Page Last Updated: April 2, 2010


This game happens to be the first real program that I wrote in Java. At the time, the virtual machines that were in the browsers were interpreted, with the Just-In-time compilers that are common today just starting to appear. When I looked over my code I could clearly see the C++ background that I came from. This particular game was chosen as I though it would be simple enough to do yet was complex enough to cover all the aspects of java programming that I would encounter.

System Requirements

Java version: This game is requires Java 1.1 or better to run. Browsers that support 1.1 tend to be 4.x or better versions. Windows XP users may have to download a Java plug in to use Java applets.

HTML 5 version: Requires a browser that supports the HTML 5 Canvas tag, though a library is being used to simulate teh canvas tag in Internet Explorer. JavaScript must be enabled for the game to work.


September 1997 - Original Java version

April 5, 2004 - 1.1 Java version for Blazing Games site

April 2, 2010 - HTML 5 edition written in JavaScript using the HTML 5 canvas.


Future HTML 5 versions are planned that will add animation an entirely new game mode to the game. Beyond that may be a multi-player version.
