Garbage Collector

This game has been made for a Java class final project.

Move Jones, the garbage collector, and collect garbages around the street. Put the garbage at the correct garbage can to win points.

Remember: grey is for organic garbage, green is for glass, yellow for metal and blue for paper, as the real life.

If you try to put wrong garbage in a recycle can, you won't earn points and more garbage will appear on the street, so be careful!

As time passes, more and more garbage are thrown in the streets, and Jones will need to hurry up to maintain the street clean and keep his job!

Help him out!

The game ends when the Garbage Meter gets full, indicating that the street
is very dirty and you weren't able to maintain it clean!

GARBAGE COLLECTOR is a instructive game that help us memorizing colors of recycle cans, and most important, remember us to recycle!

Notes: The game lags sometimes, I think because of random positioning threads until it finds an empty position. Or ironically because of the Garbage Collector from Java Virtual Machine.

Nice game! And it even teaches you something useful. You should consider submitting this scenario to CodePoint by adding the appropriate tag.


Thanks polle! Actually, I have so many features I wish to implement, like more types of garbage, more recycle cans, cars passing on the street for dodging, a crazy dog to run off, special items like a bag for collecting more garbage at the same time and even the possibility to call a garbage truck to make a massive cleanup. All this just to build up the challenge and fun, and maybe I can submit this game to Code Point, who knows... Unfortunately don't have the time to do these updates right now...


real cool


Cool game!! It may be best if you put a "menu", and an animation. Congratulations!
