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


This is a very good game with fun gameplay and good art and music. However, some points in the game are just way too hard and frustrate me to no end.

very nice game, but the backtracking is too annoying. i know it's something inherent with the genre of metroidvania, but it's not a good thing in this game, where you can't even level up or anything while backtracking like in SoTN, it's merely tiresome.

This is hands down my favorite flash game of the year thus far.

It had minimalist, but very adequate graphics.
It had a solid and comforting Metroid-style gameplay and level design. (I didn't get lost.)
It had the right amount of difficulty to make it enjoyable.
The controls felt as though the character had a little too much momentum for my liking. (made it a little sluggish on jumping)
Finally, the music vs sound effect levels were a little off I thought (there may have been a way to change it, but I didn't look because it wasn't that bothersome... only noticed it on the bosses that were kickin my butt... lol)

A very enjoyable way to spend an hour.
Thank you.

Quite fun, but that annoying sound/music thing just got on my nerves, Muting the music mutes the games effects as well? Ill give it 3.5 stars for being a pretty challenging little platformer with decent upgrades. Needs to be updated tho as its showing its age now
