Coin Rushby lectvs - 48 Hour Compo Entry
--- YOU NEED JAVA TO PLAY ---

Coin Rush is a fast-paced arcade game with 48-hours worth of gameplay! (may require some effort)
The idea is simple: Collect as many coins as you can before you die!
Every 10 seconds (yeah yeah, i know) a random event happens, be it an increase in enemy speed, or more coins!
Enemies fall from the holes above. Jump on his head to defeat him, ala Mario. If he touches you, you die.
Enemies collect fallen coins. When you kill them, DOUBLE the coin amount is released. This makes for interesting combos. Enemies can hold a max of ~500 coins.
There is a shop at the bottom, with 4 items you can buy (one after the other).
Arrow Keys / WASD / ZQSD >>>> Move/Move around the Menu
W / Z / Up / Space >>>>>>>>>> Jump
S / Down >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Select/Buy item from shop
Esc >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Quit
There are online scores, but they're a bit finicky. If a problem arises, tell me!
Thanks a ton for checking the game out! I feel this is my personal best entry to a compo so far.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
