Not a tutorial, but generally good for a reference book. I had some trouble understanding it because I just started programming and its gives you more control than Allegro 4. This isn't a bad thing but there could be a manual to go with this. I drew random shapes on the screen, played music and figured out how to draw and move a bitmap sprite using polling but I gave up on using the event method. I have the extras folder included with the source code and the Allegro Wiki but I find myself reading SDL and Allegro 4 tutorials to learn how to use Allegro 5. This has been more difficult than it should be. Its obviously worth it because Allegro 5 is a better API.
