JavaFX Asteroids with Greenfoot and SnapCode

This week I wrote a simple emulation library (4 classes) to run Greenfoot applications without modification in JavaFX and SnapCode. My test case is Asteroids for Greenfoot from their wonderful programming book.

The following 2 minute video shows loading the Asteroids project from a simple HTTP repository at and running Asteroids. At the end, there is even some Asteroids modding. 🙂

I haven’t done any performance work yet, but the game runs fine – even when I mod the game to fill the screen with asteroids. Check out the video below.
