Default new games programmer : space invaders


Hi,
I'm new to games programming and would like to create a simple space invaders type game.
Do I need to use multithreading to control the different objects visible on screen?
I've looked for the source code for such a game but haven't found any.

Thanks,
Sean.

At the top of the page are a number of menu items, and between "Free publications" and "Quick Links" you should see a "Search" item.
Type "invaders" in that and you should get a lot of hits, so you can see the type of questions others have asked, and issues. I'm sure that at least one of those threads has code illustrating some of the issues.
But, if you're just starting out, jumping into space invader type game is actually a pretty big leap. A better novice game to attempt would be a pong type game.
