These games were prepared by the students of Game Programming in Java courses at Cabrillo College. Many more excellent games were completed during the course, but these students decided to share their games with others.
Most games are executable JAR files which you install and run as follows:
- To install a game, click the link and download it to your computer "Desktop".
- To run, double-click the JAR file with a mouse.
- To "uninstall" a game, just delete the JAR file you downloaded
Each game has a README.txt file with more complete instructions for installing and playing the game. In addition, each game should have instructions in the game describing how to play.
