IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

Don't Smash The Vase - CryoGenesis - 48 Hour Compo Entry
If you get a class not found or class unsuported error you need to update your Java from:
My first Ludum Dare entry! You play a vase on wheels. You cannot move yourself, the only way you can move is but changing the pull of gravity. If you hit the walls too much you'll smash the vase.
Do this using the A and D keys. Feel free to edit the map, it's a .png file. If you make it to the end of the map it'll spawn ten lovely, little vases for you.
I used sfxr, GraphicsGale free, and Eclipse. It's written in Java and should work on every OS.
-Changed from pre-rendering map to active rendering due to -heap memory space problems
-Updated source code download link to latest
-Made an applet version for people who don't like downloading stuff
-Changed vase graphic. It has a potato in the middle now.
-Made the level pretty huge
--Instructions for editing the level--
Basically the level can be fully changed by editing the /res/maps/0.png image. The map is loaded by reading the image and depending on the RGB of the map, a wall is put, the player position is set or the exit is set.
Red of 1: Solid tile (wall)
Red of 0 or more than 1: blank tile (non-solid)
Green of 255: Player position (only put 1 of these)
Green of 100: Exit
I didn't add support for more than 1 map, unfortunately.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
