    Here's a game I've been working on recently and I thought you guys might like to try it. It's basically a clone of the flash game Copter:

    [​IMG]

    You must have Java 1.5 or above installed to play it. If you don't have it then get it here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    If you have Java, Click Here to Play!

    Visit my website to view the highscore table:
    http://www.terabytelabs.net/shyguys-cave-of-death/

    Please let me know what you think. Any suggestions are welcome!

    UPDATE: A few improvements have been made including bonuses. They bounce around the cave and offer you things like multipliers and shields! As a result it's possible to get much higher scores now so make sure you submit your scores after trying it out.

    Typing the letter P in the submit score closes the app.

    Thanks for that yodasarmpit. I knew there would be a few niggles popup. Anyway, that bug's been squashed.

    kergareth, What do you mean by a morphing colour scheme?

    Smilodon, I don't know what you mean either? The music doesn't have a techno-part.

    Anyway thanks for the comments. By the way anyone who beats my score gets a cookie :D

    mabye not techno, but the drumming sound. (not talking about part of melody on time-scale, just layer-scale, if you know what i mean. (probably not.. :sigh: ))

    Can you put some sort of option to turn off the music?

    As you progress through the levels have the palette change from browns to other colours - provides a bit of variety and also lets you know you've gone up a level.

    Press 'M' to turn off the music.

    Also 'P' or Escape pauses the game. You can quickly cancel the highscore screen by pressing Escape too. You can also use the Up key instead of clicking to make the Shyguy go up.

    Interesting idea for the colours. I'll look into how it might look.

    Nice game - I like the graphics, they're shiny - the shy guy sprite itself does look a bit janky though, which should be easy to fix and make a big difference.

    It took a few minutes to install and get ready.

    I got two comments. First of all, I've never heard of the world "niggle" before. It sounds funny. Second of all, I too like the crashing sound and graphic!!
