Jim Power: The Lost Dimension in 3D

Jim Power: The Lost Dimension in 3D

A sci-fi action shooter game that frequently switches its gameplay from platformer to top-down shooter to scrolling shoot 'em up. It's notable for its high difficulty, busy visuals and the soundtrack by Chris Hulsbeck.


Jim Power: The Lost Dimension in 3D is a sci-fi action game from French company Loriciels and is a sequel/remake to their earlier Jim Powers in Mutant Planet. Major updates were made to the game, including more gameplay modes and a graphical facelift. The game also makes ample use of parallax scrolling, creating a lot of visually intense stages.

Loriciels developed the game in part to be an homage/spiritual successor to Factor 5's Turrican series. They even brought on the original composer for Turrican: Chris Hülsbeck.

The game was, at one point, being developed as a Buck Rogers game, but the license was stripped during development and lightly massaged into a Jim Power release. Jim Power: The Lost Dimension in 3D was developed for the SNES and PC-DOS. A Genesis version (called Jim Power: The Arcade Game) was planned but ultimately canceled.
