1  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2013 / Re: Judging panel results. on: 2013-03-26 22:43:54
All of us should respect others point of view even if it is completely different than our.
Do not be intimidated judges, I appreciate your work.
And remeber this is only fun:).

In my opinion there will be no perfect solution for judging.
The idea of judging and community voting with giving feedback is realy good.

We can describe the problem in this way: how to avoid wrong positioning in case if of the rate is completely different than other.
Maybe we should try e.g. expected value rather than arithmetic mean of all scores

But there still will be only smoothing:)
2  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2013 / Re: Behind the wall of sleep on: 2013-03-20 22:12:47
this is correct solution:)
Thanks guys, this is very nice.

In previous version of this game shifting time was possible back and forward, but finally I decided to only to shifting time back, and instead of this add more levels.

Maybe in next year I will do this...Smiley.

Earlier I didn't pay much attention to this game, but now I have found this game very funny which inspired me to a new idea.
Good job.

... thanks for medal, now I have noticed:)
5  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2013 / Re: Behind the wall of sleep on: 2013-02-28 14:06:46
Thanks for trying my game.

I will fix the problem as fast as it will be possible.
6  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2013 / Re: Community Voting starts March 1st! on: 2013-02-28 14:02:52
I like this idea
7  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2013 / Re: tiny_world on: 2013-02-27 22:46:29
haha, very nice game. I like this kind of games.
You have my vote Grin

Hello fellows.

Last few months weren't easy. I had a lot work to do and not so much time, but finally i finished my game.
Look for "Behind the wall of sleep" on

Have a nice fun

so many ideas, so little time..., so little space...!

Hello fellows

12  Java Game APIs & Engines / Android / SantaClaus on Android on: 2012-07-12 12:59:16
Hello fellows

I adapted my game SantaClaus to Android  Smiley.
SantaClaus was submited to java4k 2011 competition and later totaly rewritten - see
You can try the signed .apk by downloading from (it is not avaiable on android market).

It was tested on Galaxy Mini with android 2.2.
To control simply move your finger on the screen

Have a good fun.
13  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2012 / Re: Closed! :) on: 2012-03-08 09:13:07
Simple main rule: make game under 4kb in pure java, no other restrictions.
This is what i love this competition.
14  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2012 / compression factor on: 2012-01-17 11:14:12
Hello fellows.
During work on my 4k projects i have found that there is relationship between size (expressed in bytes ) of .class file (no signed and no MF specified) and size of compressed file (containing only one class and compressed on path javac->7z->proguard->JoGa->pack200->Kzip ) which can be expressed as:

y = size of compressed file
x = size of class file

(1) y=(x^P)*(e^R), where P=0,716 and R=1,532

Now we can define compression factor (CF) which is:

(2) CF=100-(y/x)*100

Here are diagrams

Now lets assume that R=2,14*P, where P I believe is factor which describes compression path. From diagrams above you can see that if P is decreasing CF is increasing.
If we someway can estimate value of P or approximate value of P based on its changes dependent of compression path we can more consciously impact on compression path e.g. adding more steps, removing some steps or repeating some steps.

Hello fellows
Finally the concept of my game crystallized, see the effects on
The title of the game is TruckMaze.
The game was also submitted to java4k 2012 contest.
16  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2012 / Re: Indiespot compression not working on: 2011-12-07 14:14:23
I additionally use JoGa after Proguard, it saves some bytes.
17  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2012 / Re: Cave4k on: 2011-11-13 20:27:09
Very nice looking game, keep working:)

Map or radar, to point out where to seek energyparticles , would be helpful.
18  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2012 / Re: 4K 2012 contest preliminaries on: 2011-11-12 23:49:20
It is challenge to write good remake, especially under 4 kb.
Let's imagine someone who wants to write chess game.
Chess have rigid rules, so there is not much room for creativity, but it is possible to write better engines, improve performance, graphics, reduce bugs, etc.

About the competition.
I like it very much and I have been waiting for another edition. Unfortunately for most part of the year there is nothing happening.
Maybe would be better to allow submit games all the year. From time to time start up a topic for programmers, or something like that, to keep motivation.
By the end of the year there would be judging of all games submitted during passing by year.
19  Games Center / Showcase / Re: IronTactics on: 2011-10-16 10:38:13
Very nice looking game. I have played against myself and enjoyed it:). Good work.
Maybe you should introduce registration for users to make easier looking for opponents. Logged users could wait in queue for play or choose their favorite opponents or challenge somebody to a game. Some stats would be also possible.
There is only one map?
20  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Trucker on: 2011-10-14 13:15:13
Yes!! It was exactly those game, Juggernaut. I just could not remind myself its name.
It was great game.
Thanks for commets and links, lot of inspiration.
It looks like I have to change concept of my game.
What do you think about Truckmargedon or Zombiesmasher:)?
21  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Trucker on: 2011-10-12 06:00:59
Than you for your comment.
I think in final version the controls will be slightly different, I would like to introduce mouse controls.
Now I'm working on map of city.
Trucker will get part in next Java4k competition, quiet lot of work before me to reduce some code:).
Wish me luck.
22  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Trucker on: 2011-10-08 12:09:08
Hello all.
I do not have much time to do what I really like (making java games Smiley), but there was some progress done.
See effects
SantaClaus was totally rebuild and I think now works fine.
Trucker was improved and there is a task added.

23  Games Center / Archived Projects / Trucker on: 2011-03-13 19:56:11
When I was teenager I played simple 2D truck simulator on Schneider machine (something like Comodore C64). It was simple and very fun game. I would like to do game like that one.
See my new concept:
24  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2011 / Re: SantaClaus on: 2011-01-09 15:51:05
Thank you for replay.
I am working on J4K 2D platform engine to put much more effort on level design and performance of the games.
The idea is that the elements on the screen displayed during play may be classified and tend  in general way, so it is possible to define all of them in one place, different elements for different games independently of engine.
SantaClaus runs on early version of this engine.

Wish me luck:)

25  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2011 / Re: SantaClaus on: 2010-12-31 12:13:10
You are right. Something strange is with gravity. Now I can see it.
Thanks for point at this problem. You know, when you test something and lunch the game hundred of times you just learn it with all its imperfections.
It looks that the engine needs to be rebuilt a little.

Does anybody win the game? How do  you judge it?

26  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2011 / SantaClaus on: 2010-12-30 13:05:03
Hello guys.
I invite everybody to try my new game SantaClaus -
This game will take part in 4K Game Competition.

Have a lot of fun:).

27  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: picadorstudio on: 2009-12-29 21:21:36
Try it again jojoh Smiley.
Now it runs much better.
28  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: picadorstudio on: 2009-12-29 10:26:05
Hello again.
Thank you for comments.
I apologize for all spelling mistakes, and I corrected them.
The unlucky phrase I corrected followed by h3ckboy suggestion.
I made use of arrow keys also.

Enjoy SilentHunter4K Smiley.
29  Games Center / Archived Projects / picadorstudio on: 2009-12-28 12:28:35
Hi all.
I invite everybody to my website with java games.
There is only one game Smiley and it is  part of Java4k competition.
Now I am working on strategic and economic game "Gas War".
From above thank you for constructive comments.

In my opinion the User's Guid should be in pdf file.
