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 and created by, and

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, 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 game was awesome... but i can't see the medals...

EntropicOrder responds:

Thanks! If you got any medals while signed in, they should have saved to your profile, but I think Tom hasn't made it so they appear on this game page yet. Once they're added they should appear here as achieved for the ones you got.

One sweet funny game. Nicely done!

EntropicOrder responds:

Thank you. If you find any humor in the game then I'll have to give the credit on that to Zeebarf. His animation style really keeps things light hearted despite the pretty philosophical concept behind the game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice. But.....

I hope that you make a sequel with more to the story, and hopefully more than just lifestyle changes for him to. Like maybe changing species or even gender. I could easily see part of it having guards in this one area that change based on the scene, but the guards be able to bypass if a girl due to them being lovestruck gentlemen in a "Lady's first" pose or "After you" pose. XD

A gem of the gaming world

This game, I think, is truely unique. The music is fun, just like the game play. The different abilities of the three different forms of the character really makes the game stand out.

This is a cut above the rest. Keep up the great work.
