I had to take a shot at it;

Kill pedestrians by getting close to them and hitting the space bar.
Get near a car and hit space to steal it.
Hit space to abandon a car.

Have fun! (tip: The cop car is by far the best  Wink )

There's 10 targets & you win if you kill them all - it's not easy!

That's bloody hard but good fun. Smiley You've squeezed an awful lot in, it really feels like the original GTA.

Cool game.
I found the controlling a little hard to get use too.
Maybe make it the cops have to stop you for 1 second or so to bust you.
I some how exited a car and got stuck a wall.

I would like to see the red guys fight back or somehow better then normal guys.
Guns? Smiley

Yeah.. Great quality as have come to expect from you now.. Always nice to have some mindless cold blooded violence fitted into 4K..
Just need the vice girls and it will be complete.  Was a bit hard, but will try again tomorrow.

Pretty awesome game. I got to $17. Smiley

EDIT: The difficulty ramp could use some fine tuning. It'd be cool if more polices started chasing you after you'd been violent, with less polices at the beginning of the game.

"Winner!" $128  Grin

I guess the police cars follow a set of waypoints dropped behind the path of your car?
I did a few laps of the city edge clockwise, then turned around and did a few laps counter-clockwise driving on the opposite pavement(sidewalk). Cops were just ignoring me =]

It would be cool to maybe make it like $17,000... $17 seems pretty damn  rinky-dink, and definitely not a reason to kill 10+ people. :-P

True. Life's worth more than that... You now get $10 for a passerby & $100 for a target.

*handy tip* kill the nearest pedestrian, wait for the cops then steal their car! Instant transport!  Grin

EDIT: Wow - I forgot Riven's pack200 utility - 230 bytes saved!

Very cool!

I get busted before I can even react sometimes. Maybe make a life bar or something? It doesn't feel like much of a fight with the cops. Just boom they roll up in front of you and game over. Maybe when the cops get you like they do now, instead of game over you have to try to get away on foot? Maybe they get out of their cars too and start shooting you?

If you could fit a pistol in there, that would be fantastic! Smiley

Don't forget the helicopter!

I got in a car and somehow popped inside of a building at the same time and couldn't get out. The police continuously circled the building, but were unable to get me, mwhaha. Smiley

Runs well for me.  Very nicely done.  I find the cars react well to my controls, it is only my bad play that makes me lose.

Thanks for comments guys!

@abuse: Well done! (I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've never actually managed it without cheating - AFAIK you're the only one to 'legally' finish the game!)
Should I post the cheat or would that spoil the fun?

@cero: Sorry about that! What version of java are you using?

@Markus_Persson: Jerky? Erm...  was there some background process running or something? Runs smoothly here and this machine's a dog!

That's very likely. I'm on mac, and this is my dev computer at work, running a jetty server and a mysql database.
However, other games aren't as jerky for me. It kinda blinked, like it was redoing the layout, and jerked.
Still, entertaining. =)

Wow, this really has that GTA feel.  I was doing Ok, splatting my marks then had a head on with a police car  Smiley
The frame rate was Ok (but not completely smooth) on this laptop (Core 2 Duo, but integrated graphics).
I might have to play again in a minute.

Couple of little tweaks added...
I'm blithely assuming that the pack.gz files are going to work! Is there any way to test them without actually setting up a server?

Actualy, I was wondering exactly the same thing today.

When I tested locally, I found that renaming the archive (to from xx.jar to xx.jar.gz in your <applet> tag) did not work..

However the below worked..  Except that it doesnt work if the L.jar file is not in the same directory (which brings me to think its not actually looking at the L.jar.gz version at all).. Hopefully some kind soul can clarify.

<applet archive="L.jar.gz" code="l.class"   width="800" height="550">
   <PARAM NAME="java_arguments" VALUE="-Djnlp.packEnabled=true" />
   <PARAM NAME="cache_archive" VALUE="L.jar" />
</applet>
