Kalishir (David Birchall) 3 3 3 5 3 4 Is there any gameplay other than dodging the trashcans implemented? Main screen talks about picking up bottles, but I never saw any.

elamre (Elmar) 6 7 4 7 6 6 It feels like this one isnt quite finished. Im stuck in level 0 with score 0. The backgroud is nice. The music is OK, its just everything else is not so great. It's repetitive (trash cans falling down all the time, no change). Could've done much more with this.

    Could you provide some more information to help us debug than it doesn't run? I have tried the game on Windows 8, Mac OS x and Arch Linux and it runs on all of them so far.

    Nothing happens when I try to run the jar

    Try updating Java to the latest version if it doesn't work.

    Can you tell me what OS are you using?

    Worked for me on Mavericks.

  • HorizonShadow (5 years ago)

    Doesn't work for me either.

    OSX Mavericks, running the jar brings up JarRsrcloader for about a second, then "A drunken Leprechaun" flashes on the screen before exiting.
