I made this game in less than a week (as a bonus game for my OAV Computer Science project) so there could be some bugs. But as far as I know, there aren't any. :p Please comment on this game and vote for it if you like it :) Though some pictures used in the game are ripped from other bomberman games, the complete source and it's logics are by me :)

Actually VB is much much better than Java. At least VB is native language; Java runs on a virtual machine. How fast you make the game depends on how you make it. :) (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
This game is actually a mini game that's part of a bigger project i am working on for my Computer Science OAC course. I just ripped this mini game out cause the big one isn't complete so it could be missing the sound files or the ImageButton class or another class. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Hmm really? OH well, I still prefer C++ over Java. :) (never did like VB or Java) Because in Java, there are things that happend that I don't want to happend, and I don't know why they're happening. That's strange, how could Java be faster than VB? Java runs on VM, everytime you start a Java App, it's gotta take time to start the VM first. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Visual Basic has a virtual machine as well, y'all. MSVBVM60.DLL, the big fat pig of a DLL that has to ship with each of your apps stands for 'MicroSoft Visual Basic Virtual Machine'. I'm a VB Programmer for the mostpart, but I gotta say, at least Java's VM is cross-platform... I'm thinking about adding Java to my repetoire, just to loosen MS's choke hold on me. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
WOW really? Actually, I don't program in VB, I only ran some VB games and they seem to be pretty fast. But then all VB appz load up pretty fast although they run on a VM. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Nice little game you got here =]. Well heres my response to everyone elses comments. Visual Basic is put to shame in the eyes of Java. Java can be compiled into bytecode, but it can also be translated from bytecode, into native code targeted at specific platforms. Now about C++ vrs Java. Java while being object oriented, and a nice little language, it is, and will always be a wanna be c++. C++ provides power, fully object oriented code (with real multiple inheritance not that silly interface nonsense) and platform inpendence with conditional compliation. Java while being better then BASIC, fails in comparision to C++. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I don't know. YOu should ask Ian--creator of this site. And I don't mind how you want to use my code as long as it's used for non-profit purposes. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I tried to use your code on my site, but for some reason I just can't get it to work. What do you think the problem is. On the webpage I put the source code as
but it doesn't work. What should the source code be? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)

This isn't an applet. It's an application. YOu can't use it on the web. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I'm not sure if it actually compiles java to native code, but I have a program called gcj on my linux box that can compile java code into a linux executable. A windo$e port may exist, but I haven't bothered to look. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
err.. i downloaded the code zip but... what do i do im not that experienced with java and html more vb, batch, boolean and qbasic anywayz getting to the point is there supposed to be a htm/html file or something coz there aint one ..? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Great game but uhhmmmmm....Aren't there like copyrights on the bomberman games? Doesn't Capcom own them? Just asking cuz this can put you in deep [crap] for copyright infringement... Oh well, not like there gonna notice this huh? lol peace~ (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Well, I believe so. But I didn't copy any of their pictures/sounds/or anything so it should be fine. I copied their concepts; and there is no law against copying concepts and ideas. :) (If there were, then there would exist only one car company, etc...) (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Ok... Let's go on with this endless language war... VB or Java? Java or C++? Well... I personally think that some languages are better suited for specific problems, but none goes over another to my eyes... The goal is to master one to a point where you can do almost anything with it. I program in Java, VB and C++. As one said here, Java can be compiled for a specific platform and will go fast enought for almost anything. There are diferences between Java and C++, but things can be as powerful as long as you do them the right way. VB? If you stick with the built in functions, it is in fact slower. But when dealing directly with Windows API (which were written in C/C++), you gain direct access and get almost as much speed as when used within C++. That's my opinion. Just be open minded and learn always better ways to do something. :-) (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
good neat work u have done sammy, i like it, i hope u dun mind if i use it (i will include ur name in the acknowledgement section). as for those who are arguing on which language is better, its useless to argue coz this argument has no end. iam a java freak but i know java is slow and its a fact all hardcore java programmers know abt.

is there any way at all that i can make this run on a website ? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)

I write VB, C++ and Java and I think Java is kinda cooler. It runs on VM and is still pretty fast. Loading Java applets takes less time than loading VB or C++. Forget the full power nonsense for C++, it actually pays to program in Java, it being platform independent. Your game was cool though (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Excellent, really great to see something like this in code, I'm just learning still and have loads to learn, about to start my final year to gain a BSc in Computing and am doing Advanced Programming - apparently I'll have to make a chat server in java ??? yikes ..... anyway - well done.... great code (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
