I’ve worked with Java for over 15 years at this point developing enterprise systems, but I recently realized I’ve never done anything with 2d graphics, animation, and more specifically, I’d never developed a game. This is my first attempt to develop a simple platform type game (based on the Nintendo Game and Watch LCD game from the late 1980s). As part of developing the game I also developed a simple, generic 2d game framework which the game uses. I’ll share both on GitHub shorty.
Update 01/12/13: Given the recent security vulnerabilities with the Java Applet plugin I’ve removed the link to the applet version for now. The games does run also as a Java application – I’ll include a download link shortly.
