Hi, neither i know if there is a game with this name, nor i think it is perfectly appropriate for our game; but it's name is JBlaster.
It's a term project for a lecture, but we decided to develop it more and make it better.
It's a tetris like game but we do not delete the rows, instead, we delete the combining colors that are 3 or more together. It is possible to combine boxes diagonally or straightly. We also have some special boxes, that are : star, boomaround (i know it's not a good name at all
, but it's self descriptive) and lightning. Star deletes all colors that it is landed on. Lightning deletes all boxes on the column it landed on. BoomAround deletes all the boxes around it. We also have a Rock type box, it doesn't combine so it s a badlam actually
. You can delete it with special boxes. Blocks are not rotated, instead we cycle the colors inside it clockwise or counter-clockwise (up down keys). Space key causes fast drop. As you gain scores, game gets harder, i.e level increases at every 3000 score.
After we fully implement the game logic, we started to consider to look better. For this we implemented some functions to make a smooth transition between cells. There are some minor glitches in this case. For this and some sound issues (because it's first time we use sound in a game, it is a bit bad implemented) i put this project into WIP section. Also we decided not to implement a database which we wanted to save some global scores, don't care about that package; it will be removed. I hope we can get some help to fix them
. I also hope to get some feedback about the game, whether it is ok or it needs something else to be added.
Thanks for caring and spending time into reading this.

PS: When we create the project, we were sending files to google code, but after some error we had problems with sending codes. It's also our first try with subversion. So don't care about the sources section, just check the downloads and download the netbeans project to see the codes, or if you want just to play you can download the jar file.
