I work in education environment teaching at a secondary school social sciences like Economics and Business but have always been interested in computing and java programming. I have been running an after school enrichment in java programming.
So far I have been teaching fundamentals of java programming like Boolean logic, loops, classes and arrays.
I want to revamp my resources so it appeals to more KS3 students who wish to go straight into game developing.
Is there any open source/shareware java games with graphics front end? I want the game to have graphical front end from the start so all I teach the students is game logic via “if statement”, “Boolean logic” etc.
Typical games I am thinking of are Java Pac man game, java spaceship game, java maze game, java arcade type game however it must have a graphical interface.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

A long time ago I extended someone else's Tetris game with additional features - you can find the result (including the GPL'ed source code) at http://www.ulfdittmer.com/tetris/. It runs both as an applet or as an application. Feel free to ask any questions.
