i'm not sure if this has been posted before, but if you go to this site & dload the file, jgame-all.jar(1.5M), right click on it & set run-action as
Code:
java -jar "$@"
, then you have a bunch of games including...insecticide, munchies, caverns of fire & ramjet.

and, of course, it needs java installed.

Hello Muggins,
I'm loving all the games you keep posting so thank you for taking the time to find them.

Does the run command you posted to get these java games working, work on any java game downloaded from the web.
Do you know of any other websites that contain these java based games?

hi john,

java -jar "$@" should run any .jar file, although i have found some where it hasn't worked for some reason. i vaguely recall someone posting a link to 50 small java games, but i don't know of any other sites. i forgot that i usually avoid java like the plague, due to java apps gobbling up my ram, but realised the reason the above .jar file ran easily is that i've added an extra 250M ram!
