The Allegro community, and the game programming community in general, enjoy competing with one another to create games. This article lists some of the competitions in which you can use Allegro to submit an entry.

A popular type of competition involves creating a game from little or nothing in a short time (typically two or three days). Generally, the competitions also provide a rule set or theme, generated at the competition start. Another type of challenge restricts source code with size requirements, and focus on ingenuity in the design of the code itself as much as on the actual game it produces.
