Grats to anyone that can beat it-it's definately on the hard side.

You should look into releasing it as an applet as you'll get more comments then Smiley

I've actually had a lot of trouble with applets using Slick, lots of bugs, freezing and not working on mac/linux. Any experience with this?

Maybe use Java Web Start instead of applets. I use Linux and I have rarely problems with applets, what you report is strange.

An example would be this: http://staff.washington.edu/shinyy/martygame.html
Sometimes it works fine, other times it freezes and even more weird sometimes the fps goes way out of wack.
Anyway, I was probably going to look into learning how to do that or possibly switching to flash(though I probably shouldn't talk about that here should I?  persecutioncomplex )

Game works fine in crappy school Windows XP and my own Windows 7 machines.
And nobody takes Flash seriously these days so stay with Java, it's the best! Cheesy

It's not anything bad, I promise  Smiley
I guess I also did some pretty bad stuff like using Scanner to read/write text save files though

It completely breaks if I try to switch over to a applet/webstart

You can't save files on the local operating system unless you sign your applet/webstart app.

i really don't get it why it has (always?) to get into such a whining about the applet/download thing! i assume downloading is a sacrilege and brings you straight to hell? Tongue

to give a little bit feedback on the game actually:
i like the graphics, the music and the sound too! nicely done! the game mechanics are promising to the point i got, what was sadly not far. what really bugged me is the complete lack of checkpoints. yes, i may be a pussy, but i really have no patience to play every time from start. especially not if the player moves so slowly!

couldn't you add some checkpoints? or is the full game then too easy? Wink
