First: Welcome to JavaRanch, Mohamad.

Second: I hate to say, but
(a) That is far too much to comment on in a single thread.
(b) Nobody is going to download your code from a Mediafire link; let alone give you a critique on an entire application.

My suggestion: lower your horizons a bit and ask specific questions about small pieces of code - especially ones that you are having problems with.

Believe me, you'll get enough incidental comments about style (if we feel it's worth it) when you do.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Thank, Winston. Actually im requesting for feedback about the game playing. The games mean to teach/train/learn coding for beginner student. Or maybe im in wrong forums?
thanks again.

It teach maybe in sintactis way of java programming, like : how to deklare a variables, how to define/calls method, and to write it in a better way (identation). Maybe i should add a tutorial video to clearly explain this. Right now im looking toward making it covers the semantics side of programming by using runtime compiler library (janino). Thank you.

To learn all this, starting with a game, is not recommended.
Try to follow tutorials which may help you to learn all this.But definitely not this.

Thanks for your reply. This games means to give a deliberate practice about all possible case of say "declaring variables". In my class, ive find it hard to encourage my students to explore beyond whats covered in tutorial i give in class. This games create a necessity to search other cases, like my current class now, they are very aware of the many datatypes "byte, int, short, long, etc" and that differs from other types "float, double, char, String". Unlike my previous class that always (and maybe only know) uses int, float, and String to create a programs. Maybe this game cannot replace a well designed tutorials, but complement it with a drill to increase tutorial effectiveness and coverage. Thanks. Btw, sory if any mistypes/misuse words, im still learning English.

Do your students know about GUI?Swing, javaFX or anything?

Thank you, Ive just teach AWT & Swing intro this week. And the previous practicing method/constructor call does help. Im aware that method call/define, etc, is a prerequisite before taking my class, but after looking at my student skill level, i think i need to strengthen/refresh the basic skill first, before give my actual lesson. Thank you again.
