Game Introduction

Your purpose in this game is to protect Max from all attacks. You can tag Max to give him directions on how to move in each different scene, he must move where it says "enter" or "exit" in order to go to the next scene. Max can also get Power-Pads to gain limited protection from attacks.

Game Play

The object of the game is to help Max find the hidden key and then find the secret doorway to enter the attic, so he will discover "whodunit".

If you shoot enemies while they are walking, they will fire or if you shoot enemies while they are firing, they will exit. If you shoot enemies while they are exiting, they will turn and fire.

Max is able to take many different pathways and if you want him to change his path, you will have to tag him. If he is not ready to change paths, he will bounce up. You must protect Max as much as possible and give him the right directions in order to solve the mystery.
