Un moteur compatible avec la trilogie des jeux Jill (Jill of the jungle, Jill goes Underground, Jill save the Prince), par Emeric Martineau.
En Java (Swing).

OpenJill est un moteur compatible avec la trilogie des jeux Jill (Jill of the jungle, Jill goes Underground, Jill save the Prince, 1992, Epic Games).

Wikipedia :Jill of the Jungle est un jeu vidéo de plateforme qu'Epic Games a développé au commencement de son développement.

Jill est une femme en costume de bain vert fait d'une sorte de peau de crapeau à fourrure. Les créateurs ne précisent pas où on peut s'en procurer.

Puis elle se change, faisant le tour d'une garde-robe de bain; elle est tantôt en rouge, tantôt en bleu. Quand on est blonde, toutes les couleurs nous vont à merveille. Munie de bottes en fourrure, elle peut se permettre de sauter, sans compter que sa chevelure abondante lui prévient les maux de tête qu'un individu normal ne manquerait pas de se faire contre les blocs de pierre.

Sa quête est de libérer le prince charmant.

Il y a trois épisodes: la jungle, le sous-sol puis le pays d'un magicien. Ce dernier garde le charmant prisonnier, aidé par des lézards.

Jill peut accumuler des clefs, obtenir des couteaux et des scies rondes pour les projeter autour d'elle, tuer et détruire des obstacles. Souvent, les tableaux nécessitent réflexion; parfois simplement il faut les traverser sans que ne meure la dame. Heureusement, elle bénéficie d'un nombre de vies illimité, ce qui rend le jeu plus intéressant.

Wikipedia :Jill of the Jungle is a trilogy of platform computer games released in 1992 by Epic MegaGames. It was intended to rival computer games from other shareware companies such as id Software and Apogee Software. The three episodes in the trilogy are:

• Jill of the Jungle
• Jill Goes Underground
• Jill Saves the Prince

Though each game was initially released separately, the three were combined into Jill of the Jungle: The Complete Trilogy a year later.

Gameplay

Jill of the Jungle is a platform sidescroller which was released during the same period as Commander Keen and Duke Nukem. Players play as an Amazon woman who can use various types of weapons and enhancements as she progresses through levels slaying monsters and finding keys. The first episode in the trilogy contains 15 playable levels, including a bonus level, each of which can be entered from an overworld resembling another level. The second episode uses 20 sequential levels without an overworld. The third episode's overworld is a top-down perspective, changing to the traditional platformer style when entering one of the 15 levels. The game does not contain any boss fights.

Various puzzles include keys, transforming into different creatures, and making jumps among others. The same graphics are used in the trilogy, except that Jill's costume is recoloured in each episode (green in Episode 1, red in Episode 2, and blue in Episode 3). Every episode has several unique music tracks and sound effects but some songs and sounds are shared between two different episodes. In some specific cases, a sound effect remains the same through the entire trilogy. The sound for picking up an apple is an example of this. Jill of the Jungle also offered a "noisemaker", acting as a sound test, in which each sound effect in the game was mapped to each key of the keyboard.

"Le projet a commencé il y a deux ans et seul le premier niveau (et encore pas tout) fonctionne. Patience donc :-)"
