    Default Using Anonymous Classes

    I was wondering if this made sense. I want to have a player Ship who has a skill called "Drain Bullet". This skill fires a bullet and will drain the health of a ship that the bullet hits.
    		Skill slowBullet = new Skill(10, 1, 5, "Drain Bullet") {
    			public void affect(Ship shooter) {
    				final Ship player = shooter;
    				Bullet bullet = new Bullet(BulletType.PLAYER, shooter, 10, -1, new Skill(0, 0, 0, "Drain Bullet") {
    					public void affect(Ship target) {
    I will be polling for for bullet collision in the Game class, and I want it so when it calls
    bullet.affect(enemy); // enemy is the ship that gets hit by the bullet
    the Player will heal, and the enemy will take damage.
    Does this code actually make sense? Seems really confusing and I don't know if it will work.

    Neither do we. That is why there is this concept called "testing".

    You're nesting an anonymous class inside an anonymous class... that looks pretty smelly to me.

    Regardless of if it works or not I would consider re-thinking the code structure because it seems that Drain Bullet is a property/skill of the shooter, and there should be some sort of use/attack method which could take a target.
