Lonely Tennis

by Rockenez - 48 Hour Compo Entry


In this game you play tennis: with yourself!
This is my first LD entry.

Lonely Tennis was made in java.

Press SPACE to crouch. Release to
jump: time the jump to hit the ball.
Run to the other side, and repeat!

The game isn't loading. By the Java console log I guess you have compiled it for jre 1.7 and LWJGL applet expects 1.6. Tell me something via Twitter (@soy_yuma) if you fix it :-)

It gives this exception:
Exception: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/rockenez/alone/Board : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

Like soy_yuma said it seems you made your game Java7 which is avaiable to programmers but the runtime hasn't been widely released, so almost everyone is still running Java6

Now it's working perfectly (at least in my computer).

I think it's innovative (I'm tired of so much platform). It wasn't a big fun, but it was a nice surprise :-)

Okay, thanks :D. I actually started with a platformer, but I could'nt come up with a good gameplay to fit the theme...And then this crazy idea popped into my head :P

Nice idea! So simple it gets dull after a few volleys though...but it's finished, which is more than I can say for mine!

You should try make the ball follow different patterns (like if hit from below it describes an arc, if hit from above it bounces on the ground, etc). Original idea though, very good.

Haha, this was really cute. I had a good laugh, including at the details that make this nothing like tennis (net in the back, soccer field, ball is always going out of bounds? :))

That's an awesome idea! I really wanted to play this one. Unfortunately, I'm getting errors when trying to play it:

java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/rockenez/alone/Board : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0
