It's been a while since I last visited Big Moose, but things doesn't seem to have changed much...
I currently work as a teacher in elementary programming (java, of course), and to motivate my students I am in the process of developing a basic game. My aim is to base part of my education around this game and make them recode, understand and analyse part and pieces of it (and make them realise that it is quite hard to make as simple a game as this, and MUCH harder to make a 3D shoot'em up...).
Before I do this, I would be happy to get as much input as possible from all of you out there! I know that the game violates about all of the OO rules, for example. And I am almost as certain that it can be modified to perform much faster, be more stable and work much better!
This way we can all learn something, I reckon? Does anybody think it's a good idea?
If so, I will jar the files together and post them ASAP. Does anybody know of a place to upload the jarfile so I can share it with you? Or can I post it here directly?
