Hi li qing,

I don't use JBuilder - but I might be able to give you a
few ideas anyways...

I assume, that your quite new to game programming and would
therefor recommend that you develop the game in iterations.

I would begin with an overall design of your sprites (monsters,
hero ect.)- eg. what kind of behaivior is shared by all sprites ?

Then I would take a look at the different kind of subclasses.

After making your Hero class I would try to get it to work with the
Canvas. Can you move the Hero move around on the Canvas?
Then I might try to extends his/her behaivior, so that (s)he can shoot
or whatever.

I would then add the Monster(s) and extend their behaivior in each
iteration.

I wouldn't concentrate to much on the graphics - it can always be added
later on.

ps. feel free to reply with more questions..
