I know this book is not of the newest kind, but it really helped me a lot getting into writing my own (simple) java engine:

EDIT : changed the URL to where you can actually get the book :-).

Grab either the Slick2D or LibGDX library, you'll be able to make something like that game in the video pretty quickly.

There was a game made for LudumDare a year ago that would be great for you to look at the game style is exactly the same. You can find it here, the source code was released with the game.
I believe it uses the Slick2D library, there is a lot of tutorials for Slick, a member of this site recently released a book about it that may be worth a look.

Here is a link to the post about the Slick book, if you offer him some money (over pay pal) i'm sure he will happily send you a digital copy.
