MAX is a Puzzle game where you shall reach the exit of the room you are in.


Made in 48h from the Ludum Dare Compo by Alberto "_beta" Mellado.


Written in C# on Unity.

Adobe Photshop



You will learn them.
Movement -> WASD
When you push a Key that Key is pushed.
If you dont know what to do at the start press 'S'




This was my 4th Ludum Dare entry and I am quite happy with the result. I think that ading more levels would have been great, but i didnt have time for it. Hope you enjoy it.

I like it, but the problem with making levels is that you can run short in time like this. The concept is good, but the last level feels like a mess (that x in the corner)

Since I didnt have time for making more levels I decided to make the last one overwellming, so the expirience didnt feel as short. The 'x' was there just to bug you hehehe

Hey, that's really innovative and meta. Good, purposeful graphics.
Splash Screen is already interactive!

So far the most innovative game I played in this jam.

WOW, eat that, Mario Teaches Typing!

Like the concept, I think the last level is unsolvable with my keyboard? (the number of keys you can press at the same time is quite limited).

"When you push a Key that Key is pushed."
Real groundbreaking stuff there :P

But actually amazing idea and really great mechanic. My only complaint is the camera angle. It's hard to tell what you have to do because you are obscured by buttons.

Other than that, great!

Very fun! :D

But let me say, change the first level, it take too long to find out what is happening.

I like it, and it has pretty cool concept, it kind of reminded me of twister just for keyboard :D
Note: i was little lost at beginning cause i couldn't see the little guy and had basically no feedback.

Wow, I love the concept!

The robot didn't spawn in my game (like in the screenshots) and I couldn't figure out if it was a bug or if I was doing something wrong.

Hey man, about my game not working on web version, i fixed now, i just accidentaly left on "draft mode" instead of "public mode" so only i could play the game, so really sorry about it!

I will test your game later when i got more time and vote / comment here again, if you can test my web link again, i will be appreciated! ;]

Cool overall, my only gripe is i didn't understand that there's a thing off screen which moves with WASD while you're clicking WASD to do the keyboard thing on the world. My only suggestion would be to remove the W on the first level, so at one point the player will get the character onscreen if he clicks ASD eventually the character gets in the frame. Or just start the character visible.

Yet another five star for innovation fm me too!

Cool idea and great execution, it was like a finger puzzle! :D A little to much information at the same time maybe, at later stages there was buttons and characters all over the place!

That's a good concept, and the execution is good, but I feel like it lacks a "twist"... Also the "x" in the corner is a bit disturbing at first.

I don't have enough key rollover to play this game :(

Ok i am back now!
Well this game is really hard at some levels, need to maintaim my hand and a lot of different keys here, what is great!

Enjoyed this game, its really a different one we used to see here!

I love keyboards!

I hope you get time to make some simpler and more elegant levels in the future. Right now it gets quite messy too fast :)
