    Default Game ideas please?

    Hi!

    I want to create Java games, simple, complex, games where I could apply OO concepts. Please give me some suggestions.

    Thanks! :):p:(

    I personally like logic games such as chess, tic-tac-toe or wari etc. This is an excellent opportunity to create a generic evaluator (alpha-beta pruning or Shannon-B strategy, self-learning heuristics, you name it), a plugable move generator and view of the game. That way you can make an unbeatable program, no matter what game it is playing. This project is on my private to-do list to tell you the truth (I haven't even started yet ;-)

    kind regards,

    Jos

    Ive been working on a tic-tac-toe game for the past 6 hours, got to finish the AI side. its not that hard so i would recommend starting with that :)
    Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight.

    Default Games!

    Hey clydedoris

    For a person trying to exercise OO, try a game like Asteroids or one like this. It will test your OO and you can use some nice mathematics if you want to.
    JosAH, I think learing algoritms would be a bit hardcore here. I haven't study them yet (aparently, they're not that difficult though), but for someone trying to practice OO: start simple. ;)

    Good luck with the game clydedoris! ;) Always fun to see some pictures if you can. :D

    Personally I do this, honestly I'm copping those. Take around some other stuff on the web. In your case, you can find lots of games on the web (flash games specially). Just play few of them, and while playing those keep your eye. Grab the concepts only.

    I read an article some time back about java gaming. This cleared my doubts on what to program games in java.

    GameDev.net -- How do I make games? A Path to Game Development

    java on game programming, is it a good language for games? take a look.
