Hiya Grin

I have been doing Java at uni and know enough to try out programming some simple games, so I was hoping to get some advice on what to try out first and if there is any book reccomendations you have? Sorry if this is a random question!

Thanks alot,
Bex

Kev's space invaders tutorial is a good start. http://www.cokeandcode.com/spaceinvaderstutorial

As for books there's several out there.  I have David Brackeen's 'Developing games in Java'  Other folks like different books.  Best thing is to try to look at one in a bookshop if possible first.

i'll have to also recommend David Brackeen's 'Developing games in Java' its a most excellent intro to games with java and java2D. Also i really like the fact the book is kept simple and easy to read unlike lots of other java books out there.

Hi

Kev's tutorials are good for opengl, there are alternative techs, but this will depend on what sort of game you want to write, 2D or 3D, puzzle/adventure etc. Did you have anything in mind?. Start simple, I didn't and 8 years later i'm still working on it Smiley

U can also try Andrew Davidson's Killer game programming in Java. It is a nice book and u can get an online version for free-legal stuff Smiley

U can also try using some of 2d game frameworks....to get u rolling faster. I ve developed such a framework and [url]www.pixelppl.com/football.php[url] is developed using that framework. I ll be happy to share it Smiley

Good luck and have fun!

The tutorials on coke and code also cover Java2D - but I'd still say if you're a complete Java newbie then go to Brackeen's book - it has more detail and depth.
