Here's our Power of Three 2009 submission. Get ready to earn yourself some medals!

Master the worlds of Nature, Technology and the Supernatural and discover the meaning of the Paradox in this huge puzzle platformer. Watch out for roaming demons and mech bugs while you navigate the dynamic levels and uncover the purpose of the mysterious Changers. Try to figure out why things are never quite what you remember them being and use this knowledge to make your way through the world and confront the shadowy figure that keeps you from unlocking your full potential. Sponsored by Newgrounds.com and created by EntropicOrder.net, Zeebarf.com and Diverge.ws.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Arrows or WASD to move, Up/W to jump, Down/S to use Changers or lower the camera. Avoid running into enemies or falling into bottomless pits. Find the trophy in each level to advance to the next. Wait a moment next to keys, doors or bridges for a hint on how to proceed. Ghosted keys cannot be picked up until you use the required Changer. Try completing levels faster for special medals. Getting hurt adds 10 seconds to the clock so watch out!

TIPS:
- The game is very tall, so press F11 to make your browser full-screen if the top or bottom is cutoff for you.
- The game's dynamic platforming engine may require you to lower the quality setting to improve performance on slower computers. Press the Q in the lower left corner to toggle between high, medium and low quality.
- Most earned medals will appear once you return to the map.
- Your progress will be saved in a Flash cookie so you can return to the site where you played the game before and pick up where you left off.

UPDATES:
- 1/25/10 - There seems to be a problem with FireFox crashing with the latest version, though it works fine on IE. I'm looking into the problem and will release an update as soon as it's fixed.
- 1/8/10 - Version 1.41 fixes a problem that prevented players without a soundcard from being able to get passed the instructions or intro screens. Thanks goes to VengfuL for taking a couple hours out of his day to help me track this one down! Couldn't have done it without you! FYI to Flash developers, Sound.play() returns null if there's no sound card. :)
- 1/7/10 - Version 1.32 is live and should fix the following: Intermittently the player will fall through the floor on some computers but not others.

Amazing game!

Good to see another Power of Three project finished! Very nice puzzle platformer, incredible art and overall very nice. I'm still stuck on the first level though. Can't wait to see what more you have in store!


EntropicOrder responds:

Thanks! You'll definitely be seeing more from Zeebarf and I. Good luck figuring out how to pass it. I don't know where you're stuck, but here's a hint: the scientist and the mystic don't know much about fixing bridges.

Looks good but

There's a major glitch that killed me even after i started the game up 3 times and retried. First level i get past the angel bubble or whatever is hanging there and it flashes, then i'm stuck on a whole new screen in an infinite fall. So far that glitch has continually made it unplayable.


EntropicOrder responds:

The bug has been fixed in a newly uploaded version 1.2. Sorry about it! The D button was teleporting you to a specific coordinate (I put it in there as a teleport for debugging and forgot to remove it) and this has been fixed.

Good mix of adventure and puzzles.

It first seemed not too good to me, but after going into a changer it's pretty clear, it is not too hard to get the hang of it.
good mix of adventure and puzzles.
The art is good, but movement is a bit too simple I think.

The music fits with the game, but there should be more songs available when playing the game, this one gets repetetive. I know I can mute it but you know what songs are good with this game.

This game might become portal history this day and maybe this week/month .

It is good it is saved automaticly.
LOLZ medals, I just didn't see that because it is under judgement, but I just got one from nowhere XD.


EntropicOrder responds:

Thanks for the thoughtful response. FYI, there are different songs in levels 1-3, 4-6, and 7-9.

Interesting but buggy

I definitely want to rate this game higher, as it's fun, looks great, and plays pretty well. I cannot, however, as it has at least one major bug. It indicated using either the arrows or the WASD keys to move around. Pushing D, though, instead of moving you right, resets the game to some weird level you can't do anything in except die. Maybe it's just a weird bug only I saw, but it's still not okay to have your directions tell you to do something and it just kills you.

Problem fixed. I just uploaded a new version 1.2. I had associated D with a teleport for debugging a specific level and forgot to disable it. Sorry about that!
