learning to program java with games

learning to program java with games

learning to program java with games

I wish to teach Java programming to my young nephew. He wishes to go straight into game developing.

Is there any open source/shareware java games with graphics front end? I want the game to have graphical front end from the start so all I teach my nephew is game logic via “if statement”, “Boolean logic” etc.
Typical games I am thinking of are Java Pac man game, java spaceship game, java maze game, java arcade type game however it must have a graphical interface.

Please help if you can?
