A treasure hunter just discovered a new planet, or did he? Step into a new world full of enemies, hazards, bosses and lots of power-ups. The Power is an action packed Metroidvania style platformer with stylish graphics, awesome music and simple yet challenging gameplay. Are you up for an adventure to uncover the mystery behind The Power?

Arrow keys to move and jump. X key to shoot. Inventory: Space



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Graphics are meant to be retro, so I can't really ding for that, but there is a reciprocal expectation for gameplay. After trying nearly every button to switch between missiles and mines, I still couldn't find it. The controls in the comments do not remind how to do this and it is impossible to progress without it. This is a very minor issue in an otherwise fairly standard linear platformer.

The boss battles are well balanced and reminiscent of Mega Man. The exploration should feel a bit like Metroid (NES) but with a bit less freedom. As with games of this type, the new tool/weapon progresses you through and sometimes aids you in boss fights.

A little slow paced waiting for the invincible monsters to get out of the way, but not a bad game.
