Java Developer on the Weekends!


« Posted 2012-02-19 18:21:32 »

This is a small clone of the game 'Copter' in Java, using the Swing and AWT libraries. I made this in five hours over the weekend and I'm quite impressed with it. Enjoy! Since that time the game has been played by over a hundred people, featured in a YouTube video (hosted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQyUqWgcQ-g) and  its threads viewed by many more, leading me to attempt at improving the game. Read the 'more info' section for a detailed list of new features!

Screenshots

Above: The menu, 'nuff said.


Above: The smaller craft and the new coin system.

  • Avoid the walls, collect coins and try to get a good score!
  • Endless game-play, with randomized maps to play on
  • Space controls the player, Enter starts a game
  • Only 5.67KB!
  • Improved wall generation, and a far reduced chance of WOD's
  • Craft is smaller and more nimble!
  • Easter Egg Mode for those who like crashing!
  • Current Hi-Score has yet to be made!
  • Added Emeralds (blue squares, which give 69 coins)

Oh the nostalgia :')

Quite fun, but the level design starts off a bit too hard. I couldn't get a score bigger than 1000 :/

Haha, 200? The level design is entirely randomized, it depends on how it was generated. I managed 2500 after some practice. I'll probably make the level generator more spaced out when I get the chance, I was just impressed it worked so well.

The walls are not impossible, you have just not found a good way around them.

Even though it isn't perfect (some very tough spots), amazing for 5 hours work  Grin

Genius! Instead of acknowledging near impossible areas, just blame the player's incompetency Tongue
