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.

Loved this game

the constantly falling through the floor annoyed me but i love the animation the idea and all that stuff so 9/10

EntropicOrder responds:

Version 1.32 should have fixed the falling through the floor problem. Thanks for not rating it down because of it!

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.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty good

nice game overall. however, is a section of level 7 supposed to be upside down? I can't find a way to flip myself.

EntropicOrder responds:

Yeah, it's meant to be upside down. You don't need to flip yourself, you just need to use what you can get find to pass that area.
