Hands on with TouchArcade.

Front Page article is here. When Arn likes it, we know we must be doing something right!

Oh, and since everyone is going to ask - How is this different from all the other dual stick shooters out there? Glad you asked, imaginary friend. Here's what's different about Max Adventure:

- Plenty of large non-linear levels for you to search and explore
- Diverse mission types. There's more for Max to do than fight off alien hordes (although there's plenty of that, too)
- Puzzle elements. Is this a door I see? Oh no, it's locked! How do I get in?
- Aliens in business suits.

Here's a great preview article from AppAdvice. Trevor did a great job summarizing all the differences between Max Adventure and the other games in the genre.

Another great hands-on preview by TUAW. Yes, there will be different weapon types and power ups

Thanks guys, you're awesome. I've updated my first post with some more info. Look forward to sharing more with you as we work on it. We've had this under wraps for so long, working in our underground lair, it's great to finally have Max out in the open!

We have an old saying in Russia: Don't like it - don't eat it

But yeah, you're right. It's exactly like Minigore. In that it's a dual stick shooter. Read my first post again
