Об этой игре

The pinnacle of alien evolution, Maw is a cowardly fat blob concerned mostly with snacking and lounging. He can, however, absorb the traits of anything he eats, is virtually indestructible, and can grow to unlimited size. If he wasn't a danger to all life in the universe, he'd make the perfect pet. In this action/adventure game, he's the best friend of our hero Frank, and only by working together can Maw eat their way to freedom. The Maw was honored with the Audience Choice Award in the 2008 PAX-10 showcase of independent games, and is a finalist at this year's Independent Games Festival for Technical Excellence.

What's not to like? Run around, be cute, and feed the entire universe to your new pet. The controls are fine, the interface is a little clunky, but the overall gameplay is mostly pretty straightforward - run around and get Maw to eat everything. Be sure to find new and interesting things to feed Maw, if only for the neat new effects it gives.

The Maw is a short, fun, 3D platformer where you play as Frank. Frank is some weird alien creature that escapes a boring life or prison or whatever and comes into contact with the Maw, whom he is able to control. Together, Frank and the Maw fight through various levels as the Maw also eats different creatures, growing at various points. Enemies vary but it can feel repetitive. Then again, this game was designed for children and I'm 24. Anyway, it's been in my library for a long time and I figured I might as well play it having just finished a number of other longer games.

7.0/10

The game starts from a nice concept, but doesn't make anything special out of it; that's the main problem: the game's rather boring. The pace of the main character (and of the game itself) is just too slow, the environments are so incredibly samey and boring, the preys mostly dull and requiring almost no effort to capture. The game's pretty short, yet you feel it still treads on too much, especially with the few but insipid cutscenes. Wasted potential.

Cute, interesting, weird.

Yeah, it's worth what you pay for it.

It's simple, pretty quick, fairly easy, but it's enjoyable for what it is.

This is an pretty Mawsome game I bought back in 2010 but am only playing it now, even with the DLC's I wish there was more to play. For how simple the gameplay is I had a decent amount of fun playing it, great game none the less.

The Maw это милая и веселая игра в жанре экшн-приключение, но по большей части это платформер. Вы играете за инопланетного преступника, которого задержали и доставили в трюм космического корабля, который чуть позже терпит крушение на неизвестной планете. Помимо вас в катастрофе выжило нечто зубастое, голодное, одноглазое существо по имени Maw. Он становится вашим другом и в то же время питомцем, который, поедая все подряд, вырастает буквально на глазах. Вместе со своим новым другом ваша задача выбраться с незнакомой планеты. Приятная графика и музыка. Это все что можно сказать об игре. Получилась отличная игра.
Оценка: 7.5/10

В России нельзя купить эту игру, однако есть в стиме баг с помощью которого можно приобрести пак игры (сама игра + длс) за 199 рублей. На распродаже я купил её за 29 рублей. Игра полностью стоит своих денег. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/1582/ вот ссылка на игру, если кого-нибудь заинтересовало

На протяжение всего повествования вы выступаете в роли милого (но крайне бесполого) зелёного человечка у которого есть ручной питомец (собственно эта тварь и есть Maw). Все уровни проходятся именно благодаря тому, что эта химера жрёт всех подряд и получает способности, позволяющие продвигаться дальше. Было бы мне лет 10-12 общая геймплейная мультяшность порадовала бы, а так игра не способна подбросить вам сложных задачек. Накормите своё любопытство! 7 из 10 :)

It's like playing a Pixar movie if that Pixar movie were about a murderous alien who eats things alive.

...rephrase: It's like playing a Dreamworks movie.

A cute little puzzle/action game where you play an escaped alien convict and befriend a blob that will eat everything else. I found the controls a bit loose but still very playable. Virtually no story, no real depth and cartoony graphics may make this one better suited for the younger crowd but it's a decent game to kick back with after an aggravating day for the older folks.

While graphics are simple, this game is a lot of fun to play. Sadly though, it also gets bored quite quickly as well because of the highly repetative gameplay :(

I had no idea this game even existed, or what it was, until Steam had it on sale.
I read some of the reviews, and downloaded the demo to give it a try, still not really knowing what this game was.
Turns out, it's kind of a puzzle game. I say "kind of" because the puzzles aren't particularily puzzling. It's just various ways that the Maw can eat things.
You play as sort of an escaped alien convict, and the Maw is like your pet. You feed him, he gets bigger. You feed him special creatures, he gets special powers. Use the special powers to get to things to eat, so he can get bigger, get big enough and he can finish the level. It's not overly complicated, but it's fun. It reminds me a little of Katamari, only with eating, instead of rolling around.

