Welcome to Java4K.com

On this site you will find games that are maximum of 4KB in size, written in Java. Have fun playing them!

ANNOUNCEMENT
Unfortunatly there will be no 4K contest for the period Dec 2014 to Feb 2015, and beyond. The reality is that Java has been in decline for a long time and now it's almost impossible for ordinary people to play Java games on the web, which has resulted in developers losing interest in the Java ecosystem (at least for web/client/desktop related things).

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 4K contests over the years, the contest has been a seasonal highlight for many people, and I've enjoyed being the caretaker for the contest for all these years, but now that era is over.

The Java4k.com website will not go anywhere quite yet, the plan is to keep it alive for many years to come. Thanks all!
