Arcade Game

This is an arcade game inspired by Pacman. It currently only contains 1 level, and the "Lives" counter does not work. This was developed for an intro-to-programming course I taught for high school students. I created the media in this game, and I encourage anyone to reuse them under a CC Attribution 3 license. Personally I recommend gutting nearly all of this project, keeping only the media and the SlidingActor class. (I may be open to creating similar artwork/sound effects if requested?) The AI was a challenge, because I wanted to develop something that presented a reasonable challenge but was also simple enough for beginning students to follow.

Not bad. I will have to take a look at the source a bit later. as for really simple AI I think I would have gone with something like, when you reach the center of the block pick a new random direction, but disallow simply going back the way you came. If you want it to give chase to the 'pacman' put heavier weight to the directions that take you closer to him, by closer I mean simply reduce the X or Y distance, not looking through the maze for shortest path. I like the graphics, the song is good, but would better fit a platform type game.


For some reason sometimes I can't move up/down/left/right, but it might just be me. :P


Thanks for the feedback LH. And EC: I see the same thing when I run this in the browser. Is this a browser/applet bug? It doesn't reproduce when I run this game in Greenfoot...?
