Ein mit sehr viel Liebe gestaltetes wunderschönes Jump 'n Run das alles mitbringt, was dieses Genre zu bieten hat: Rätsel, Atmosphäre, sehr viel Charme und eine toll erzählte (wenn auch sehr simple) Geschichte. Unbedingt mal ausprobieren - I approve!
9/10

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (Platformer-Puzzle)

We have some basic options: Vibration (if you're using a controller), Sound Effects, Music, Subtitles (NOT on unless you turn them on), and Use Arrow keys (if you prefer not to use or don't have a controller), and then there are settings for the grapics, low, medium, and high. There are also six languages to choose from. The game automatically adjusted for my widescreen, but it can be played Windowed by hitting Alt-Enter, if you wish.

The game begins in a very Labyrinth-esque way, and it's up to you to save your brother from the trouble you caused for him. ;p Gameplay starts out as a very basic platformer, but it's not long until you start gaining some powers, and that's where the true charm of the game starts shining through. The puzzle mechanics are brilliantly realized, ranging anywhere from easy to perplexing, but not to the point of frustration.

I was enjoying the puzzle aspect of the game so much that I was actually a bit disappointed when, in latter levels, we started needing to depend on quick decision-making, and at times, good reflexes! It wasn't until the final sequence of the game that I remembered -- Oh yeah, this is what platformers used to be all about! (ie. Donkey Kong Country, etc.) The beauty of these sections is that, while they may be difficult, they are still doable! It may take a dozen tries, but it CAN be done, AND you don't have to keep starting the level over again to achieve it, as the automatic save-points are well-spaced.

Something I truly love about the game is the graphics. Sure, they're pretty, but the devs did an amazing job making a side-scrolling platformer *feel* like a 3D game by periodically changing up the perspective. Beautifully done, devs, I'm very impressed! :D

The music was nicely-chosen, and I enjoyed the voices, as well -- especially some of Max's "YEEES!" moments. lol~

Points to remember:
- You can attach vines to a myraid of objects, ranging from branches to boulders and more.
- Items can be cut at the base OR the tip!
- Be creative and don't give up! The devs give us a lot of freedom with our powers, and sometimes it's going to be trial-and-error figuring things out.

There are a couple of things to be on the lookout for whilst you're running around. They are beholders (plants with eyeballs at the end of a stalk that allow the user to spy on the world) and pieces of an amulet. These collectibles are not *needed* to complete the game, but they sure do add an extra bit of fun. XD You can replay a chapter at any time (even after you've completed the game) from via the menu, and looking at the menu during gameplay will show you how many you have left to find on your current level. In addition, there are 27 Achievements for you to earn, another plus in my books.

Overall, I found Max: The Curse of Brotherhood to be a delightful game, full of beauty, danger, excitement... and tempered with just a splash of good old fashioned platformer-frustration. I would say that it's OK to play with older kids, but perhaps not little ones. There's a big scary monster in there (whom I find to be absolutely fabulous!), but it might upset younger children.

Highly recommended!

This was a fun platformer with a cool draw/erase mechanic to help you overcome some of the physics puzzles in the game. It also reminds me very much of the style of cartoon animation used in such shows as Jimmy Neutron. Looks very much like shows such as that.
The game itself features you, Max, trying to save your little brother from an evil scientist-y guy while avoiding his massive monster henchman, various obstacles, and so on along the way.

The gameplay was fairly seamless and this game was very well done in my opinion. The backdrops/scenery was beautifully rendered, and the animations were spot on. The puzzles, whether run and jump, draw and erase, or whatever, were not too challenging, but also never were boring. I really cant find any flaws with this game, except that maybe the story was a bit lite, but then again, it is set up like a cartoon, so that really isnt surprising necessarily.

All told, I give this game an 8 out of 10. It wasnt amazing, but it was really well done regardless.

A game that will make you smile, one of those 'feel good' games.

