Run: 

If you have Java installed you should be able to just double click the 'abacusfigher.jar' file to run it
directly. Otherwise, try the command 'java -jar abacusfighter.jar'. If it won't run hit me up on Twitter or 
the compo page.

Objective:

The goal of the game is to calculate the given number at the top of the screen before your opponent does. 
You accomplish this by adding beads to your side of the abacus. Each bead adds ONE UNIT OF VALUE for that row.

The row values are:

1.............. |-@@@@@@@@@@-|
10............. |-@@@@@@@@@@-|
100............ |-@@@@@@@@@@-|
1000........... |-@@@@@@@@@@-|
10000.......... |-@@@@@@@@@@-|
100000......... |-@@@@@@@@@@-|

e.g., 3 beads from the first row are worth 3 points. 3 beads from the 2nd row are worth 30 points.

Controls: 

Player One:     MOVE UP         - W
                MOVE DOWN       - S
                ADD BEAD        - A

Gameplay:

Move your arrow up and down along the rows. Use your 'add bead' key to add a bead to your side from the available 
beads. If there are no more available beads you will instead steal one from your opponent. There are only 10 beads 
and some numbers will require more than your even share!

Use your 'remove bead' key to remove a bead you previously added or that was forced onto you. Double tap that same 
key to force a bead onto your opponent. This will throw their number off and buy you valuable time!

Press the 'shake abacus' key to shake the abacus violently! This will randomize the positions of all beads on the 
abacus. Some will be on your side, some on your opponenets, and some sitting in the middle. Use this to buy yourself 
time if you're about to lose. Only 2 shakes per game can be used, and they are shared between you and your opponent.
