    Default Basic counter timer for a game?

    Hi I have just started to learn Java and really need some help

    I have created a basic platform game in BlueJ and would like some help on creating a countdown timer that will appear in my GUI.

    I would like the timer to countdown from 30 seconds and once 0 is reached I would like my gameOver method called upon.

    I will also be creating pickUps that will extend the time by 5 seconds each

    The problem is I have no idea where to start.
    Any help is appreciated
    Thanks in advance