The game is about two brothers, Felix is the one that gets pulled into a mysterious world after his brother cast a spell to get rid of him. Max(you) in disbelieve as to what happened quickly decides to follow his brother in an attempt to rescue him. The game starts of slowly introducing each mechanic one at the time, the pacing is excellent. You can control natural elements(on fixed positions) within the game world with your magic marker. This is required to get to the end of the level, which are designed very well and look very good in terms of graphics. The puzzles that you need to solve are also well done... though they are not that challenging, but remain fun for players of all skill levels. I like the super hard ones but found myself enjoying this and even getting stuck on some. Having me say to myself when i find the solution "why did i not see that earlier" ,which actually makes me feel dumb instead of smart when i solve it...
There are also hidden items with levels and "eyes" that you can collect. All your character can do is jump and use the magic marker, so be aware that there is no combat is this game. Though there are ways to kill creatures.
It has high quality cinematics and excellent voice acting to go along with it.

If you like adventure platformers with some lite puzzles definitely consider this one.

+High quality cinematics
+Voice acting
+Puzzles
+Fun for all ages
+Interesting platforming
+Just the right length (6-7 hours gameplay)
+Great visuals

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is the sequel and Max & the Magic Marker. This time around it's a 2.5D experience of Max trying to rescue the brother he accidentally wished would disappear. This time the magic marker can only be used in specific locations and can only draw specific types of aids for Max to accomplish his goals (i.e. water, vines, raise platforms, etc...). There is less freedom than in the last game, but that doesn't stop this game from being a great game. The levels are well set up to allow for good puzzles to be solved and for the platforming portion of the game to be somewhat difficult at times where timing is everything. The graphics are beautiful and the sounds and voice acting is perfect for this type of game. Great fun for kids and adults.

Good looking casual puzzle-platformer. That's why I got it, and that's what I got.

Environments look quite good, and the main character is a kid that isn't too annoying.

Puzzles are... well, I guess easy as far puzzle-platformers go, because the only few times I got stuck was because I did not see the orange pillar-point.

I played 4/6 of the game with a controller and then I switched to M&K which made it easier, because I had troubles drawing with the stick.

The game has the exact same artstyle as a pixar movie which is kind of... awkward... but anyway, the game is a fun and enjoyable platformer with a magic marker added in as a unique element. For a indie game this has far better graphics and sounds than the usual, or so I thought until I did some research and discovered that the studio has been bought by microsoft. As such, this is not an indie game and cannot be compared with indie games. Taking this into consideration, I have to evaulate this game as being an unpopular and underrated platformer AAA game.

Max is surprisingly good platformer. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Although story is very basic it's more than enough. Game mechanics are really great. Sometimes even challenging. Yet the game is quite easy which is not a bad thing. It's also beautiful and I loved how camera changed it's position from time to time to give you the scope of the world. It was a great trick to improve immersion.

It is a solid game. I would definitely recommend it.

After seeing others compare this to HEART OF DARKNESS, I immediately downloaded the demo. Shortly after playing through the demo, I purchased the full game.

I no doubt spent many more hours than most, but I obtained all achievements today. Spending time searching for all of Mustacho's eyes and pieces of the amulet was well spent. Overall, the game is extremely fun, with great cartoony graphics and platforming and puzzles that won't drive you crazy.

If you have any interest in the game based on reviews and/or screenshots, try the free demo. If you like the demo, you'll undoubtedly like the full game.

A polished, well-designed puzzle-platformer with a decent amount of challenge. The controls are tight, the graphics are very well done. Environments are gorgeous and the characters are very well animated, Occasionally, there are some cheap, " no way could you have seen that coming" one-hit-kills but the checkpoint system is generous enough to prevent gamepad tossing. Overall, a very good experience that comes highly recommended to fans of the genre.

It you liked Trine and Trine 2 this game will be an obvious sequel. As instead of swapping between the character like Trine, you get the full package in one character as you go along. It is not a complete rip off of Trine and Trine 2 as you get to slove the problems in many more ways in Trine, where as Max is a bit more rigid. But saying that if you like Trine and Trine2 this is a game for you.

Ever had an annoying sibling that you wish/wished you could magic away? Well Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will scratch that itch for you!. :P
You'll also have to deal with the consequences of your heinous action, you awful person you, and experience some thrilling platforming and puzzle-solving which will challenge you throughout your journey along the simple but beautifully animated-story. The puzzles themselves are very-well thought out and will make you stop to think as they increase in complexity as you unlock the progressively more powerful (puzzle-solving) abilities that force you to combine and employ them in unconventional ways.
I also didn't find the trial-and-error method to completing some of the potentially aggravating chases and other such sequences to be an impediment to my enjoyment as I still remember gaming on the Atari/Nintendo/Genesis and this was part-and-parcel of the experience back then. Some people may find this 'cheap' difficulty to be off-putting in this modern day and age of gaming but to them I say "Suck it it isn't that hard!" :P
The major issue I did have with the game was with its control scheme where the game is best played with a gamepad where movement is concerned but can be somewhat cumbersome when drawing with the magic marker. With the latter it may be best to use your mouse as it is smoother and more effective and I found myself switching back and forth during the more complicated parts of the game.

