Free graphics and sounds for your game! I recently needed to refresh my math a bit in order to detect the intersection of a line and a rectangle, or a line and a point.

For a 3d game this is the texture data that is projected on an object's surface - for a 2d game these are simply the objects and characters that bring your game to live. In both cases many images are required. While it is working at the beginning to use single images it has several disadvantages:
