This is my first game that has actually made it to a... well... relatively playable stage.

I've used opengl for rendering (through LWJGL)...
Slick-util for texture loading...
My own text renderer that i made a while ago, which to be honest i was pretty pleased with (its pretty bad design though)
and not much else.

The aim of the game is to jump over the columns (not very exciting i know) and score the highest you can.
You get a point for every column you clear and the speed increases as the game goes on.

Controls are:
Space: Jump
Left Control: Dive(as in make your character go down fast)

Here's what it looks like.

The only textures i have are the columns but, i'll get there eventually.

You can download it here:
It should run pretty much out of the box but let me know if there's problems.

Your feedback, however constructive or in-constructive or insulting it is...... is much appreciated.  Smiley

UPDATE: Added a walking texture for "Mr Boots" and fixed the texture parameter problem with GL_NEAREST.

Very nice for a 1st game. It was quite fun.

The most obvious suggestion to me is to make it pretty. Put a nice paralax-scrolling background in maybe. You could make it a jungle theme and have totem poles or something.

Another thing you could do is add things you'd want to jump into like an hourglass that slows it a little bit. Or maybe really tall pillars with tiny platforms you need to land on to be high enough to make it.

Great job!

I can't download the game from the link. It says :

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Sorry, i changed the indexing settings for the folder and forgot to update the link.
I think i'll just leave indexing on to make it easier.

Just a small little bug, you might want to change what happens when you press both ctrl and space. But otherwise it's a good game. I would recommend what the others said, a scrolling background, maybe a theme. Theme suggestion: jumping over buildings!!!

What actually happens when you press control and space together? I tried it and could not see a problem...

I'm not sure about the consistency of this, but when in midair, when I press ctrl and then space, when it reaches the ground the character pauses for a moment, then continues.

Yeah, I've been working through figuring out what's going on with that, when the player seems to jump around slightly. I think its because of the way i move the player and then the camera around the player, which is causing it to do what it does, not only when you press ctrl but at other times too.
Anyway, i just did a website for all my stuff this weekend and didn't get around to working at it, but i certainly want to fix this annoying buggy thing.
