Ms. MIDP-Man

September 3, 2004.

This is a clone of the classic game Ms. Pac-Man, implemented for cell phones using the MIDP 2.0 mobile Java standard. Since this is an unauthorized version, I can't distribute it to people without violating a bunch of copyright laws. So you can't download it.

Instead, the purpose of this section is to serve as a kind of mini-tutorial on how to build mobile Java games. The Technical Stuff page explains many of the techniques and algorithms I used. And the Ingredients page has the complete source code, along with the graphics data and sound files in case people are interested.

On the left is an emulation of a SonyEricsson K700i, which in my opinion is the ideal platform for running the game. But it will work elsewhere too, at least after some tweaking and tuning. Click on the "screen" to start a game session and use the cursor keys to control the game character.
