Philosophy of Gaming

Keep it simple. Fancy graphics don't equal greatness (although they would help). The Controls shouldn't be so complex you need the first level to be a tutorial, make them intuitive.
Keep it unbeatable. The games here don't have endings. They go on until you run out of lives and die. The only way to win is get your name on the high score list, which leads to the most important part of the philosophy, The only thing that matters is setting the high score.

08/28/2013 A brief foray into HTML5/Javascript. Astro Chicken is a remake of the arcade sequence from the classic Sierra adventure game Space Quest 3.

07/08/2012 Adding another Flash game, Puzzle Pong. It is the first game to feature a mute button, in case you find the piano music annoying.

04/22/2012 Breaking some new ground by adding Monkey Fracas Adventure, the first Flash game at The Java Arcade.

2/18/2012 Made some updates to the site, how do you like Consolas instead of Courier New?

12/13/2011 8 months? That can't be right. Just launched standalone site for an updated version of Super Mario Space Invaders, now maybe I can get back to working on something here.

04/17/2011 Added the first new game in quite some time Castlevania Pacman. I hope you enjoy it.

04/01/2011 April Fools Day! All of your high scores have been deleted! Serisously though, this is not a joke, we're starting from scratch.

06/30/2010 Added the new game Contra Duck Hunt. It's a classic NES mash-up of, you guessed it, Contra and Duck Hunt.

05/03/2010 Dephender 2 sucked so I fixed it up to try and make it suck less. It still sucks, just less. Also, I reset the high scores for it.

04/14/2010 Here's another Mashup. My all-time favourite NES game with my all-time favourite arcade game. Zelda Tapper. You may not understand the brilliance of what has occurred here, but nonetheless I assure you, it is brilliant.

02/02/2010 Here's a Groundhog's Day update for you all. Check out this classic gaming mashup Super Mario Space Invaders.

01/12/2010 If you'll look up above here, I've added the Top Arcade Gamer rankings. This is an overall ranking based on how many top 10 scores a player has recorded. This tally only kept for registered gamers, so if you haven't already, you should register your name now!

12/27/2009 I added the new game Frogger. It's fun and unoriginal.

12/08/2009 I added the new game Columns. It's colorful.

11/12/2009 I added the new game Missile Command. Clearly, I have run out of original ideas for games.

10/30/2009 Happy Halloween! I added the new game Centipede. Play it and enjoy it.

10/02/2009 I changed the way names and high scores are handled. If you've been here before you may notice the difference. Also I did a little update to Arcade Breakout which fixed a bug and added some new levels.

09/24/2009 Added the new game Super Monkey Fracas III. Thats right, another one. I'm contemplating making a Monkey Fracas Jr, but I think someone has already beaten me to it.

09/08/2009 Added the new game Java Tetris. Now you can prove to everyone just how good you are at Tetris.

08/01/2009 Added the new game Tennis Ball Blitz. Because tennis is awesome and !$#@ you if you disagree.

06/23/2009 Added the new game Nibbles. My version of the old QBasic classic. It makes me wonder where I'd be if I hadn't wasted my youth learning to program in BASIC... ugh.

06/14/2009 I did some tinkering with the way high scores are stored as well as reset the scores for the games. As a side note, guest names are limited to 10 characters, while registered names can be up to 15 characters. Suck it guests!

06/12/2009 Added the new game Zombie Basement II. By the sequel scale its on an Empire Strikes Back level when compared to the feebleness of the original Zombie Basement game.

03/26/2009 Added a new game called Feudal Lord. It is a very simple medieval strategy game.

02/27/2009 Added another new game... unfortunately it is a 100% unoriginal version of Simon. As a side note, the game (intentionally) goes donkey kong kill screen at level 666 and won't save your score... You've been warned.

02/22/2009 Today I packaged all of the games into JAR files because I could no longer remember my reasoning for not doing that in the first place.

02/19/2009 Added new game Colbert Vs Stewart. It's a fake news inspired Scorched Earth rip-off with a patriotic motif.

01/21/2009 Added a "Remember Me" option when logging in so that I won't have to type my password in everytime.

01/18/2009 Added new game Zombie Basement. It's my first attempt at a strategy/puzzle type game.

01/17/2009 Fixed some problems with the layout as well as some behind the scenes tweaking.

01/07/2009 Switched to drop down menus on the game pages to help prevent people from accidently navigating away while playing a game. Watch your aim people.

01/06/2009 Added New Game Questlevania: Chocula Hunter. Play it, leave a comment.

01/01/2009 New Year's resolution: post updates on the main page.

The games require the JAVA plug-in
(comes standard with Windows & OS X)
