When I started university, I told myself to save all my projects. That way I could create a library of useful bits that I could use in later projects.

That was nearly a quarter of a century ago. Since then I’ve collected a projects folder of about 20 GB. This contains lots of duplicates, special purpose projects, and code that just doesn’t run anymore. (Software rot is real!)

Over the past couple of weeks, I started to go through my projects folder. And I found this little game, appar-ently written in October/November 2012 and I forgot about it until now. It’s written in Java 1.6, but still runs in java 15.

The controls are simple: use the right and left arrow to move the blocks. Esc to quit. Don’t let the blocks pile up too high. You get points for three or more connecting blocks (diagonal doesn’t count).

Here’s the Github.
