Can't code

This project written in Java aims to create free implementation of perfect puzzle game named Brick Shooter.

The project is looking for good soundtrack for JBrickShooter game: short composition to be played in the loop. And it would be nice to add sounds to brick movement and removal. If you have any ideas about that and/or can create small sounds - feel free to mail me to xstranger at

Also, this is the first release that has jar-file signed using certificate from CERTUM - General Certification Authority. So starting from now the game does not require to be installed: you can play JBrickShooter directly from this page! Just Click on the "Play Now!" button at the page footer and confirm that you trust game publisher. If you have Java correctly configured with your browser then the jar-file will be automatically downloaded and started. Enjoy the game and Happy New Year!
