Applet : Javanoid V1.54, JDK1.1 compatible, by Rémi Faitout.
Controls : Javanoid supports both mouse and keyboard control. Keys are : Left & right to move the paddle, space or ctrl to launch the ball or shoot, N for new game, P to pause/resume the game, S to toggle sound on/off, U to change ball direction and 1 to 9 to change game speed (slowest fo fastest, default is 5). If keys don't work, click on the game to give it the focus.
The game : Javanoid is a twelve levels breakout game. The gray blocks must be hit three times, and the gold ones can't be destroyed. The blue pill gives you three balls, the red pill a shooting paddle, the green pill a sticky paddle, the yellow pill a larger paddle and the gray pill a smaller paddle. The orange pill either give you an extra ball, make balls go through the bricks or add a bonus to your score.
Technical notes : This version of Javanoid will only work with JDK1.1 compatible browsers. At moment, they are Sun Hotjava 1.0, Microsoft Intenet Explorer 4.0 & Netscape Navigator 4.04 with java patch. Otherwise, you'll have to use the JDK1.0 compatible version of Javanoid. Version information, bug issues and legal notes are described in the file readme.txt.
