  • jMonkeyEngine

    A complete 3-D game development suite written in Java.

  • It is, or at least was, efficient. Java has a great game engine called https://jmonkeyengine.org/ that at the time could compete with Unity, not sure the status now. And LWJGL, the lower layer for ooengl, was quite nice to use and it is efficient to go that low level if you plan to do a game that does not fit the stereotypes in such game engines, as you will find yourself fighting the engine more than the actual game.

  • micropolis

    Automatically exported from code.google.com/p/micropolis

  • LWJGL

    LWJGL is a Java library that enables cross-platform access to popular native APIs useful in the development of graphics (OpenGL, Vulkan, bgfx), audio (OpenAL, Opus), parallel computing (OpenCL, CUDA) and XR (OpenVR, LibOVR, OpenXR) applications.

  • It's still in Java, they mention in one of their blog posts they are using lwjgl.

  • pixel-dungeon

    Traditional roguelike game with pixel-art graphics and simple interface

  • pixel dungeon was written in java https://github.com/watabou/pixel-dungeon

  • beatoraja

    Cross-platform rhythm game based on Java and libGDX.

  • To my knowledge, Beatorja is the one rhythm game that runs on Java. It’s probably the best way to simulate Beatmania IIDX on Mac right now.

  • ultraworm

    Ultraworm - based on Revenge of the Titans

  • "Revenge of the titans", a tower defense-like game that was featured in one of the first humble bundles. It got its sources released and one of the mirrors (not sure how complete, there were several versions) is: https://github.com/kmeaw/ultraworm or mine, slightly more updated: https://github.com/janisozaur/ultraworm
