Hi! Sorry aeveis, I think it doesn't work with 64-bit. CherryNukaCola have you tried to execute from a command line? Tell me the error and I hope I can help you :).

We will upload a new version with Java 6 and compatibility with 64bits. By the way, this version should work in x64 with Java JRE 7 32bits.

Sorry for the current problems with the executable.

We are having problems with the new jar, because we want to do it compatible with linux as well. By the way, I confirm that there is no problem in Windows 7 Professional 64-bit if you use the JRE 7 32-bit.

Yes summaky, you tried the version for java 7. Please, try now the version for java 6.

There is now a new version for Java 6, please if you don't have Java 7, try this one.

The Windows JRE 6 version failed on Linux with Java 1.6.

It worked for me, I'm on windows xp with Java 7.

Are you using any Java 7 features? If not, you should consider sticking with Java 6 until more people have 7.

As for the game, the idea was fun, but the game seemed too unfair to really draw me in. I did really like the multiple death screens though. But you do have a working platform, which is great work for 48 hours.

And since this is java, why not offer it as an applet or a webstart? You'd definitely get more votes and comments. I offer free Java hosting at http://StaticVoidGames.com, which is a site that helps you create those versions automatically. Might be worth checking out.

Got a whole pile of "bit depth" exceptions, but it still ran. "Normal" was very difficult, but it seems like there are some collision bugs, so I didn't die so easily sometimes. I did get stuck below the bottom teeth at point as well. Innovative idea, but could use some bugfixes and some play balancing.
