Animation/Games in Java

Java can be applied to many uses. However, one of the most fun applications of Java is to use it to create small animated applets.


In this series of articles I will show you how to create animated Java apples. Some of them will be non-interactive, such as a background animated display. Others will be fully interactive, such as a video game. I will begin from the very beginning and explain the basics of Java 2D animation, and end the series with complex applet-based video games.
