I created this game for a school project, and this is my first game that I actually finished. Inspired by Super Crate Box. All the art in the game was done by me (except the background image and the explosion animation) and was my first attempt at pixel art.
Any feedback or criticism would be greatly appreciated; feel free to be as harsh as possible, I'd like to understand anything I did wrong with this game (comic sans was on purpose). I will release my source code in a couple days for any criticism of my source code as well.
Controls are in the game, but here it is for the lazy.
Arrow keys to move left and right.
Z Key - jump
X Key - shoot
Up and Down keys - traverse the menu screen
Enter - select from menu screen
Weapon details can be found under instructions
You can download the jar file and images here:
The images will need to be extracted to the same place as the jar file since I haven't exactly figured out how to bundle it with the jar file.http://www.mediafire.com/?ipfrbv312i1kise
