Java AI Space Game (2007)

Currently the gameplay is very simplistic - ships, bullets and planets are represented by circles to make the collision detection code easier. Each ship can have individual weights and thrust, and fires identical bullets. Game constants such as the field size and whether gravity affects bullet trajectories can be set inside a unified file.
