Welcome to eclipse-games
The goal of this project is to provide several games as plugins for Eclipse IDE from the project. The plugins are well integrated in the IDE environment and provide amusement for development community.

This project was started to prove the concept about Eclipse extensibility under another Open Source project within, but after some time I decided to start my own project dedicated exclusively to games using Eclipse.

Eclipse overview

What is Eclipse?
Eclipse is a kind of universal tool platform - an open extensible IDE for anything and nothing in particular.
Find out what eclipse is all about - check out the white paper (requires Acrobat Reader 4.0 or later), read some technical articles, visit the newsgroups, take a look at the projects, and pick up the latest downloads. Don't forget to check out the Eclipse Project FAQ and on-line documentation. You can find out about eclipse-related events, projects, plug-ins and websites on the Community page.

What's New
March 21 - Version 3.2 has been released.(Download)
This version has been updated with an important fix. Games menu didn't work after Eclipse R3.1
November 3 - Version 3.1 has been released.(Download)
This version has been updated to the new Eclipse R3.x platform. It won't work with previous versions of the platform: 1.x and 2.x.
January 3 - Version 3.0.1 has been released.(Download)
Some users have reported problems with Sokoban (in version 3.0) on Linux platforms. It seems there was an encoding problem when serializing some objects which has been fixed in this version. The fix has changed the way level's information was stored, so that info will be reseted when this new version is installed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I am thinking to develop a migration tool which converts the old format into the new one (let's see how many people ask for it in the forums).
January 1 - Final version 3.0 has been released.(Download)

September 17 - Need your help to translate the games.
I have prepared the project to be i18n. But I need help with the translations. The game is in English by default, and currently I have just the Spanish translation (do you know where I come from?). I am interested on Portuguese, French, German and Italian. But any other language is welcomed. If anybody can/want help, please let me know and I will send him the files to translate. Thanks in advance.
