First released on the Xbox One back in 2013, followed by the Xbox 360 and Windows 10 in 2014, the single-player puzzle platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is finally making its way to the PlayStation 4. While the game received mixed reviews and only sits at 72% on Metacritic, the Steam release has managed to garner an “Overwhelmingly Positive” overall rating with 95% of the 800 reviews being positive.
When Max wishes for his annoying little brother, Felix, to be whisked away by unknown evil forces, he gets more than he bargained for. Armed only with a marker and a hope of undoing what he has just done, he sets out on a perilous journey across deserts, eerie lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush green forests to get his younger sibling back. Along the way Max gains the power to manipulate his environment and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.
The game itself has a fantastic art style and visuals, but some reviewers complained that the game is a bit too challenging. However, my kids and I have personally enjoyed picking it up and playing it from time to time over the past couple years as we undertake Max’s quest to rescue his brother.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to finally bring the Flashbulb team’s endearing platform puzzler to the PS4 platform,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “It’s a magical game with gorgeous visuals that effortlessly combines charming old school platforming action with cunningly-designed puzzle elements. In short, we can’t wait to bring Max to a whole new host of gamers!”
Features of this fun adventure/puzzle platformer include:
- Embark on a classic tale of brotherhood, as Max sets out on his quest to rescue his kid brother Felix, from the grasps of the evil lord Mustacho.
- Explore a world filled to the brim with challenging physics puzzles and frantic platforming Climb, fight and draw your way through lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples, and lush-green-forests.
- Use the power of the marker to raise great pillars of dirt from the ground, reach new heights, grow trees to make bridges and create swinging vines to cross gaping chasms.
The game will be coming to the PlayStation 4 some time this Fall from Wired Productions, Flashbulb Games, and Press Play.
