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.

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!

- 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.

- 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.



The Graphics were good. But the animation was fairly awful. The only part of the hero that is fully animated are his legs. His arms and head just bob up and down. And the level design was poor.

Shame, I've come to expect better from you guys :(

What didn't you like about the level design?

great game but found an glitch

in the second stage over those 3 fire walls under the floor I fell through the floor & died by getting stuck between fire walls. just letting you know

EntropicOrder responds:

Sorry man, I'm trying to track down what might be causing that but I've tested for hours on end and I never see that issue.

not bad

very creative and also accompanied by good visuals. but it would be nice if the story were a little more detailed. it would also be nice if there was some sort of in-game tutorial on the different enemies and controls. but nonetheless this is sure to be front paged. GOOOD JOOOB GUUUUYS

EntropicOrder responds:

I'm planning to put together a game guide that adds more depth to the story and instructions with stuff that that didn't make it into the final cut.

Great platformer!

I have to go in a min , so I couldn't finish the game before I had to go.

I am at level 2 now. And I don't think the game will go worse.

It's a really fun platformer with nice graphics. I like it how you can change from personality/world or whatever =]

Tomorrow I will get all Medals for this! Thanks for this AWESOME GAME SIR.

Oh yeah I forgot, I love it how you can see how much time you gotten on every level.
