JSame - Puzzle Game
JSame is a puzzle game (inspired by SameGame), which is played on a rectangular field, filled with coloured squares. The objective of the game is to clear the field by removing groups of pieces of the same colour. You get points for each group you remove and the larger the group, the more points you get. To get the highest score you need to make large blocks of one colour.
Pieces can be removed when there is a block of at least two pieces of the same colour.
These pieces will be marked when you move the mouse over them,
then they can be removed simply by clicking them with the mouse.
After a block is removed, the pieces above it drop down to fill the empty space.
When a column is empty, all columns right of it are shifted to the left.
When there are no more blocks of two or more pieces left, the game is over.
The points of a marked block of pieces are calculated by the formula (n − 2)2, where n is the number of pieces. So try to remove as many pieces at a time as possible to get a higher score. When there are no pieces left at the end of the game, you'll get a 1000 points bonus.
Java 6 or later is recommended for JSame. Before
launching JSame, make sure you have a compatible JRE.
You can download the program in JAR format. Most platforms have a mechanism to execute .jar files (For example: double click the jsame.jar on Windows). You can also run the application from the command line by typing: java -jar jsame.jar