Also, all achievements baby, yeah! xD

8/10

A charming little platformer with interesting mechanics and a beautiful artstyle. However if you are looking for an original story and some mind bending puzzles this game is not for you.

Hallo zusammen und willkommen zu meiner Review von Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.

Ich habe jetzt ein wenig eine Eindruck vom Spiel gewinnen könnnen und muss ganz klar sagen: Es ist super toll.

Es ist grafisch wirklich sehr schön gestaltet und wirkt auch sehr liebevoll.

Als Max müssen wir uns auf ein Abenteuer begeben und unseren Bruder Felix befreien. Dafür müssen wir in typischer Jump & Run Manier über Hindernisse springen, hinaufklettern oder mit unserem Magic Marker, diese einfach entfernen. Gepaart wird das ganze mit Rätseln und "Action".

Insgesammt ist das Konezpt jetzt nicht neu, aber warum soll man das Rad auch neu erfinden. Ich finde das alle Elemente gut abgestimmt wurden und in sich wirklich gut zusammenpassen, sodass es wirklich Spaß macht.

Über die Gesammtspieldauer kann ich aktuell noch nichts sagen, da ich das Spiel noch nicht durch habe. Ich schätze aber das diese bei 4-5 Stunden liegen dürfte.

Hier nun noch ein Video dazu:

Ich habe mir das Spiel geholt weil ich mit "Max and the magic marker" eine menge Spaß hatte. Das neue Spiel hat mit dem alten aber eigentlich nichts zu tun. Nur die Namen z.B. des Bösewichtes und die Existenz des Magic Markers erinnern noch an den verrückten "Puzzlespaß". Es ist ein sehr linearer 2D-Sidescroler aktueller machart, die größte Schwierigkeit sind somit die nicht ganz nett konzipierten und leicht bug behafteten gescripteten szenen. Wehe ihr macht es nicht genau so wie die Macher sich das vorgestellt haben ;-) Die Freiheit des alten Max ist damit leider komplett verloren, trotzdem macht auch das schon fast fix definierte verändern der Umwelt einigen Spaß und bescherte mir ohne jeden sidequest rund 5h Spielspaß.

Ja, das Spiel Max: The Curse of Brotherhood hat mich echt gut unterhalten. Die Grafik war manchmal super, manchmal nicht so derbe, besonders bei der Oma sah es seltsam aus. Was ich vom Preis/Leistungs-Verhältnis halte, ist das 6 flüßige Stunden für 20 Euro doch recht viel ist. Daher sollte man es bei einem Sale holen, nur so vorab.

PRO
- Gameplay und Steurung waren super, ich hatte keinerlei Probleme
- Die Rätseln waren echt gut und manchmal musste ich doch doppelt nachdenken oder mehr aufpassen :D
- Ich fand das Setting einfach super! <3 Hat einen echt gut unterhalten :)
- Übersicht und Ansicht des Menüs finde ich super, sprich man kann es nochmals spielen wenn man bestimmte Geheimnisse noch nachsammeln will.

CONTRA
- Manchmal hatte ich den Anschein, dass es Bugs ab, aber die waren eher minimal und was mich am meisten störte waren die Ranken, die manchmal auf ihn landeten und Max nicht drauf springen wollte, stattdessen krabelte er immer und das verzögerte alles umso mehr.

Fazit
Ich finde das Spiel wirklich lohnenswert, denn die Idee ist echt super. Am Anfang kam mir Gedanke das ich das mit dem ezichnen woher kenne und tadaaa.. Trine hatte das mit dem Magier so, daher kam es mir so bekannt vor ^^ Trotzdem hat es was eigen, gerade da man die Elemente hierbei nutzt. Also wer was süßes und lustiges will, ist hier gut bedient! ;)
