A downloadable game for Windows

A distress signal brings you to what should be a rocky, barren wasteland of a planet.

On approach to the planet your ship goes haywire. Crash landing deep into a cavernous rift of the mysterious planet, your suit's thruster jets are malfunctioning, making the long climb out, to radio for help, difficult.

But what should have been just a grueling acsent, becomes a fight for your life, as the planet soon reveals a darker purpose, of which you are now an unwilling participant!


Dash Maximus has been updated to compete in the Low Rez Jam here on itch.io! It now has the option to run in Original, or Low Rez Version. The low rez version removes some shader effects that aren't pixel perfect, increases difficulty and of course reduces the resolution down to 64x64 (from 128x120).

Both the low res and original version is included in the new installers ( and greater).

Thanks for playing!

You cool with people doing letsplays of your game? In my case it'll be a short one off, 'cause I suuuuuck at this game, but its fun :3

For sure! Post it here if you do so I can check it out!

Done and done! I've had a blast playing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeOP9FqHTyw

Thanks for playing and sharing! Impressed you made it as far as you did in your first playthrough!

Tough game for me, but I really like it!

Glad you liked it! You aren't the first to say it's too tough! :D

I really like this game. Very interesting mechanics. The art looks great too.

Thanks rude boy, I really appretiate it!

Could do with some ominous sci-fi music :D But otherwise I really enjoy it. Brilliantly simple control scheme. Sprites and tiles are lovely too - really evocative.

Thanks for playing chilly! I was aiming for 'less is more' with the music, but I hear what you're saying!

I'm a big John Carpenter fan - I'll always want more ominous scifi music! :P Have you got any plans for it beyond itch?

I would love to come back and expand on this game more. It was made as part of a one-game-a-month challenge I am doing throughout 2016, so it may be a while.


Nice! I'll be keeping an eye out for the rest of your games this year :D

I am sorry but It crashed after opening..

Hey wuga! Do you know if you have a gpu that supports shader model 4? Any chance I could get a windows crash log event from you?

Steps are here


Sorry dude this looks complicated to me :S I am afraid to say no sorry :(

Ok nevermind what I said. I'll try it later but only because I want to play it :)

Yah i know it is a lot to ask so no worries if you can't do it. But if you do it would go long way!

Cool idea:)

Thanks for playing!
