This. Is. MAXWELLBALL 2 (the text adventure)

No doubt you’ve already played the Maxwellball 2 text adventure game. If not, why not?

Here are some hints for typical problems people are having solving the game. (Highlight the black to show the hint.)

How do I get my box?

Three levels of hints here:
1. You need to distract The Opener. Maybe there’s something on TV he’d like to watch.

2. To change the channel, you’ll need to get the remote from The Selector.

3. Look around while you’re with The Selector. What you have to do is repeated over and over.

How do I get my helmet?

Three levels of hints here:
1. The Coach is very concerned about the team’s performance and how that might affect his future.

2. Maybe there’s something around that could reassure him that his job is safe.

3. Look everywhere. Look inside things. You’ll find something reassuring eventually.

How do I get my other pad?

1. Like Alice, you can go through the looking glass.

2. In a backward dimension, you can post large items (such as pads) for free.

3. Time is weird in mirror dimensions. If you go back there a second time you might bump into yourself from the first time.

How do I get my gloves?

Three levels of hints here:

1. The captain’s hands are very fast. There’s no way you can take anything away from his fidget pile.

2. Maybe you can more gloves to the pile to give you some extra time to grab your gloves.

3. Fire is good for warming people up.

How do I get my bat?

You type in the correct command at the correct time. Couldn’t be easier.

Okay. If there’s anything else you’re having a problem with, leave it in the comments or tweet me at @LiebCricket and I’ll try and give some more hints.

If you’d like more of these games, also let me know that.
