    Lightbulb Terminal Tamagotchi

    Hi There Folks!

    I'm kinda new to Java and I've started on a little project.
    As the title states, I've started on a Terminal Tamagotchi. I need some of your expertise for it to work. Here's the code:

    public class tamaegenskaper {
    	private int height; 
    	private int age;
    	private int weight;   
    	private int mood;
    	private int hunger;
    	private	int name;
    	private String color;   
    	private String growing;
    	private	String time;	
    	private String name;
    	public class tama (){	
    		height = 120; //cm
    		age = 10;
    		weight = 30;
    		color = "Caucassian";
    		hunger = "Hungry";
    		hunger = "Stuffed";
    		mood = "Happy";
    		mood = "Sad";
    		name = "Fluffy";
    public void time();    //för 1 år!
    	height +=5;  //cm
            age +=1;
    	hunger="Mood: Sad";
    public void food() {
    	hunger = "Stuffed";
            hunger = "Mood: Happy";
    public void dead()
    	System.out.println ("Your character became to old and died")
    public void exterminated()
    	System.out.println ("You're an evil person!")
    	System.out.println ("Fluffy is dead")
    public int getHeight() {
    	return height;
    public int getAge() {
    	return age;
    public int getHunger() {
            return hunger;

    Thats the definition of the object and here is the program:

    import java.io.*;
    public class TamaProgram {
    	public static void main(String[] args){
    		BufferReader kb = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(Stream.in));
    		TamaEgenskaper tama = new TamaEgenskaper();
    		boolean quit = false;
    		System.out.println ("Here is a list of commands you can do:");
    		System.out.println ("Age= You age Fluffy with one year which make him grow into a giant!");
    		System.out.println ("Feed= You feed Fluffy, making it Stuffed and Happy");
    		System.out.println ("Quit= You stop feeding and aging Fluffy");
    		System.out.println ("Assassinate= You kill Fluffy");
    		while (!quit) {
    			String cmd = kb.readLine();
    			if (cmd == "Age") {
    				tama.time(); //make time elapse as 1 year per minute, not in static line perhaps?
    			} else if (cmd == "Feed") {
    			} else if (cmd == "Quit") {
    				quit = true;
    			} else if (cmd == "Assassinate") {	
    			if (Age > 80 );

    If you have any ideas how to get it to work, please reply

    Thanks in advance!

    Saying "it doesn't work" is as useful to us as us saying "then fix it" is useful to you.

    Ask a specific question and post an SSCCE, and we'll go from there.
