Join Maxolotl as he embarks on his first adventure outside of the tank!


Maxolotl was just a simple Axolotl living a simple life in the simplest world he knew - his tank.  One day his owner accidentally knocked a can over, spilling some U Energy into Maxolotl's tank! Overnight, Maxolotl experienced some extreme changes - all of a sudden he was able to think some pretty profound thoughts, and his body had changed - allowing him to walk on 2 legs and swing his arms around! After escaping the tank that he now realized had kept him prisoner for so long he decided to take advantage of his strange surroundings, going on a big adventure to some unknown places!
