I thought both games were excellent! The platformer reminded a little of Mega Man, which is one of my all time favorite platform games.

I just started learning java (although, I've written a blackjack game, and a pong clone using C). About how long did it take you to write the platformer? I'm curious because after I finish my current project (asteroids), I plan on make a game similar to yours.

Oh, and keep up the great work!!

i like. it's one of those "so good i want to grade like a commerical endeavor" projects. i would simplify the controls, even after custom setup i found them confusing, but other than that it's awesome. ratings++

I checked out your web site, and it looks like the engine is free to dowload. The main advantage that I see to java is portability, and I always wanted to write a game that could run on almost any system. Are there any licensing restrictions on using your engine (does it cost anything to use it?)

That'd be cool, but I'd rather take the time to write my own.

Whoops what's that? Could not get display mode error...
I'll check it out, thanks for the report tjoink

Nope, it's totally free wyrzy, and there's no restriction to use the engine, you can use it freely.

Why don't you take a moment to check the engine heap.
Tell me what you think

Thanks everyone

Cool game(I only played the robotics war), I think my biggest critique qould be the jets. They just seem....too slow? I guess. I'd make them maybe more powerful, and just have less fuel. Or make the fuel take longer to re-charge.

Just seems like I was waiting an eternity to move up 3 pixels.

Other than that, really good. Fluid movements. No slowdown. Nice music and menu.
