How to make a game like Super Mario Bros in Java?

Posted 09 December 2011 - 06:57 PM

Well I am a programmer and I have moved from 5 years of gamemaker to C# and Java.
I have played around with XNA but I really want to make a 2d game in Java.
So I would like to know how I would go about doing this like could you give me a link to a good tutorial?

I would like you make a game similar to Super Mario Bros.

And I can use any library/framework you suggest.

Oh and how hard would it be to make a game like this?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Are you familiar with custom painting with Swing? Check out the Java Game Programming Thread for some good resources.

If you aren't comfortable with the Java GUI already, you might not be ready for this project. In general, if you don't know where to start on a project of this scope, you're really biting off too much. Make sure you have a good handle on the fundamentals before really diving head-first into game programming.
