I have updated the Java code for my port of the old Super Star Trek game. I first wrote about this about a year ago. See “Java Version of Super Star Trek”.
This update has many bug fixes and enhancements, including support for a deathray, a special kind of beacon planet, an alien home world, and firing phasers and torpedos at up to three targets at once. The new code is available on the SST2k page on Wglxy.com.
Android App. I have built an Android app based on this Java code. The app is more than just destroying alien ships, which is the main objective of Super Star Trek. The app has a storyline about searching the galaxy for the aliens’ home world. If you would like to try that game, more information is available here: Beta Test for Double Star.

According to the Wikipedia article on the Star Trek text game, the SST2k project started in 2005. It is based on the C port of Tom Almy, which was done in the early 2000s.
A link to the Java source is provided. Continue reading
