Kryp

 

The game of Kryp

Many years ago I made a computer game that I called Kryp (Norwegian for creeps). That was the time when DOS was the operating system, the PCs were slow and Borland Turbo C was the programming language. Now I have reimplemented the game in Java together with my oldest son Anders. 

The game is for one or two persons. The goal is to steer your creep to hit the target creep in the head. You steer the creeps with the keyboard: 'z', 'x', ',' (comma) og '.' (period). 

If the game does not start, you have probably got a too old browser. If nothing happens, your browser does not support Java. "Cannot load ...,Class" indicates too old Java support.The latest versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer works fine. 

NB! The game is not finished yet. We update it regularely. Suggestiones for improvements are welcome.

Spillet Kryp

For mange år siden lagde jeg et PC-spill som jeg kalte Kryp. Det var den gangen DOS var operativsystemet, PC-ene langsomme og Borland Turbo C var programmeringsspråket. Nå har jeg sammen med min eldste sønn Anders laget spillet på nytt i programmeringsspråket Java. 

Spillet er for en eller to personer og går ut på å styre hvert sitt kryp, slik at det treffer målkrypet. Du styrer krypene med tastaturet: 'z', 'x', ',' (komma) og '.' (punktum). 

Hvis spillet ikke starter, har du sannsynligvis for gammel nettleser. Hvis ingenting skjer, har du antakelig ikke Javastøtte i nettleseren din. "Cannot load ....Class" indikerer for gammel Java-støtte. De nyeste versjonene av Netscape og Internet Explorer virker bra. 

NB! Spillet er ikke ferdig ennå. Det blir stadig oppdatert. Vi er takknemlige for hint til forbedringer. 

 
 

Download instructions

If the game runs well over the Internet, you can install it on your hard-disk and run it from there as well. The procedure is as follows:
  1. Download this file:  Kryp.zip  and extract at least the files "Kryp2.jar" and "Kryp-main.htm" to a directory on your hard-disk. 
  2. Run the game by opening your local copy of  "Kryp-main.htm" in your browser. You can use "File Open" or double-click the file.

Source code

We have developed Kryp in Symantec's Visual Cafe 2.0. The Java source code consists of two files "Applet1.java" and "KrypFrame.java" which are also in  Kryp.zip
