About the Game

Help Maxwell explore unfamiliar worlds, make strange new friends and content with mysterious forces.

Maxwell's homeworld is nearing collapse. In a last-ditch effort to find help, he hyperjumps where no dog has gone before. Stranded, he finds himself at the edge of a hostile system - if there's any hope of return and rescue he'll need every friend (and every weapon) he can find. Like all underdogs, the odds are stacked against him, but you can't keep a good dog down.

Game Features:

Supported languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Arabic

What about modern systems?
The digital ROM works on GBA emulators and the cartridge also on modern GBA-compatible devices like the Analogue Pocket.

A Nintendo Switch and PC port are in development, more details about these versions will be revealed in the near future.
