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 4.5 / 5 stars

I thought the ending was good. Not cliche to not fight the boss. In real life leaders don't make good tend to be bad fighters anyway. The final wave of enemies was tad disappointing. I expected a big creature/machine as the final solider or someone who emitted more power from his veins.

Half a star off, the first boss was easy to beat. All that had to be done was stand near the middle of the difference from the boss and the wall thus making all the rocks miss you.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

this is an awesome game!! this was missing just two things!! a final boss and an extra boss that you can fight only if you collect all health and missile upgrades! (and i did by the way!) you should have made it so when you reach the king then you have to beat his king beast! (which is super hard!) afterwards then you get the power! but if you get all upgrades then you have to fight this crazy, power hungry mad man who wants to destroy the universe and create it in his own image! (not to mention he's in a giant robot! he's also super hard to beat!) then afterward you get the power and then it ends! why couldn't it be like that? then it would be perfectly awesome!
oh and Averrath, although i don't agree with your score i do agree with some of the stuff you said!
although Dragonsoul0 had a better idea! ANYWAYS,

that was intended but due to the lack of time and project took alot of time from us we decided to release it to the world :)


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I love the game, it was good and addicting, but maybe if you added more bosses and bigger map, more weapons. The ending was a bit strange and boring..i thought i would get a badass power to continue a harder level with but i guess that was the end, nothing special. I had fun though maybe next time.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great game! It's challenging and reminds me a bit of Cave Story. Nice Job keep up the good work.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Gameplay was alright. I would have liked this game more if it didn't follow one of many downers of games.... and that's making you go back to the same place to get something repeatedly. Even more so i disliked the fact that you repeated the same knight boss twice, one as the final fight, here i wouldn't have cared if i fought the knight before another final boss... But putting the same boss with the same skills except slightly stronger as the final boss made my impression much worse.
I was expecting to fight a boss where i would have to utilize the items i got and maybe hook at the ceiling when the boss charged in a line or the mine to break a hole in the ground when the boss tries to explode or something like that, but really any other boss is fine. Ending just seemed very anti-climatic and rushed.

Other points i found frustrating was.
1. I couldn't blow up those annoying flying crap with missiles until i got the second one. It's not even like those flying guys had any importance to them to be immune to getting 5000 bullets lodged in them.
2. That green bubble thing that you can only kill with a hook and not a GUN. Vice Versa, i can't kill some monsters hurt other monsters with the hook? i expected i was able to maybe like hook the fish (since you know hook + fish = makes sense)
3. The mine being practically useless. I was expecting it to explode when enemy stepped on it which is what i believe is the proper function of a mine. I can shoot the gun and fire tons of missile at once but you're telling me i can only put down one mine at a time?
4. That frog... I wanted to kill that frog after his annoying excuse with his stupid smile after beating him. I can hurt him with a hook but not missiles or guns? Is it some kind of Superfrog except his weakness are hooks instead of kryptonite? I find these restrictions very annoying. Sure missile 1 not being able to destroy a wall cause its not strong enough makes sense, or a that dinosaur's thick skin might of been resistant or immune to bullets but not the explosive mine... but a fleshy frog....
5. Most of the music made me cringe.
6. Making the texts pink made me not want to read it at all.

These are couple of reasons why i rated this low. Checked this game out cause i saw it on the front page.
