Zap the Boxes

by Insederec - Compo Entry

I'm having a lot of issues getting this game to work, but in order to play it you need to download the dropbox folder and then manually set the java security settings to allow the applet to run. Hopefully it should work then. Make sure to restart the browser in order for the settings to update.

The aim of the game is to protect your white (what would be a crystal if I could put images in it) thing. Zap the red boxes with the left mouse button; hold right mouse button to laser the blue boxes.

Not executable due to Java security issues.

You have to go to "configure java" in the start menu, then go to the security tab and enter the address from the address bar of the web browser to the list and restart the browser.

Next jam I'm definitely not using the applet like I did.

Very hard very hard and not very user friendly.

How much I hate Java...
Java just resets it's security options to [annoyingly paranoid crap] whenever I save medium.
Anyways, good luck and keep up the good work!

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 ( 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.
