Looking good. The controls are smooth. Will there be an option for two players?

Ooh, nice. I can imagine how fun it'll be when there are enemies in place. Smiley

Hello ShannonSmith,

Ran on all:
                   Acer Aspire 5740, Windows 7 , Internet Explorer, jdk1.6.0_20
                   Mac Mini, Snow Leopard OS X, Safari, jdk 1.6.0_20
                   Suse 10 (Virtual Machine), firefox, jdk 1.6.0_19
                   HP Compaq 6820, Fedora 8, Firefox, jdk 1.6.0_04

No problems found. I'll be very interested in the way you will be handling
multiplayer as I'm struggling with that at the moment.

Best regards from

Added second tank (not hooked up to keyboard yet), and randomly moving spawning enemies.

multiplayer as I'm struggling with that at the moment.

It will be simultaneous multi-player using the same keyboard, not networked.

I'm pretty much done. I might get a chance to add a few more levels (only 5 at the moment).

Player 1 Controls = Arrow Keys + SPACE
Player 2 Controls = WASD + F

That's a cool little arcade game!

I haven't been able to try it with two players yet.  But I did find that I could hold down Player 2's fire key while controlling Player 1 to give myself a bit of covering fire.  Roll Eyes
