This my first official game, after many failures, I have managed to create an addictive ZERO PLAYER GAME.
A Zero player game has pretty much the same aspects as Conway's Game of Life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_Game_of_Life
. The Reason I created a zero player game is because I cannot use KeyListeners in an application like mine
. Regardless, it was a milestone for me, and I hope you enjoy.
The basic structure of the game is based on the end score. In the beginning of the game you will be prompted to choose the ships shields, health, and strength. The lower you choose your stats, the higher score you get in the end! Also you get better upgrades. However if you choose stats too low... you will die in the first few rounds...too high and you won't have enough upgrades to survive... You have to try and find a sweet spot that allows you to survive many rounds and get a good score.
When you die, you will see the score screen pop up. You may reply giving a screenshot of your scores, or you may write down everything you got. See if you can get past 200 rounds!
If you'd like, you may download it here: http://www.java-gaming.org/user-generated-content/members/152868/spacegame.jar
- Moved the download from mediafire to JavaGaming
- May have fixed a bug where images do not display.
To run it, you have to extract the SpaceGame.jar out of the zip file. Then open it with Java, not an Archiver.
