JumbledGames

Want to learn or review code techniques while playing games? Want to learn some cool coding techniques? That is what this game is about!

For each challenge you are given a series of quests. Each quest is a code puzzle that you can solve. Rearrange the lines of code from the pile and solve the quest.

Be aware that not all lines may be useful for some quests. When arranged correctly, answer the question and press the "Next" button to continue to the next puzzle. Solving each part increases your score. Solving all the puzzles in the shortest time wins you a spot on the Leaderboard.

After solving a challenge perfectly you are rewarded. You can spend you rewards in the Rewards Store. When you purchase rewards, you have new options for game play.

One of the rewards is the ability to copy code from the program to the Java Console. You can enable the Java Console by following the instructions at:
https://www.java.com/en/download/help/javaconsole.xml

Note that you will not be able to keep track of your progress unless you use Java 7 or earlier. Java 8 throws a security exception when trying to store your progress. Another option is to "Open Scenario in Greenfoot" and use CTRL-SHIFT-P / CMD-SHIFT-P to set a Player name.

I appreciate feedback and suggestions on challenges, gameplay, music, etc.

@rezendes: The problem is because I am using UserInfo to keep track of information. Java 8 throws a security exception when using storage. See davmac's comments in http://www.greenfoot.org/scenarios/12380
A new version of this scenario was uploaded on Sun Nov 23 03:41:36 UTC 2014 More modifications to checking for storage.
Is there a way to complete the challenge and get credit without reverting back to java 7?
