Thermonuclear Warby panda - Compo Entry
You race to the computer room, but you’re too late: the launch sequence for the nuclear missiles has already been initiated! As the numbers count down on the screen, you randomly try pressing buttons. And there, miracle! The computer responds.
To win, you have to hack the system to prevent global thermonuclear war.
Oh, there’s one little challenge: the screen doesn’t scroll. Once you get to the bottom, you’re stuck and that’s the end of it. You only have one screen.
The game has three levels, each deeper than the previous one. You can click on the bottom-left text to change the level.
P.S. Just in case someone is stuck and wants the extra help, I have posted a walkthrough for level 3 here:
edit: I put up a post-compo version that has much requested features: scrolling and tab completion! Yay! Tab completion only works on Firefox, other browsers seem not to forward the "tab" key to my code. Suggestions welcome! Play it at: http://decisive-triode-786.appspot.com/

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
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.
