    I want to make a game kind of like this but even simpler

    This seems to me atleast a rather hard game to start with. Minesweeper might be an easier start to get familiar with GUI's.

    Don't run before you can walk. I was the same when I first started to code, but I promise you if you're truely serious about learning then it's always better to start simple and build up.

    Even if you can do something complicated first time, I guarantee by the end you won't remember how you did half of it without looking back on the code. Doing simple things and progressing into harder things makes concepts stick and is better practice.

    Anyway, rant over. There's plenty of tutorials on the Internet covering simple game creation. Just punch something like "Writing games" + Java into Google..
    And you get stuff like this:
