It's amazing what you can find when you search for ancient artifacts. For example, one of our Weekend Download features from 2008 has been recently re-released for your browser-based enjoyment. The Power is a Metroidvania-like shooter where you play as an artifact collector who stumbles onto an unknown planet. What is The Power that runs the planet, and what does receiving The Power mean?
Use the [arrow] keys to move around the neon-lit world and [up] to jump. To start, you only have your beam gun to protect yourself (shoot with [X]), but over time you acquire mines, missiles, and other gadgets to aid your exploration. As you explore the many layers of the planet, you'll run into many difficult boss fights (sometimes without any warning), so be sure to save at the pink S stations whenever you can. If you can weather the challenge and stick it out through a long and arduous trek across the mysterious planet, you just might discover what having The Power means. Get exploring!
