    SuperShred – Readme

    I didn’t get a chance to post any comments in my entry post, so I thought I’d do that now.

    It’s a sort of typing practice game.

    The object of the game is to type the phrases that appear on the screen, scrolling from right to left.  As you type, you get points on an increasing scale.  One point for the first character, two for the second, three for the third, and so on.  The longer the streak, the more points you’ll earn.  However, if you hit the wrong key, you’ll lose your streak and start back over at one point.

    That’s not all.  A little bit after you start the game, a SuperShred shredding device will start to make it’s way from left to right, waiting to eat the phrases you’re typing.  If at any point the untyped part of the phrase hits the wall, the game is over.  Every mistyped key will increase the speed of the SuperShred, bringing closer the inevitable conclusion.

    You can get a minor reprieve, if you successfully type ten phrases.  It will reset the shredder back to the default speed.  You cannot get back your lost working room though, so you would do best to get to that tenth phrase as soon as possible if you make any mistakes.

    The game was written in Java and requires the Java 1.6 runtime.  Let me know if you have any problems getting it to run.
