Woo Hoo, my first Java Applet!. HiLo is a very simple game which im sure everyone knows how to play. It's nothing very exciting (it's hardly Quake now is it) but it can become curiously addictive!, honest! :O). I have also included the source code to the Applet for all you Java coders out there if you are interested.

A Bit of History

HiLo was the first game I ever wrote about 5 years ago when I was still at college doing a computer studies course. The idea came whilst out one evening with some mates playing the sea front arcades at Southend-On-Sea. We were playing this arcade machine on which you can play this Higher/Lower card game and win money. As I was learning the Pascal programming language at college at the time, writing lots of extremely boring stuff, I thought it would make a nice change to write something fun for a change, so I did, check out these screen shots (1, 2, 3, 4), mind blowing stuff huh! :o). Here is the Pascal source code if anyone is interested.

To help me with learning Java I thought that I would write a Java version of the card game. If you have any comments or feedback, feel free to send me some email.
