Pogo vs. Towers of Confusion - Epic Battles

General Confusion, the veiled enemy within our lines, slips in through the gates of deficient understanding of the efficient and latent factors, variables and patterns governing the actors and the field of activity in our existence. A stubborn human lack of insight offers him a safe haven, a virtually infinite breeding ground for his clandestine sabotage.

As thorough and symmetric understanding of our base existential dynamics decreases, entire infrastructures and establishments collapse — ground to dust and powder in the heat of their own increasing friction, meeting their demise with the cancer of pathological asymmetry, leaving but a residue of ashes scattered in the winds of entropy. To gain a clear perspective, Pogo has to conquer the Towers of Confusion first.

Pogo starts his quest up the long and slippery steps of the Tower of Confusion.
He needs to press the red button at the top and take the whole tower down.
The Troops of Entropy, led by General Confusion, will mercilessly burn to ashes world empires, nations, corporations and companies, social environments, networked platforms, software architectures, and even your very own psychological domains. The Winds of Entropy and the slow-acting Poisons of Confusion can decimate everything from the smallest microcosm to the greatest macrocosm.

Learn to observe and understand the dynamics across your systems, seek to transcend the pandemonium through astute wisdom. Understand the functional symmetries of your environment, and seek to nourish and advance them with your thoughts and actions. Symmetry leads to balance, and balance is a prerequisite platform for happiness and fulfillment — rewards rarely found on the slippery slopes of confusion.

If you drive a submarine, you can move under the waves of Confusion.
Otherwise, cultivating a high lung capacity can be a versatile asset —
especially in a two-player game with a one-seater bubble submarine.
"Pogo starts from the bottom and has to find his way up to the top. Along his way to the top of the tower, Pogo encounters many different enemies, mostly shaped like basic geometric shapes. Pogo can shoot some of the enemies, while some are impervious to shooting. Contact with an enemy knocks Pogo down to the ledge below. If there is no ledge below, Pogo falls into the sea and drowns. Once he has reached the top of the tower, Pogo needs to enter a door to trigger the tower's destruction mechanism. After that, the tower crumbles to the sea. " 

Nebulus was one of my great inspirations during my early formative years with technology. Pogo's enemies, as the common problems we encounter in our lives, are mostly shaped like basic geometric shapes. The trick to success is to gain extra lives on the way up, because Pogo will unavoidably fall to the sea at times as the Troops of Entropy are raging in full spirits. The better Pogo can understand the nefarious moves and strategies of General Confusion, the smoother his conquest of the towers of confusion and entropy will become. Thumbs up for Pogo — he's my childhood hero!

If you take too much and give too little,
You're bound to loose much and be given little;
Be consistent in your symmetry of exchange,
living and giving to meet with happiness.

Setting the scene: The Troops of Entropy are led by Commander of Respect, encouraged by Admiral Words, and fortified with the Pipe-dream Patallions of Major Disarray. Captain Quirk provides cloud platform air support. Pogo is Private. Incoming!!
