Mixing C and C++

Okay, I am a new programmer who hasn't really done anything great. I have about the same amount of knowledge in both C and C++. Currently, I am thinking about writing a small little text-based game, just f*cking around. Do you guys consider it harmful to mix C and C++? I was thinking of just using what I know in C++ to create most of the data in classes and then use Curses and C for most of my functionality. What kind of damage will occur to me as a programmer from this and will the program suffer at all? Thank you.

Since C++ is backword compatible with C, when you mixed C and C++, your program would be considered as C++ program. I think there would be no particular damage but the result will be a poorly designed C++ program.
