Looks good.

Why does it have to be a signed application though?

Well, the thing is I'm new to this whole webstart business, and so I followed the tutorial by Kevin Glass which states:

The final important thing to note about the Jars you distribute is that they must all be signed.

So I'm assuming then that it need not be signed?  Undecided

Mine isn't. It runs. You should only need to sign it if you're doing something which requires you to step outside the sandbox - e.g. accessing the network or the filesystem. There's very little need to do that in a 4k Java game.

Ok now after reading instructions. It don't worked as i understood it. Maybe it's just as english is not my natural language  Grin
So just as a hint for the instructions, as i now seem to understood the rules:
You should make it more obvious that all alienz with the correct row/column-amount are removed.

Edit:  I wanna have a highscore-list  Grin   Level39 with 12.3Mio Points.

please remove this game, i can't stop playing...

The webstart tutorial assumes you're using natives, JOGL in the case of the astroprime example. To use natives, you need signing.

@kevglass Ah I see. Thanks for clearing that up for me. I got a little nervous after seeing my jar size shoot up to 6K after signing lol.

@toasten Yes you're right, I forgot to mention that part in the instructions. Thanks.
 Shocked 12.3mil!!... Good Job!  Grin

Alienz 4K has been updated. It now looks smoother with some added eye candy.
Also, it is happily no longer signed  Wink

Fun mechanic, but the 2-second timer on the combo bonus really penalises laptop players using a trackpad. Any spare bytes for key control (numbers 1 to Cool?

I think it's MEANT to be 5 seconds.. but the timing code is flawed. I noticed alot of effects that were probably meant to be slower.. the blinking score increment, the blinking eyes. The eyes blink so fast now it actually looks like the game is flickering.

It appears that alot of the stuff is updated based on the amount of frames, not the amount of time that has passed..

Bug report: I think you're checking the game-over condition before the clearing condition. I dropped an 8 into the only empty square and it was game over.

The instructions are very confusing.  I understand the row/column number thing (I think).  But, what causes the cascading removal of aliens?  This is a dropping piece puzzle game.  However, unlike Tetris, you aren’t battling time.  Nothing is pushing you forward to make decisions rapidly
