This game happens to be the first real program that I wrote in Java. At the time, the virtual machines that were in the browsers were interpreted, with the Just-In-time compilers that are common today just starting to appear. When I looked over my code I could clearly see the C++ background that I came from. This particular game was chosen as I though it would be simple enough to do yet was complex enough to cover all the aspects of java programming that I would encounter.
The goal of this game is to create a row, column, or diagonal of connected chips of your color with a length of four or more. Each turn you drop a chip down one of the chutes (number of chutes and rows in each chute are selectable) with your opponent doing likewise. The first player to get four in a row wins.Copyright © 2010,2018 Billy D. Spelchan
