Oops!!! v0.5alphaby Blue Steel - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Now up to v0.7Alpha: most of the bugs should now be gone,
Timer seems to be working properly
Key presses(fixed) and now with mouse button support for input
intermittent Crashes on starting a new game
Dropped Time bonus back to 1 sec for placing a block
Edited first run screen so now it doesn't say game over until you played
Added reason why you lost the game (time or block)
Changed Speed that the Blocks move across the screen depending on your score (low score slow, high score faster) on a sliding scale
Still to come:
Title Renaming when you get the high score.(If i can work out how to do it, I thought i knew but a can't repeat it.. and can't remember how i did it :( )
Official Entry OOPS!!!0.5alpha
Updated .zip file to fix typo and add in correct source files(i had an older backup of the source files.. which were missing some files , namely keyboard.java and mouse.java)
game now no longer closes the screen straight away when you loose. just sites there with timer ticking down , so that you can see your final score. to restart you need to close and re-run still.
Left like this as to not to break contest rules.. will be improving the game when voting is finished

How many Colored blocks can you send up the screen in 10 seconds?
There's a CATCH. you can't place the same colored boxes horizontally or vertically torching each other
To launch Blocks up the screen press any key
For every block you place you gain a in score and time by one second ( thinking of increasing that to two to three seconds) every block that goes off the edge of the screen your score drops by one and your Time drops by an extra second. I'll also be adding an opening screen and a game over screen at the moment it starts you in the game proper and it quits to system when Game is over.
If I get time I'll be adding in Sound and High Scores also if I get time I'll also be adding in that you can change the Title of the game. This feature will be to record for Prosperity your First word or thought when you lost the game after beating the high score ;)
Posting it up early in case i don't get time to do any more ;)
Enjoy and Vote.

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.
