    Max Stern is a story driven platformer with a brief but intricate plot, referring to a sequence of events, which happened in alternative history in the mid-19th century.


    One day, as Max, a former officer of Her Vaporous Majesty, transported contraband cargo of ammunition, his airship was knocked out over a mysterious tropical island. The force of impact threw Max out of the airship, while it kept moving on automatic pilot and finally fell to the ground at the other end of the island.

    When Max came to himself in the jungle, he decided to move through the thicket to find his airship or at least its debris. At that moment he didn’t even imagine the hell, he would go through…

    Features:

    • An island full of dangers, traps and ruthless enemies
    • You’ll have various guns to grind your vicious foes into dust
    • If at any point your guns seem insufficient, use mines with no doubt
    • Although not very smart, the skeletons are not an easy mark at all. As they are equipped and armed differently, some of them will make you struggle for your life real hard
    • Sometimes shooting is not enough, and you’ll have to solve puzzles to come up with it
    • Try your luck and find hidden places and secret levels

    hi ozzmotor :)
    i tried the html 5 demo of your game. Saddly everything was a little slow because a just have an old computer.

    I think the art in you game is very good, the style and the graphics are very well and the game was working very well, i didnt see any bugs so far:)

    I would enjoy an additional push animation while using boxes.
    It was not very intentional for me that you can only enter ledders from the ground and not while jumping.
    And also that you cant shoot while jumping.

    Thank You, Osmosis.

    I tried to create a game which is generally focused on some sort of a story, adventure and interesting environment and not so much on action with quick moving and constant shooting. Though there is enough of shooting in the game.

    Choosing between shooting while jumping and aiming at a target, I chose accuracy. Aiming at a target while jumping turned out practically impossible (at least, not comfortable very much).

    In relation to ladders - if a player jumps on it, he won't be able to jump past it. Or he'll have to click on an additional button.

    Me gusta... There's something rather addicting about that style of gameplay to me... Think it has to do with the snappiness, and the quick sense of progression, nice.

    I see why you made certain choices, i.e. the stationary firing, and I think I like it, gives the game its own unique feel. Also it seemed to perform fine on my comp, despite poor internet, which usually kills my gaming experiences (blame it all on lag ik lol)

    imo the only real complaints I'd have was, the lack of variation to the environment, and the rather unforgiving, "you don't regen your hp upon death." Buut I don't really see those as being game breaking things quite frankly, so I would say,
    seems like a nicely polished game,
