No breaks

The controls are missing breaks.

I will add, just so that anyone skimming through and thinks the game is missing a critical feature, this is intentional. It's a bit like the controls in the arcade game Asteroids.

Upgrading to java version "1.7.0_65" fixed the problem. Game is now working! Thanks!

This game WORKS fine on Linux Mint.
You can install Steam, Look in the Linux Games Library and you will see this game. Works THROUGH steam i guess.

REMEMBER: Steam has this FreeToPlay game available NOW

no license yet

Ugh, no license declared yet. I blame Jordan Mechner for this!
Author, Milosh Petrov has said he will declare a license later. Currently the source code technically accessible to the public, yet proprietary (not "Open Source").
