Show and Tell #5 - Porting a Silverlight game to XNA


Mads sent through a blog post yesterday about how his experiment on porting a game from Silverlight to XNA.

His starting point: a game called "We are Bugs" from Jeff Weber.

You can go and play it here. I'll wait.

Back? Great. So Jeff made the source code available a while ago, and Mads has experimented with porting the code to Silverlight in WP7 and then in XNA.

His results are up on GitHub for those who want to compare and contrast the differences.
