Your own JAVA game

October 6, 2008 10:16am CST
Have you tried creating your own game using JAVA? If so, can you guys give tips because I'm planning to do so as well but I don't know where to start. I have a background on JAVA but to me, creating an actual game is another thing. So please, can anyone help me?

I've created a few small games in Java. As with any project, in any language - start small and work up. I would look up the Java Fullscreen API. Create a full screen frame, then get the graphics object for it. Create loop on the lines of: Check key events Game logic Draw to a buffered image Paint buffered image on the frame. Start small, so first get a full screen window that exits when you press say the escape key. The create a sprite, and display this. Then move the sprite with the arrow keys. will have some tutorials I think.
