    Default NEW TO PROGRAMMING, PLEASE HELP (cannot find symbol error)

    This is one of my first assignments for my CS1 class. I realize it may be very simple, but even though I have typed in the code EXACTLY as it should be I keep getting "GameLauncher.java:12: error: cannot find symbol". I don't understand what I've done wrong in line 12 that makes this error.

    here is the program exactly as I've typed it. please help.

    /**
    *@author censored
    *@version 2011.08.26.01
    *@since 2011.08.26
    *Program00
    */

    public class GameLauncher
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    GuessGame game = new GuessGame();
    game.run();
    }
    }

    Can't find any issue's with it
    What's the code for GuessGame anyhow?

    Edit: Can you post the full error message you got from the compiler?

    Note: Don't write your titles in capital letters, It makes people less inclined to help IMO.

    Is the class definition for GuessGame on the classpath so the compiler can find it?
