The Jelly Caves
The Jelly Caves is a game originally created for Ludum Dare 19. The game was created from scratch and entirely by me in less than 48 hours.
Your objective is to find treasures in the cave while avoiding and killing an immense amount of living jelly. Caves are randomly generated and are harder the deeper they are. They have various levels (potentially infinite) and contain a number of chests.
The main obstacle of the game are jelly monsters. By digging around the map, you get rocks that can later be thrown at these monsters to kill them. There's not much more to the game, though.

Building/Running the Game
In the releases page you can find pre-compiled versions of the game in JAR format. In most systems you should be able to double-click the file to run it if you have Java installed. If you have problems, the Internet is full of advice on how to execute a runnable JAR.
If you want to build the game from source, the easiest way is to install Ant and
ant command inside of the game directory. Running
ant run will
have the same effect, in addition to immediately run the game.