The good:
-Adorible graphics that aren't really out-dated, even though the game is old
-Simple game design/game play if you're looking for a very casual game
-Eat various creatures and see how large the Maw can get

The bad:
-Clunky controls. Half the time it feels like you're trying to wade through molasis. And the other half you're wondering why the mouse is so sensitive.
-Too much hand-holding AND not enough. Sometimes it'll tell you the stupidest things (like press "space" to dodge) and keep throwing it in your face. Other times you'll have no idea what to do (like press "space" to use Maw's ability) and you'll be struggling to figure out what to do, not because the puzzle is hard, but because you didn't know what key to press. When in doubt, press space.
-Camera angles..... the camera angles are just SOOOO frustrating sometimes. When you turn, the camera decides to turn in random directions, and you can move the mouse to turn the camera, but it only moves about a centimeter at a time, more often than not it'll take you more time to turn the camera than it will to complete the puzzle.

All-in-all it's not a bad game. But it's certainly not worth it at full price. I got it on sale for $2.39 (including the DLCs) and that's around what this game is worth. It's fun, but it's not very engaging. And if the controls were less infuriating I would probably be feeling differently about it, but as it stands, I would not recommend this game at full price. Buy it on sale, and it'll be worth your few dollars.

You find me captured by some aliens or humans and caged like an exhibit. Luckily their piece of crap ship crashes and I find myself next to a big glob looking creature who just loves to eat everything. Oh ya looks like I’m getting off this rock.

The Maw is the story of an alien and his new blob pet, Maw, trying to get away from their captures and get their freedom back. Maw is kind of like a garbage disposal but with large teeth and gets bigger after feeding him so much stuff.

You can feed him little pink fuzzy creatures as his basic food but once he’s a certain size you can feed him a variety of other things you find around the levels. Fire lizards that will change him into a fire breathing Maw. Flying worms can let you jump higher, float around for a bit, and slam down on things. A crazy peacock will let shoot lasers out of your eyes. Last a rhinoceros beetle that will let you charge into rocks and things to destroy them.

It’s a casual game with lots of humor and fun to be had. You’ll go through a total of 8 levels which aren’t to challenging and you can also download 3 deleted levels to add to your playtime. Not much wrong with the game except for length but it is a small indie title which started out as a XBLA game.

So if you want to laugh a little and burn some time then pick this game up and enjoy.

Even with outdated graphics, this game is still charming and very original. Smart game-play, funny characters and nice puzzles make it very fun to play. Refreshing.

I may have played through this game like 5 times. It's such a fun, tightly crafted little game. You can blast through it in a few entertaining hours. Because the characters have such great humor and heart to them, you may end up replaying it again a few months later when that feeling of "Maw Separation Anxiety" sets in. Also, the Maw reminds me of that monster in the old B-movie, "Terror-Vision".

The Maw is a pretty fun little action/adventure game in which you are a cute little alien that is imprisoned on a space ship next to a giant mouth with an eyeball. The ship crashes on a planet and you proceed to throw every living creature into that giant mouth.

While the Maw seems pretty light-hearted and not all that-challenging, the game has a darker side behind its cute and seemingly innocent exterior. The first adorable little creature that you see (and hug) is eaten by the Maw, and your character is noticeably shocked by this, but those feelings of sadness and disbelief at the Maw eating that cute little marshmallowy alien baby are quickly forgotten as you try to fill the Maw's insatiable craving for adorable little creatures. This game, in short, is about addiction. Possibly also genocide. Why am I throwing cute babies into a bottomless pit filled with teeth? I don't really know why, and I don't care about their feelings anymore, I just need to throw more alien babies in the pit. I could stop any time I want. Really.

The control scheme is pretty good - I can't speak for the keyboard functions, but the game handles very well with an xbox 360 controller, providing button prompts in the game where needed.

I was pretty disappointed by the DLC for this game; it's simply just some extra levels that should have been included in the game anyway given how short it is. Having said that though, if you are going to buy the Maw, I would recommend getting the Mawesome pack because without the DLC there just isn't enough game here and it doesn't cost a whole lot more than the game by itself.

The final verdict? The Maw is short, but sweet. The game is fairly easy, but it's somewhat cathartic to throw helpless creatures into your own pet monster.

7 out of 10, would throw more cute alien babies into a bottomless pit.
