    Hi guys,

    is there any _free_ Java API (standard or not) for building simple 2D
    games. I mean _very_ simple games, with educational purposes.

    I have read about the Game API of MIDP2.0 (package
    javax.microedition.lcdui.game). It seems quite nice. Can it be used in
    common PCs or is it exclusive for mobile devices?

    Thanx in advance,

    Tivo

    It's intended for mobile devices.

    There will be emulators for it at some stage - but it's probably not
    what you are after.

    Instead, maybe try:
