Reviews for "Dex Maverick"

Really nice little platformer

I really found the nice little additions like ledge grabbing and bouncy mushrooms really touches. I also noticed that the jumping was a little awkward at times, but my computer's slow so it's probably more my problem than the actual game.
The simple but well constructed graphics were also very appealing.

My only suggestions would be the addition of frames per second correction, but it's a little annoying to add sometimes. Other than that; great stuff. I hope to see more in the future :D

ZZR responds:

Hi, thanks for the positive feedback. You could right-click and set the quality to medium or low to possibly fix any frame rate issues. I didn't notice any slow-down on my computer (core2quad @ 2.4ghz, 6gb ram) unless I made it full-screen, then it got a little choppy.

For the jumping, the main thing is to get a little speed going first before pressing jump and also to hold jump down to get a full jump. Like mario, you can control your jump height by tapping or holding down the button. Also, for consecutive jumps, Dex needs to get solid footing before making another jump, but this delay is only about half a second and intentional because I didn't want the jumping to be all spastic.


Nice design, controls are average (jumping was a bit frustrating). An OK game, but not brilliant.

Good game

It is a very good game, the animations are very nice and the idea is clever. all i can say is, i would prefer it if you could sprint.

Pretty good

I thought it was creative with good drawings, however i had a major problem in the beginning with keys sticking and not being able to completely control movement

I like it!

I like the art style used.
