to Noah's Ark before the Great Flood starts
- Elijah and the Ravens - Move Elijah to catch the falling bread as he is fed by the Ravens
- Daniel and the Lions - Shoot Prayers at the Lions to protect Daniel in the Lion's Den
We have also included the source code to several college prep bonus projects including a loan calculator, portfolio manager, and a checkbook balancer to get you ready for those college courses. For after-school fun we also added several classic David Ahl Basic Computer Games updated to Visual C#:
- Even Wins
- Lunar Lander!

is presented using a combination of over 700 pagesof course notes and actual Visual C# Express examples. No prior programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using Microsoft Windows is expected. A separate Teachers Guide is NOT required as the course is completely self-paced and self-learning. The book actually teaches the student to program so the parent does not need to learn programming or teach programming to the homeschool student.
The course requires Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista or Windows 7, ability to view and print documents saved in Microsoft Word format, and Visual C# 2010 Express (the course can also be completed using Visual C# Standard or Professional 2010). We have partnered with the Microsoft® DreamSpark® program to support and advance students learning and skills development, by providing high school students the latest developer and design software from Microsoft, at no additional cost.

"Third Day Games would be thrilled if every child who played our video games would learn how to develop Bible-based Christian video games themselves. BibleByte Books produces a wonderful Computer Science For Kids Curriculum that we believe will help train up the next generation of Christian game developers. The games industry desperately needs talented game developers, who are also Christians, to help build the next generation of Bible-based Christian video games. Learning a computer programming language early in life will give your child a great head start in the wonderful field of computer programming and give them the opportunity to use their skills to further the Kingdom." - Bobby Wells, CEO, Third Day Games "With no previous programming experience, I found that their Computer Programming Tutorials made computer programming both fun and easy to learn. Their customer service was also very eager to answer any questions that I might have. This combination of curriculum and customer service makes their tutorials attractive to both the Homeschool parent and their beginning student programmer." - Excerpt From the Homeschool.com
