Java games rock!

« Posted 2005-04-04 07:14:11 »

hi i know very slight basics of java such as int, float, string and the groups and starting and ending, but that isn't much i was wondering if anyone could help me create a small basic game to try and help me learn as i have found i learn better from doing rather than reading.
thx asiddle423

well, considering you know only the slight basics, I suggest you do the following.

learn how to create an applet (provides an easy window to paint on)

paint circles

move 'em around

try to hit them with your mouse

this task requires no widget-creating (Applet is a window already and can be viewed by the appletviewer). You do some eventhandling and mousepolling and a little painting.

Ressources to perform this task can be found on the web. Start here, e.g.:

Just a starter, of course. Worked for me a few years ago.

It covers the Java 1.1 API but it's covers the game programming topics very good. Even have som advancd topics.

If you need to look up some regular Java API functions, I use this site:

Really good place to look up some basic stuff.
