Hi, so as an excuse to learn Java (I currently only know Python), I would like to write a simple 2D web-based game. How would you recommend me doing this? Should I write the entire game from the ground up? Should I use a game engine?
If you would like me to be more specific, I would like to rewrite the classic old game "Block Dude" (introducted on the TI-83 calculator). You can find an example of what I would like to do here.
Thanks in advance.
