Swing or AWT
posted 13 years ago
It really doesn't matter for Snake... basically you don't need lots of buttons, textfields, comboboxes, etc. You just need a blank area to draw your game on. I would just use AWT... it's simpler to learn and it's easier to make your game an Applet if you want to. Just extend Panel or Canvas and paint all your game graphics in the paint( Graphics g ) method.
