Vortex (game written in Java)

Post by Aaron » Thu May 19, 2011 1:04 am

One of the community colleges I attend recently had a programming competition. We were allowed to make pretty much whatever we wanted; the only real restrictions were the 2 week time limit and 2000 line code limit.

I decided to write a 2D Portal clone. I had a ton of fun and learned a lot during the process. I've included a link to the source, so if anyone has any comments, please be vocal! I would love to know what I can do to improve. All of the environment textures were made from images I grabbed off of http://www.cgtextures.com/, which is a great resource. I created the textures for the player/button myself (I'm a programmer, not an artist!)

For those who are only interested in playing the game, just download the Jar file and double click it to play. If you want to look at the source, the zip file has both the Java files and the Jar.

Edit: Thanks to sf17k for helping me figure out some of the mouse control issues!
