I happened to see Tricky Towers on "Dara O'Briain Goes 8-Bit" (anyone else watch that?).  I'd never seen it before, and since I was currently using JBox2D for various experiments, I decided to knock up a quick version called Toppling Towers.  Currently it's the bare-bones of a game, but it's multiplayer up to 3 people and pretty fun.

The game play is simple: be the first player to build a tower that crosses the finish line.

Full source is now available  at

This should "just work", and includes Eclipse project files.  I know how annoying it can be trying to get someone else's source code to work! </rant>

* Can handle PS4 controllers (and maybe X-Box but I don't have any to test)
* Uses a simple entity system
* Same-screen multiplayer
* Uses JBox2D

I've tried to compile using Eclipse and works like a charm, but why don't provide a build to anyone ?

Btw I have to try with someone else Cheesy

Err, laziness in all honesty!  And the fact there's always something else that needs doing.  I'll release something though.
