Gasha-powerby jprogman - 48 Hour Compo Entry
**VERSION 3 UPDATE**
Yep, I have made a third version! This version is optimized further enough to reset the frame rate from 50hz back to 60hz again. I assure that the game is still the same as the first version, but with better performance.
I still have the first version up for your consideration, but you'll need a faster computer. (More details are on the journal entry.)
My specs (for optimal performance): 2.2Ghz Duo Processor with 512MB GPU, 3GB RAM
You are on the quest to find the big star. Along the way, you have capsules where you can collect, but cannot use. You need to find a nearby Gashapon machine to activate the power of "one" of your collected capsules.
I've programmed 5 different power-ups in total.
If you have more than one capsules collected when you are at a Gashapon, a power-up from one of those capsules would be randomly selected to you.
LEFT ARROW or "A" = move left
RIGHT ARROW or "D" = move right
UP ARROW or "W" = jump or double jump
SPACE BAR = fire a weapon (if you got)
NOTE: The hit-detection between the player and the enemies is hit-or-miss. It's not perfect, but it works a good majority of the time.
NOTE2: The windows version is only a test. I'm not sure if it will work on other computers other than mine. Let me know if it works on your computer. It works on my computer, but I have Flash CS5 installed.

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.
