Start developing media-rich, cross-platform games with C++ by exploring SFML.
Simple and Fast Multimedia Library, or SFML for short, is an easy-to-use API that allows programs to quickly access various multimedia components – such as graphics, audio, or similar. It is widely used for a variety of graphics-oriented applications due to its ability to draw objects on the screen, handle user input, and more. Additionally, as it is written in C++, it is both efficient and able to integrate seamlessly into C++ projects.
In this course, we’ll be taking a look at SFML and learn how to use it to develop a simple enemy clicker game. You will not only gain a strong understanding of how to use SFML to access graphics and audio for games, but also gain fundamental skills that will allow you to further progress in your knowledge of using C++ for game development.
You will learn how to:
- Install and set up SFML
- Draw sprites and text to the screen
- Play audio clips based on interactions
- Set up logic to detect player clicks
- Create a world to hold the game
- Implement an enemy and end game logic
… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
