About Coobird's Blocks

This is a complete rewrite of an earlier version which was lost due to a hard drive crash a couple years ago. The original version was written as a Java applet, where this new version is designed with making an applet and an application version.

The underlying design philosophy of Coobird's Blocks is to have many of the elements of the game generate itself programmatically, a "tradition" that is being passed on from the previous version.
