    Review Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

    Artful or awful?

    Let’s get this out of the way first: prepare to die a lot in Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.

About The Game

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.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood mixes traditional Scandinavian storytelling with an inventive and colorful 2.5D platformer, combining classic jump and run gameplay with smart and innovative puzzles. By drawing green vines, strong lianas, impressive pillars of earth and powerful streams of water with a magic marker Max can traverse the elaborate cave systems, villages and gloomy castles of Anotherland.
