What is JBomb ?
JBomb is a little Java game I have written for an university exam in May 2000. This is an academic project, however you can still be able to reap some fun out of it. Also you have full sources and documentation, albeit in Italian.
You cannot run JBomb in an applet if your browser doesn’t support Java.

Microsoft Internet Explorer compatibility issues
To have it suppor MSIE, some changes were made to the sources, before compiling&deploying the jar, to adapt them to the Microsoft JVM (which by default support only Java 1.1). First the use of LinkedList was removed using a ad-hoc replacement (EmulLinkedList, sources here). Then packages were removed, since apparently MS-JVM does not support them, though I’m pretty sure it was already a 1.1 feature.. maybe I’m doing something wrong, still I can’t believe I have to do so much work to support just a single JVM (albeit a so common JVM). It’s a shame MS has done a so poor JVM and, above all, that they’ve never updated it in so many years. In Windows 2000 you still have the same limits you had on Windows 95, and this is unbelievable.
