    Default Simple Java Game

    I am writing code for a simple java game. The problem I am running into is that I have a moving icon (J button) that is controlled using the keyboard (arrows) and I also have stationary icons (J button). Is there a way to keep the moving icon from passing over the stationary icon? I would like the stationary icon to act like a wall.

    I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Read up on detecting collisions between the two objects and then causing a reaction (change moving icon's direction).
